Project background Community Healthcare Volunteers (CHCV) is a youth lead Community Based Organization situated in Mbita sub county, Homabay County. While on a narrow sense, health has been understood as absence of illness; CHCV defines community health as a state of complete well-being in the social, political and economic affairs of national building. The organization was established in October 2012, and is registered as Community Based Organization under the Ministry of Gender and Youth Affairs. Since its inception CHCV continues to be a leading youth platform through which marginalized youths at the grass root level play an increasingly significant role in community empowerment. As we strive towards accomplishing our goals, we remain committed to the principles that guide our organization. Our work continues to be grounded in volunteerism, strengthened by partnerships and focused on building the capacity of individuals at community level. Vision: We envisage a healthy and empowered community in which all individuals have the opportunity to reach their highest potential Mission: To improve community wellbeing and better lives through lasting ways by advancing integrated, locally driven solutions for community development. — 1.
