Theme: The Youth Reproductive Health Challenges in Kenya. — PROJECT Activities: • Volunteers will work for six hours daily from Monday to Friday. • The inhabitants are Maragoli speaking people residing in the western part of Kenya. Their main economic activity is food crop farming, where farmers grow maize, beans, sweet potatoes and other horticultural crops for economic use. • The group was started in 2009 and later registered under the social services in 2011. It consists of 46 members of which 39 are disabled and 7 are caretakers. Their mission was to build the capacity of the disabled in the community to enable them access their rights TYPE OF WORK CAMP: Disability and Social Manual work and Intercultural activities: • Home based care of the disabled • Care and support of orphans • Small scale poultry and dairy goat farming • Basket and bead weaving • Empowerment on income generating activities that can support the group • Home visits • Cultural days for various nationalities • Topical discussion on the rights of people with disabilities with the local people.
ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS • Volunteers will stay in a homestead 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!
