Samen met 14 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 15 dagen naar een natuur en cultuurproject.

• Agro forestry that will include tree planting • Preparation of tree nurseries and weeding • Land scaping and tending to bamboo trees in the natural habitat • Clean up activities • Naming of trees • Home visits • Inter-cultural learning coupled with home visits for exposure to development challenges. • Possibility to visit the historic sites like Hippo point on Lake Victoria in Kisumu City, renowned Kakamega Rain Forest and the Equator point at Maseno University; among other spectacular sites of interest in the region. However, this will be done most probably during the weekends.
The host community will provide a house to accommodate the volunteers 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.
