I hope you all are doing well. I wish to follow up on our recent chats about the “Access to Internet Support campaign” by Bidii Yetu, a group of refugees in Kakuma camp, Kenya. It began with my observing chat threads on Deep Adaptation Forum, followed by inviting Martin Abumba and Mulamba Placide, to our Thursday Zoom chats, where we learned more about Bidii Yetu's challenges and aspirations. Now some exciting news for us. Dorian Cave and Wendy Freeman, DAF moderators, will host a Solidarity Experiment online event. As a DAF Solidarity Experiment team player, I am inviting you to join us which is well before our normal Thursday RVL chats; See both invites below:
As you know, this experiment is an invitation to engage in ‘right’ relations with DAF solidarity projects – currently, these are “Make Bafut Ecovillage Green Again” by Better World Cameroon, and “Access to Internet Support campaign” by Bidii Yetu, Kakuma refugee camp, Kenya. We aim to engage in learning about solidarity through supporting these projects with money/energy exchange, accompanied by monthly calls exploring the various personal, cultural and socio-political aspects of solidarity and decolonisation.
Your invited to talk about initiatives that make a difference. This is the perfect opportunity to share ideas. We'll be discussing various projects that aim to promote a local economy. It's a time to say what's happening.
