Hello world!

Welcome to the Rescue Kenya Initiative – an initiative aimed at moving Kenya forward from the post election crisis through a results oriented approach by harnessing the collective efforts of Kenyans and friends of Kenya.

We are starting with putting up an information portal where all the various initiatives can post their information so that anyone who wanted information on the post election crisis can get it in one place. This will be at https://rescuekenya.wordpress.com

We are also working on an ICT solution for coordination of the various initiative so that the resources and talent of all concerned can be effectively and efficiently used.

Ideas and suggestions are welcome from all.
