国際連帯税シンポジウム議事録作成

7月26日(木)に開催されました、「SDGsのための国際貢献と国際連帯税を考えるシンポジウム」の議事録を作成しました。録音を聞きながら文章を打ち込んで行く作業ですが、シンポジウム当日はあまり聞く余裕がなかったので、全体の流れを聞く初めての機会となりました。当日は聞くことができなかった方のお話をきいたり、前後の流れを踏まえて改めてご発言を聞く中で、当日は気づかなかったことに気づくことができました。

STAFF SOFT SKILLS TRAINING


In order to enhance the capacity of the local staff in handling various tasks, RESULTS Japan is taking the local staff through a soft skills training. This training aims to make them competitive in the job market, especially in the Japanese working environment.
So far, some of the skills trained include:
Blog writing
This is meant to help the staff capture the work of the organization in precise manner for easy communication to the people who follow the work of RESULTS Japan. It is a very good way of communication, especially to those people interested to know the progress of various projects run by the organization.

Note making
This is an important skill. It enables the staff to get the most important points, and write them for future reference and reporting. This is important in understanding the proceedings of various project missions, and the implementation process.
Official letter writing
Whenever official communication is made, official formats of doing such writing are essential. Therefore, the staff learnt how to communicate effectively to people of various levels, and capture their interest easily.

SUSTAINING PATIENT MANAGEMENT


On Tuesday 7th August, the Kenya team discussed how Kangemi Health Centre can manage emergency case patients without support from partners.
We also discussed how to motivate Perez and Lilian, who are the community focal people in Kangemi, to handle this problem more sustainably.
Among the suggestions we came up with include the following:
Advocating for the county government to establish an emergency kitty fund to facilitate quick movement and medical attention of the patients.
To establish an income-generating protect whose profits can be used to help the emergency cases
To encourage closer monitoring of the patients by the community health assistant (CHA), CHVs and their leaders. This will make it possible to get the patients before they get so sick to the point of emergency.
The area chief can also be involved to encourage the local administration to act swiftly to save a life whenever a case of emergency happens.
The team agreed to encourage the county and sub-county health departments to address the issues. Mr Tomoki would be the lead person in these efforts.

MY GGG+ FORUM EXPERIENCES


RESULTS Japan held a wonderful and successful GGG+ Forum 2018 in Nairobi. Over 240 guests attended.
Local and international organizations like UNICEF, FAO, World Vision, GHIT, MoFA, UNRWA, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Japanese Embassy, Toyota Kenya, LIXIL among many others were represented at the forum.
Guest speakers among them the ambassador, and the CS for health in Kenya and Toyota chairman, Denis Awori made wonderful remarks on how to achieve UHC and SDGs in Kenya.
The discussions focused on the funding, technical aid, professional management, government effort in achieving nutrition, sanitation, and vaccination for TB and Polio for enhanced primary health care.

Unlike Kenyan delegates who can talk for a long time, the Japanese speakers observed only three minutes allocated to each speaker. It was also good to see the Kenyan speakers follow suit.
It is now evident that we can assimilate the best time management skills from other countries such as Japan where time is a pivotal element during work. I can attest that I have not been in such a successful forum where the shortest time lapse one delivers such quality details.

片山公使は1年前、日本リザルツがすなのみ村へ運動靴を輸送する際に関税手続き等でお力添えを下さった、日本リザルツの大応援団です。
今回のケニアで行われた一連の催しでは、他のお仕事の合間を縫って、すなのみ村の小学校の完成式典に参加してくださいました。

スナノミ村の小学校改修、GGG+フォーラムケニア版、そして、結核検査所の譲渡式。一連の催しを成功させることができたのは在ケニア日本国大使館の皆さまのお力添えのお陰です。
本当に有難うございます。
