Theme: REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH EDUCATION, PROMOTION OF GENDER EQUALITY AND WOMEN EMPOWERMENT. — Project overview Esiarambatsi Health Centre is one of the health centers established in the wider Emuhaya district to cater for the medical needs of the local people in the community. It’s a community based health center which cares for mothers, children’s and also people living with HIV/AIDS. The centre also offers pre-and ante-natal cares to women. The local community is composed of the Luhya community which occupies the vast western Kenya region and the local people are hospitable and welcoming. HIV/AIDS is a major challenge in the local community that has resulted into many challenges that have had a negative impact on the socio-economic development of the community. — Nature of Work: Volunteers placed in this project will be involved in the following activities: • Medical work in the dispensary such as registration of patients, giving out patients following the doctors’ description, observation and noting the progress of every patient, and cleanliness at the hospital. • Family planning services, immunization, maternal and child health are some of the services offered at the project • The volunteers will also be involved in awareness creation in the community to promote the sustainability of the livelihood among community members both in community forums and also in local schools. Moreover, volunteers placed in this project will engage the community members in a study topic: focus on public health and sanitation especially in the local schools to be able to develop a young generation that is equipped with information. Hence volunteers will be expected to work hand in hand with the hospital management to realize the goals of the placement in this project and thus enhance the capacity of the health facility. • The volunteers will be assigned duties in the health facility by professional staff
ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS • Volunteers will stay in a house provided by the local community with very modest living conditions. Volunteers should bring sleeping bags and mats and have an obligation to climb down the level of the people with the aim of exposure to development challenges. • 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 School 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!
