In June there was one of the main coordinators in Kenya Ken Okongo in the Czech Republic and that is why all June was full of different events. There were a lot of discussions, workshops at schools, meetings with adoptive parents or public held there.
This time except Prague and Brno there was a meeting in Krnov, too. In June you could also see an exhibition of pictures of African children as a part of the competition of the Czech Radio We are drawing online.
Ken spend this time together with us so he could show to children and parents African culture, music and everyday reality. You can see the pictures in Letohrádek Kinských – Musaion in Prague until September (more on www.rozhlas.cz/malujeme). Focused on Africa was also a pleasant event, where, except a rich programme for children and youth, there was an interesting discussion about developing projects. Adoptive parents, Czech doctors working in a clinic on Rusinga Island or representatives of the organisation Educon and Czech against poverty took part in the discussion and described their experience.
To see more we attach a few pictures from these events in the photogallery.
If you, as a school, adoptive parents or public did not take part, do not worry, in October another Kenyan coordinator comes to us and there will be plenty of chances for personal meetings :)
