NINETEEN YEARS' AGO -
Coastweek August 17 - 23, 1999:

Coastweek -- ON August 9, 1999 twelve communities of Taveta Division, Taita Taveta District signed a partnership agreement with the Taveta Early Childhood Development (ECD) Project, a project of the Aga Khan Foundation, Kenya and in partnership with the Bernard van Leer Foundation, Netherlands. 

The ECD Project is part of a national pilot programme funded by the World Bank through the Ministry of  Education and Human Resource Development that is being implemented by the ministry as well as by selected NGOs like the Foundation, in different parts of the country. 

The main goal of the Taveta ECD Project is to improve the quality and access of ECD services for 0-6 year old children in 35 communities in the division, through the strengthening and establishment of sustainable community based mechanisms for providing those services.

 

Jake Grieves-Cook, Former Block Hotels Director Returns To Kenya

Coastweek --  PLANNING TO return to live in Kenya next year is Jake Grieves-Cook the founder of a very successful tour business ‘Tropical Places’ in the UK who intends specialising in the development and promotion of up-market tourism and safaris offering a more ‘personalised experience’ here.

He was formerly Managing Director, Block Hotels, Kenya.

Jake will be making use of air travel (Air Kenya) between designated camps, which have been very carefully selec-ted, for their quality and services - most organising ex-clusive game drives in ‘open’ vehicles with their own local driver/ guides who have an intimate knowledge of the flora and fauna after living in the area for many years.

His decision to return to Kenya was made at a time when, unbeknown to him, Tourist and Transport Consult International of Dublin, Ireland, was carrying out studies on behalf of the European Union to guide the Kenya Tourist Board in its forward planning. Their findings in a consumer study undertaken early 1998 and released early this year, forecast that over the next ten years the rate of growth in long-haul travel from the UK, USA and Germany, will be faster then the rate of growth to closer markets.

Also revealed was that ‘For most travellers the compelling reason to visit Kenya will be for the safari wildlife experience’..
