This year, MCDF celebrated its second annual Global Female Condom Day on the 16th of September by organizing a breakfast meeting for all the stakeholders at the the Sarova Panafric Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. This was in partnership with Support Worldwide, United Nations Populations Fund (UNFPA), The National AIDS Control Council (NACC) and The National AIDS and STIs Control Program (NASCOP).
It has been a while!
At the beginning of the year, there was a blog piece about being grateful. Mostly, it was about being grateful for the fact that we have lived to see a new year.
We almost headed to the middle month of the year, and if you are reading this, it means you are alive and well. For that reason, i think it is important to take a moment and to thank you.
First let me say that it's not always that you meet people in life and you're never the same again.I Have just completed my internship at Muthaa Foundation and amazingly I had never gone for a single FC2 training (training done on the correct and consistent use of female condoms),so when my boss told me that I was to accompany Esther- Program officer in charge of the FC2 program to a training in Kitale, I was really excited and nervous at the same time.
On Friday, 26th of April, we attended our first ever MDG awards as Muthaa Community Development Foundation. We had been nominated in two categories(at least that was what we went there knowing) and we had high hopes to bag at least one award.
Immediately after work, we headed straight to Crown Plaza, where the venue of the event was. We found some people had already arrived, seated, and chit chatting(probably about the the forthcoming night). We were ushered to our table and we sat down patiently.

Today is the 18th of March, I did a little research and found out some historical things that happened on this day. Here are some but a few:
