A section of Kenyans in Canada have urged the government to establish Government-Diaspora Partnership Projects that will see them invest in Kenya.
In a Saturday meeting at Hamilton Visitors Inn, Toronto, with Uasin Gishu Senator Pro. Margaret Kamar the group want the government to forge a diaspora partnership project where services provided can match their diaspora work ethic while promoting job creation in Kenya.
The group proposed projects like Seniors homes, banking institution and construction projects where they can invest their income for good cause.
Some mentioned that micro managing projects in Kenya is a serious issues but can be well improved with the support of Kenyan-Canada partnership.
Same sentiments were shared by others in the meeting where they gave an example how Diaspora community can import the good working ethics which they have already been transformed to after years of Diaspora experience. The Diaspora communities are ready to partner with the local governments in Kenya to replicate and demonstrate good working ethics while there is mutual benefit to the investor as well as to the general public.
The Senator praised the Diaspora community for their relentless support for Global Resource Foundation which natures talented youths from poor families in Kenya and also assist them in finding scholarships in the USA.
Senator Kamar said she is working with local businesses and well wishers to fund raise for children who have talents and their families can not afford college or universities tuition.
She said plans are underway to create camps where those youth can benefit from.
Also present was Pauline Wangari, the President of Kenya Community Ontario Women Forum. Wangari praised the Senator for taking time to listen to Kenyans. She invited all Kenyans to the Heart Lake Run is a 3K Walkathon charity fundraiser for food banks in Ontario held in Brampton, Ontario. The event focuses on Food Security, Environment Conservation and Climate Action which are part of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
