Developing Structures and Mechanisms for Harvesting, Documentation and Sharing of Success Stories Demonstrating Outcomes and Impact Made by Likoni CDAC Interventions.
The importance of harvesting, documenting and sharing Likoni CDAC community interventions success stories was discussed. The session noted the formation of the Likoni CDAC and its community engagement strategy as the first success story with the community feeling its presence through public participation processes and involvement in determining community projects of high interest.
Chair shared the story of a girl saved from committing suicide following inability to secure school results and join University.
The importance of continuous harvesting of success stories was discussed. For instance success stories could focus on local content opportunities demonstrating how implementation of various community projects was creating both direct and indirect economic benefits.
The regular M & E reports would be one way to harvest and document stories, the magazine / communication CDAC team would be responsible to compile the success stories and share them with stakeholders through the magazine, social media platforms and other in person stakeholder engagement fora.
Members were introduced to the Virtual Resource Centre and Business Hub Community Projects Profiling and Reporting tool https://bit.ly/3qh8Z2b to upload and share community projects success stories.
The Virtual Resource Centre and Business Hub community projects profile sharing platform is basically a stakeholder feedback blog platform to share community projects progress and receive feedback from diverse stakeholders. Most of the information shared here is picked from the monthly reports. Most importantly the platform emphasis the need to bring out opportunities for project expansion and partnership. This is meant to influence other interested investors to consider contributing to the success of specific projects. The page can be used by investors and donors to align their community programs with key priority projects published on the platform.
All prioritized projects for Likoni CDAC to feature on this platform for public awareness and for stakeholder engagements with a view to attracting strategic partnerships to amplify projected outputs, outcomes and long term impact among targeted beneficiaries.

COVID – 19 Emergencies, Risk Behaviour Monitoring, Reporting & Quick Response
The Qivuli COVID – 19 initiative is challenging grassroots communities to come up with home grown solutions to help themselves fit into the new normal set up, and build long term resilience for their communities.
As the country prepares for reopening after stringent COVID – 19 regulations, including lock downs, curfews, boarder restrictions, limited business activities and social activities, there is a compelling need for the establishment of sustainable grassroots initiatives to caution communities against second wave virus attack once the strict public engagement rules are relaxed.
We are inviting interested community members and organised groups to submit creative, innovative community led COVID – 19 Emergencies, Risk Behaviour Monitoring, Reporting and Quick Response Solutions, to help them raise funds required for implementation through the Qivuli Crowdfunding platform.
Is your community threatened and affected by radicalization and violent extremism? Do you think that your community if adequately supported can help eradicate the problem of radicalization and violent extremism in your area? Qivuli Cha Faraja initiative is giving you an opportunity to develop and submit home grown solutions and raise funds for implementation through the Qivuli crowdfunding platform.
Several by elections are expected to happen before the general election in 2022. Following the demise of the Msambweni Constituency Member of Parliament the late Hon. Suleiman Dori, a by election is expected.
As usual elections in Kenya are characterised by hate speech, use of vulgar language, character assassination during campaigns, undemocratic practices during part primaries, emergence of radical extremist factions and actual violence during the campaign period, during the material voting day and even post elections.
The Building Bridges Initiatives (BBI) is preparing for referendum which may take the country through a more or less election experience and related challenges.
The Qivuli Cha Faraja initiative is encouraging communities and organised groups to submit local community owned solutions that will help monitor the political environment to detect any early signs of potential conflict and violence, address them in time to prevent human and property losses and general violation of electoral laws and due processes for valid electoral outcomes.
Through the Qivuli initiative, we are providing a platform and networks that could help raise the requisite resources to enable the implementation of your home grown solution.
Many women continue to endure great pain and losses due to domestic violence affecting married women, widows, divorcees, as well as through sexual exploitation of teenage girls and domestic labour injustices. In some instances, domestic violence has affected men as well.
Great human rights injustices have also been meted out to communities and populations as a whole, based on geographical positioning, political affiliation, religious affiliation, tribe and cultural background. Other aspects of human rights violations relate to historical injustices that remain unresolved till date, as well as police brutality meted on innocent vulnerable members of the society who are looking up to the police force for security.
If you think your community is going through such experiences of domestic violence and general human rights violations, the Qivuli initiative is encouraging you to mobilise your community and generate home grown solutions which could help mitigate the problem. The Qivuli crowdfunding initiative is happy to offer you the platform and resourceful networks to help you raise the resources you may require to implement your grassroots community owned solution.
Environmental Concerns & Disaster Management – Early Warning Early Response Community Initiatives
Is there anything happening around you that could be a threat to the environment and natural resources around you? Could it be mining activities, fishing, deforestation, major construction work, interference with marine ecosystems, industrial emissions, floods, landslides, garbage disposal, sewage overflow and leakages, freshwater pipe leakages and related concerns?
The Qivuli initiative is encouraging community members and organised groups to develop local community owned and sustainable solutions for a better environment and prevention of disasters related to environmental malpractices.
Submit an innovative and creative solution which we can link to the Qivuli crowdfunding platform and related networks to help raise the requisite resources to support implementation of your solution.
