Networking to get and to give the best

 Ensuring that we are always well informed and have the latest information at our fingertips is so important to Mama and the Happy House.
Only by making this commitment can we ensure our family gets the best. 
Our social worker and manager, Uncle Billy, is just back from a four day trip to Nairobi where he attended training for management staff orgainsed by  ACCIK (Association of Charitable Children’s Institutions of Kenya).
Held in the suburb of Karen, the course covered ownership and management of children’s homes, resource mobilization and project proposal development;  strategic planning; human resource management including volunteer policy, maintaining basic books of accounts, office administration and procedures.
 Uncle Billy says: "It was informative and underscored Mama’s interest in networking with all other like-minded families nationwide. Hence her subscription the umbrella body
" At our local level, she has  also fully supported the initiation and strengthening up of a network with all service providers catering for the children.
" We conduct monthly meetings which rotate in various homes, sharing experiences in a bid to support one another with fruitful results already  being seen through robust referrals and linkages for children in need of help.  
 "It was a great learning opportunity which will  go a long way in improving service delivery to our deserving children."
