Theme: Environmental conservation. — Project overview The project is located at Emmabwi sub location in Vihiga country approximately 45 Kilometers away from Kisumu city Emmabwi Village Emmabwi is home to approximately 5,500 residents, nearly 63% of which are under the age of 5. Sadly, only six percent of the children in Emmabwi ever complete elementary grades at school. The unemployment rate hovers at 60 percent, and for those who are employed, the average monthly income is only $12 per family. Often child care takes a back seat to finding work, raising food on individual subsistence farms, and caring for sick loved ones. Many children are raised by older siblings who lack knowledge and expertise in child care. — TYPE OF WORK CAMP: Environmental conservation Manual work and Intercultural activities: • Agro forestry that will include tree planting • Preparation of tree nurseries and weeding • Clean up activities • Naming of trees • Home visits • Tree nursery planting • Farm management • Cultural days for various nationalities • Inter-cultural learning coupled with home visits for exposure to development challenges. • Possibility to visit the historic sites like Hippo point on Lake Victoria in Kisumu City, renowned Kakamega Rain Forest and the Equator point at Maseno University; among other spectacular sites of interest in the region. However, this will be done most probably during the weekends.
ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS • Volunteers will stay in a homestead within the community with very basic living conditions. Volunteers have an obligation to climb down the level of the people with the aim of exposure to development challenges. • There is electricity in this homestead • KVDA will provide foodstuffs and volunteers will cook their own meals in turns. Water is available from springs and it is recommended that drinking water should be boiled or medicated. Mineral water available at supermarkets is also recommended. • There is no electricity connection at the project but volunteers can charge their electric appliances at the nearest market center. • Furthermore, we invite you to bring typical food, spices, drinks, games and music from your country (for an intercultural evening) – and a lot of motivation!
