Take a look at some interesting things my friends are doing for their home community in Western Kenya: Friends of Yimbo , and the resource that motivates many of the contributions I make concerning what works best: Aid Watch (worth consulting daily if you're involved with this kind of thing).
FOY asks the Yimbo community to work toward getting what it wants most, then provides a little help from its friends. The first project is construction of a school library/community center. The ground breaking was July 2008. Some US friends will celebrate with the locals when the facility opens later this summer (2009).
