victoriaKIOKOmakueni . 2012/13 reach out and touch “Let us the excluded, the poor, the lonely, the marginalized and the unwanted according to the graces we have received, and let us not be ashamed or slow to do this for though humble, it’s noble work.” I quote Elizabeth Candy Staton “Because man and woman are the complement of one another, we need womans thought in national affairs to make a safe and stable government”. This has been the quest of Aunty Vicky since her formal introduction into Public Service beginning with the Ministry of Home Affairs and National Heritage in Kenya in 1986, to the Department of Social Services of East Sussex County in Lewes, United Kingdom, and up to her most recent function in developing or enhancing capacities with Members of Parliament serving in various functions. Aunty Vickys Mission draws and builds upon the past 26 years work knowledge and experience in development work, and development work processes. It aligns and is in harmony with the on-going VOW Internationals Training Framework consisting of information, education and capacity enhancement training for skills and capacities across Political, Economic, Corporate, Socio-Economic and Cross- Cutting Pillars of activities of daily public and private life, cascading from International, Regional, National, sub-National and Grassroot levels, and vice versa. Aunty Vicky posits and believes in the inherent goodness of man and that given certain levels of knowledge and capacities, man insecurities can be reduced and transformed towards each other fellow mans well-being. She deeply believes that HOPE is not a deceptive but true living state of humanity.
