Redefining Life in Africa Foundation.

The last time I talked about the rebirth of Life in Africa, I jumbled it up to include all the three arms of LiA. It was talking about what their different functions were supposed to look like. And where each one of them operates from. For the past three years or so, the foundation has been working to set up some few model communities among which is the Kireka community whose Administrator you can get in touch with here; and now that this is more or less done, then is the time for us to get back to our original vision.

It may be of interest to know that as the different arms developed into autonomous entities, LIA foundation is left with the simple task of getting to know many more local organizations better and help them get connected to the outside world. So many people are trying their best in their simple ways to change the world, but their voices are unheard just because they do not have the means to do so. Thanks to the internet that is making the world one small village. Through the internet we shall help such organizations and other people from around the world who want to help in their own ways, get in touch with them and realize their dreams. There are many resources out there and when people have the opportunity to know one another better, they may be very useful.

Many people always try to give assistance to the people they support here, but end up failing because sometimes the said organizations are brief cased or are non existent and that marks the end of the road to the otherwise very well intentioned assistance. We would really like to help the people who have had such problems and those who may be intending to start doing something here, but are some how scared that it may not work because of the same reason. We are very well versed with the local communities here and have been traveling in different parts of the country, thus easy access to any kind of information that may be useful. We can also be able to help disbursed any funds when necessary, and if there’s any need for a 501(c) 3 status, we have our LIA USA arm which will be in a position to assist you in this field. When this is fully developed, we are very sure it will make work a lot easier for all of us.

This exciting development is just the tip of the iceberg. LIA Foundation has really a lot in store to help with connecting people in this internet world, and a lot of other activities found here on our website.

Let's continue meeting in this small global village.

Grace, you're on fire! Thank you for helping us see your new directions. I just found out that my friend Wilfried from Amasiko will be visiting me today, and it occurs to me that his Amasiko project could be an ideal client for online reporting services. If you could get a campaign set up at to raise funds for Life in Africa's costs of online reporting about the Amasiko project, I think he's got many potential supporters who would contribute to it. I will talk to Wilfried about it later today and see what he thinks. What do you think?
