Virtues Activities Are Expanding

May 2022 Training in Kakamega
May 2022 Training in Kakamega

Virtues training resumed on May 21, with the virtues pick, Righteousness!  Since we have a venue for our trainings, we have focused a lot of energy into community-based virtues trainings.  Twenty-eight people were in attendance at our May training including teachers, post-secondary school teenagers, parents, virtues facilitators, clergy, business and civil service members. Success stories were shared by teachers, law enforcement, and community development group members.

In addition to virtues training, community development group members will receive training in table banking, farming indigenous crops and raising poultry.  We provide the initial seedlings and poultry.  Recently we resorted to rearing ducks, instead of chickens, because chickens were proving to be too costly due to their suceptibility to sickness and the cost of vaccines.   

We  are in discussions with school officials on how to bring virtues training into the school curriculum.  We have been referred to Nairobi for further dscussions on our way forward..  

We are are also in discussions to bring virtues training for police officers as part of the Kigano College police training program.  The vision is that officers would graduate with a Virtues Certificate to help them reduce corruption cases in the country and promote integrity.  

We have been able to translate virtues cards from English to Swahili.  We hope to raise funds from the sale of these cards to support  The Virtues Project training  that we provide with the support of the Virtues Project International Association.

We thank you for your ongoing financial support and encouragement.
