I enjoyed every minute in Kenya. I thank ESCR-Net for the African experience. They all worked so hard, to ensure the meeting was a success. We  must now tell our story to our communties.To ensure success of the meeting. We must do our path.

I  write to express my sincere appreciation to you all for the successful hosting of the last
International Strategy and General Assembly Meeting almost a month ago.
It was really challenging putting that event together considering the hurdles that have to be
overcomed but it was awesome seeing the success that was recorded in those few days
inspite of all  odds and the quality and quantity of representation.
According to Mark Twain, "A man with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds", though
many people played diiferent roles to make the event happen, the ultimate credit goes to a
large extent to all of you in the secretariat who provided the leadership, the organisational
skills, the content, the peaceful ambience and who worked sleepless nights and tirelessly to
make the meeting worthwhile.  No word can adequately express my deep sense of appreciation. I am only proud of you all and also humbled. 
My  only plea is that in the coming days ahead and as we march to protect Economic, Social
and Cultural Rights in 2009 and beyond, I will be counting on your greater collaboration, support, advice and commitment to advance the cause of ESCR rights. And as usual, I 
trust that you will not disappoint me.

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the International Strategy Meeting on ESCR. It was nice meeting you all there. The workshops were rich and well organized.  It was good learning for me.  The General Assembly was well facilitated and you deserve all praise for it.
