2. SIDAREC (Kenya) Resource Centre and Radio Station Destroyed: Rebuil

Dear Friends,

I have recently received some terrible news from George Onyango, co-founder of SIDAREC, a dynamic youth-focused nonprofit operating in some of Nairobi's most disadvantaged communities, among them Kibera and Pumwani.

One of their best-known and most-utilized libraries, and a radio station that--during last year's violence-- continually promoted peace and tolerance, have been lost in a raging fire, one that burned everything to the ground.

SIDAREC has pledged to the young people and residents of Pumwani that it will rebuild these invaluable resources. To do it as quickly as possible, they need as much help as they can get. Donations of equipment, books, money, and other kinds of supplies will all be useful, and deeply appreciated.

Please see George's contact information below, and visit SIDAREC at http://www.sidarec.org

With greatest thanks for whatever you can do, and blessings to all! Janet (Feldman, kaippg@earthlink.net)


Dear Friends,

I wanted to bring to your attention the loss we just had here in our organization. The Pumwani Resource Centre got burned to the ground yesternight. We lost everything....our radio station, the library, and classrooms.

What took years to achieve went up in smoke within hours. We cannot speculate yet about the fire, but we did make some enemies last year with our work on civic education, and through the radio programs on peace.

Pumwani has been a reminder to most of us what determination and hard work can achieve. With the help of friends now we hope to rebuild. The radio station can be up in the next two weeks if we get equipment. The library will take another three months, depending on how fast we move with fundraising.

We are asking all friends and well-wishers to do what they can to help. Please contact George Onyango at geogias@yahoo.com for more information, or about donations. Greatest thanks to all!

Latest Upload on Development Dilemmas:

Politics of Embankment

In this edition of Development Dilemmas, we travel to Bihar, India where about 4.8 million people have been swamped by the floods in the Kosi River this year. UN estimates say India has the second highest number of deaths in the world due to flooding; Bihar is the highest flood prone area in India. Experts in Bihar refuse to accept the disaster as a natural occurrence; they say embanking of the river has made the floods disastrous over the years. Dinesh Kumar Mishra, the engineer-activist who founded the Barh Mukti Abhiyan (Freedom from Floods Campaign), speaks to our correspondent, Gokul Chandrasekar, on how the Indian government's flood-control programme has gone awry and exposes the politics behind the persistence with the myth of embankments.
