This week has been tremendously busy for me in my work schedule moving up and down. As the Kibera Agenda were closing their end of the year savings and loaning, I have been involved in preparation of their financial statement and presented it to each member during the closure. The group members scrutinized their savings and were satisfy with the figures I presented to them yesterday. Otherwise it was okay and splendid day and recommended for the effort of updating it.
Apart from that, Moi and I have designed a center membership card for children to enable them next year access the community center programs and they looked nice.
- Transparency is essential in any group work and people can trust you while managing their funds/assets and confidence is built on someone.
- With each child having a membership card, the center will be able to notice a strange person hence improve efficiency in its operation with minimal hiccups.
