I used to call it Nairobbery since I got robbed lol..which was about 9 years ago..and the name Zain virjee rings a bell but I don't remember who that is..

and nope..I'm not a Stanmoron...because I'm not from London..I live elsewhere..

I would tell you.. but then I'd have to kill you..

and yeah I miss every single thing about my home land :P

getting robbed in a nairobbery is a statistical probabilty, just dont resist or act funny. I have been carjacked coming home one night from majlis and ever since then i choose to stay at home or if i got out, i am home by latest 9 unless if its my koroga nite on wednesday. Its not only safer but cheaper.

zain virjee was with capital fm and then she joined CNN. I am surprised you dont know that.

and yes i know where you live now, you are from loootun or peterborough....and you hang out with kevin and tracey and doss bout in the ford cor'eeena. you dont have to kill me for that, just take more prozac....lol

I want to visit South Africa and Kenya. And I've always dreamed of going to areas most affected by HIV/AIDS... in particular, I've wanted to work with children affected by HIV/AIDS and help build an infrastructure where their care is optimized and efficient.

I've been to Egypt.

But other than that... nope.

Kenya and South Africa would be great countries to visit for your kind of work cos of governmental compliance towards western ideas in combating these problems, but countries like Zimbabwe or Congo where the situation is chronic would be absolute nightmare for you.

But be careful of South Africa owing to a high crime rate of the most brutal nature occurring in broad daylight. Joburg is the murder capital of the world if I am not mistaken.

In the African terrain, political and economic stability are vital or else you cannot get any meaningful work done. Individula egos and agendas thereof can prove to be constant impediments. As a result you can rule out going to countries like Zimbabwe which is undergoing civil strife and Congo which is a constant war zone.

But a country Kenya and South Africa where there is political and economic stability as per the African benchmark, you can achieve a lot. NGO's are already in place. If you can penetrate any NGO, then you will be quite successful in your achievements.

If I were you, contact a Khoja organization called World Federation and ask them what health projects they may have for Africa or even India or Pakistan. If they have anything for Kenya or Tanzania, snap it up cos it will be an interesting experience for you and might even reflect well on your CV.

If that is not suitable, Indiana Univ have an AIDS project in Kenya. They are our clients when it comes to hotels bookings and safaris. I can always put you in touch with someone high up the food chain. Students from all over the world come to score credits. I will post a link for you and then you can check it up. If you feel like taking it up further, then please email me.

Hehe, I'm checking. I love Africa, and just like Path, I've always wanted to visit South/East-Africa. Only been to Egypt, and to me, it was yet another Arab country.
