Below is described the kind of initiative that is possible. A response to these developments comes from ABC4All Mentor Turyatunga Bob Maahe:
All what has been talked actually has touched my heart and the only word l can say to Muddu is that, thank you with these courageous words but the journey is still long as you know that no one is on our side to come for our rescue in seeing all these challenges put a side.
It is only Burt who can now make some arrangement for us in collecting volunteers to come and help us through, because me I believe in volunteers support especially from those developed countries and our duty is to encourage them and demonstrate of voluntary part in stepping ahead with what we have already done for the communities in Africa. And Burt can do this with help of ABC4All at his place.
I have seen you with vocational programs, if you feel you need tools you will contact me, l have a donor in UK,who can send you tools of all kind and in case you think this will be helpful to your organization plz, you can call me.

NOTE: Regarding Bob's statement, "Only Burt" above, we know that no one is indispensible.
As individuals we are all here for a temporary time on this planet. The innovative aspect of our together working on the implementation of the Legacy of ABC4All as a virtual entity making possible opportunites that were not available before is that regardless of who founded or co-founded ABC4All, regardless of who are involved with the Key Core Team or with the ABC4All Global Mentoring TEAM Project or with the expanding Team of TEAMS, the fact is that:
The ABC4All momentum gaining hold in the world has a life of its own and will continue no matter who is involved.
The CELEBRATION OF ONENESS Movement that launched in 2006 is here to stay and is one of the many thousands of organizations and individuals throughout the world who support "TheShift" currently underway.
Elsewhere FOCUS ON AFRICA: What a Mentor Can Do was shared with the participation of ABC4All Mentor Turyatunga Bob Maahe from Uganda assisting with the coordination of communication with all of Africa's Youth. Here is his TIG profile.
Close on Bob's heels, another ABC4All Mentor, also from Uganda, Muddu Yisito Kayinga, the founder and executive director of an NGO in Uganda called COTFONE - Community Transformation Foundation Network operating in Masaka Region relatively quickly explored ABC4All in great detail, asked many questions, and arrived at the following decision, described below. First, here is a response to these developments:
This is the kind of initiative that can bring RELIEF and better conditions to the world.
As volunteers via ABC4All coordinating communication among all African constituents, we are not beholden to any government or policy. We are simply grassroots people with good hearts and who will be able to assist via the coming FOREVER Campaign for Global Humanitarian Relief (FCGHR).
To this end we are communicating with those involved as Young African Leaders: Clearinghouse for The President's Forum with Young African Leaders - Please CLICK! on "Resources" and "Africa Leads the Way to GHR?" http://trunity.net/yal/
including Koffi Nomedji
and Adewole Taiwo, Co-Founder, Local ABC4All / Nigeria.
This email will also be cc'd to all the leaders of ABC4All Global Mentoring TEAM Project as yet another example of what MentorS can do when they put their minds to it: http://projects.tigweb.org/abc4allglobalteam
Thank you all for inspiring cooperation for what the world needs now.

My name is Muddu Yisito Kayinga, the founder and executive director of an NGO in Uganda called COTFONE - Community Transformation Foundation Network operating in masaka Region.
Brief Organization history.
COTFONE was founded to respond to the growing levels of vulnerability among young OVCs living in rural households. The plight of the young people is affected by HIV prevalence among young cohorts, socio-economic vulnerability, and lack of employable skills for school dropout youth and continued abuse of the fundamental rights of children and youth. Therefore, the organization was formed with a mandate to mobilize and work with young people to develop themselves, by addressing their HIV/AIDS, Adolescent Sexual Reproductive health, education, vocational and economic needs.
Am more than glad to meet you and to learn more about the great work you're doing to our beloved nation. I can't imagine such great efforts resulting from young people while adult officials in government are just thinking about corruption and even eating our governmental funds that would benefit young people which accounts to over 50 % of Uganda's Population. I can't imagine.
On the other hand, Am happy to hear that your really following Burt's Worldwide Initiative and am sure this is more beneficially to our poor communities since Burt's country is a step a head so let's share his and other co' expertise and we transform our communities.
I have no doubt that through this connection we shall be able represent our needy communities to the entire world to ensure there improved livelihoods. But my concern personally being an orphan is to ensure Orphans and vulnerable children empowered with skills and resources to lead healthy, self-reliant lives and to become agents of change in their communities. And with vast experience of over 7 years working with my NGO COTFONE. am sure that me and u we're very much positioned to change our contry and the entire world.
After Knowing Bob being the coordinator for African youth am happy that you're taking over such voluntary posts and ready to serve to your best. In my capacity am happy to inform you that i wish to supplement on your efforts by founding the African Charter (ABC4All Africa) where wish to persuade my continental partners in this move and again to ensure that i spearhead a basis for Continental Networking which will help us in reducing duplication of work and to ensure a combined arm for resource mobilization and impact retention without institutionalizing countries. And i wish to coordinate this move to the African Union Action for Youth and declared African Charter that is not yet disseminated in all
the African countries Including Ours Uganda.Please i expect support from you to achieve this strategy and i know with the movement am anticipating to establish will help us achieve other benefit like convincing our country to designate a youth delegate to the UN who is not there but just using old people to take up our position there. Can u Imagine.
Please let's start you will imagine the results.
We have struggled a lot to do the work of the Government like supporting Orphans but when unsupported by the government itself rather than fundraising already big NGOs like TASO, UWESO. Do u think they have being impact with alot for Billions given to them. I doubt. But we who even depend on Director's Contributions we're able to benefit more than they do. Like Me with my NGO we're reaching Over 1,000 OVC in the regions and over 500 Households and other vulnerable communities.
Please let's connect and boom Uganda and Africa.
Note. African is greatly over represented by KENYA but this time we need to change it. No time to sleep we're all Africans.
Please Burt, Get me the list of active Member NGOs in Africa, Bob let's share the contacts u have already. Others will find us on the way.
