    Dear sir/ madam,


    We are the community based
    organization based in Mukuru slums that is working for the betterment of the
    lives of those that are staying in the slums of Nairobi Kenya.

    Our core values of the CBO are;

    Health 5.
    Wash (water, sanitation and health)

    2. People with
    disability 6. Women and youth empowerment

    3. Child protection 7.

    Hiv/aids 8.

    We could kike to partner with your
    good office so that we can serve our people better. The CBO is having an office
    in their community center that is within the slums that shows that we know the
    problems that are in the community. We were affected by poverty ourselves that
    is why we have stood up to fight it at the ground.

    Most of the people from the slum
    are having a problem of fearing the name bank that is why they do not take
    loans. And also they ask a lot of sureties so that they can issue the loans.

    In HIV/AIDs and the child
    protection we would like to have a VCT and a child protection office within the
    slums that is running throughout the year. This is to care for the affected and
    the orphans whom are staying in the slums.

    Thank you.

    Yours faithfully.

    Samuel Morara Mose.

    CBO Secretary / Project Officer.
