On the 25th January 2018, SDG hosted a training called “The 45th Tribe” for our volunteers. We had a team of 28 participants from Nakuru, Eldoret and Nairobi. We met at Archives within Nairobi CBD then we walked to the Arboretum. On the way, I demonstrated the core values of SDG;
I did this simply by speaking to people that were living on the streets, taking time to value them and offer them words of encouragement.
We arrived at the Arboretum and did brief introductions. Our founder and my colleague, Shawn, carried out the first section of training with our volunteers explaining the connection between SDG and Tin Roof Foundation. We then took a short break, playing a game for team-building, and had an interaction with the team members. This was followed by the second section of the training where I spoke about the Simply Do Good focus areas.
After the training, I gave each of the volunteers a copy of our SDG Daily calendar and asked them to pick the deeds they felt they would be able to do. We then went into a circle and took time to know what skills each person has and had a prayer session to end the day. I was impressed with how youths like to change the world by taking steps to make it happen. With the training, I am encouraged that many people will get to know how to make their environment and the world a better place.
