Accommodation will be at the project in this workcamp and it is important that you have your own sleeping bag and mat. During the workcamp, volunteers will get food from locally available foodstuffs and the volunteers will share the responsibility of preparing the food.
In this workcamp, volunteers can visit Lake Victoria in Kisumu City, which is about a 2-hour drive from the project. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to visit Kakamega Rainforest, which is about one and half kilometer from the project site.
Community Health Volunteers (CHV) was started with the aim of creating awareness on HIV/AIDS among the residents of Vihrembe area, as well as on issues of sexual and reproductive health. CHV is also actively involved in jigger eradication campaigns in the community. In addition, CHV educates the local community about the conservation of Kakamega Rainforest and its fragile ecosystem. The forest is home to many unique and rare animal and plant species but the increasing human population has exerted negative pressures to the forest, e.g. illegal logging, charcoal burning, cattle grazing, harvesting of medical plants and general clearing of the forest for agriculture. CHV involves the community in its preservation, ensuring the forest is cherished as a healthy, unique and diverse ecosystem for future generations. The idea of this project is to create awareness about the negative effects of jiggers on the health of local people.
CIVS organizes safaris to all the spectacular National Parks and touristic sites in Kenya, with the main attraction being Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Volunteers who wish to go on a safari should apply at least two weeks before arrival to enable us to make proper arrangements. The fee charged is all-inclusive of meals, transport, park entry, accommodation and tour guiding. Safari dates: 06th – 08th June 2018 Charges: 3-day Safari to Maasai Mara National Park, 330 Euro
