IT IS GOOD TO BE BACK-Director
Ruben Centre was up to its tricks on Thursday 18th January. A Centre with a vision and mission for a just and empowered Mukuru community. I had been away in Australia for two months for a holiday and to also network with donors and friends of the Centre. Often any holiday I have can be rushed, leaving me returning with the sense that I still have unfinished business but not this time. I actually found myself looking forward to returning to Ruben Centre.But however true that may have been, it was not the amorphous Centre that was creating this gravitational pull, rather the community that is the Centre. Staff, friends, volunteers, children in their thousands and of course the sick and down and outs who long for something better are all dear to me and who value my five shillings worth of presence.
