Theme: Building the capacity of youth leaders in approaches to peace building and reconciliation. — PROJECT Activities: Volunteers will work for six hours daily from Monday to Friday. TYPE OF WORK CAMP: MANU/SOCI/STUDY Manual work and Intercultural activities: • The physical work will comprise of assisting in repairing classrooms and digging pit latrines for the community school in the post conflict situation. • Youth leaders exposed to skills in the areas of peace building, and reconciliation. • Exchange ideas on on-going and previous peace processes and the strategic role the youth leaders can play. • Youth leaders and the host communities will exchange ideas about peace building and reconciliation strategies leading to future collaborations. • Youth leaders will have combined physical work in a conflict setting with discussions of peace and conflict issues with communities affected by post-election violence. • It is anticipated that the outcome of the identified activities will enhance the process of re-building trust, whose long-term objective is reconciliation. Also, strengthen the youth leaders to respond in an appropriate way in dealing with issues of conflict within their communities. This will also compliment the work of national healing and reconstruction
ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS • Volunteers will stay in classrooms at the School 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. • There is no electricity connection at the project but volunteers can charge their electric appliances at the nearest market center. • However, 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!
