Theme: Youth Entrepreneurship and Leadership Development. — INTRODUCTION Ebusiralo Youth Polytechnic was founded in the year 2002 to offer vocational training to the youths. The polytechnic has enrolment of 110 trainees’ male and female. The trainees are youths aged above 14 years. The Polytechnic is located in Western Kenya, Vihiga County, Emuhaya district; Luanda Township situated more than 400 kilometers from Nairobi. KVDA organized a work camp in 2009 that jump-started the construction of the first administration block that is yet to be completed as the inaugural step to develop the infrastructure at the Polytechnic. There are ten instructors and the one-acre land on which the Polytechnic is constructed is owned by the institution. — ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE CENTRE • Garment making/Beauty therapy. • Electrical installation. • Motor vehicle mechanics • Welding and fabrication • Masonry/carpentry. • Computer which is compulsory to all trainees • Sports and physical education • Metal processing technology • Information communication technology • Agri-business • Workshop construction
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. • 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. • The Government policy to install ICT in primary schools has seen connectivity to the national power grid for most educational institutions in Kenya and this makes it easy for volunteers to use electric appliances while at the project. • 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!
