Kenia | Cultuur en thema
Samen met 19 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 21 dagen naar een cultuur en themaproject.
Het project duurt van 2 t/m 23 maart.
Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van EUR 300.
Manual work and Intercultural activities: • Tree planting • Creating awareness on HIV /AIDS • Outreach activities on health issues in conjunction with community based organizations • Home visits and inter-cultural learning
• Volunteers will stay in a house provided by the local people 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!
KVDA offers educational tours to spectacular sites including the renowned Maasai Mara Game Reserve at separate fees. Please contact us for specific tour information.
Community Healthcare Volunteers (CHCV) is a youth lead Community Based Organization situated in Mbita sub-county, Homa-bay County. While on a narrow sense, health has been understood as absence of illness; CHCV defines community health as a state of complete well-being in the social, political and economic affairs of national building. The organization was established in October 2012, and is registered as Community Based Organization under the Ministry of Gender and Youth Affairs. Since its inception CHCV continues to be a leading youth platform through which marginalized youths at the grass root level play an increasingly significant role in community empowerment. As we strive towards accomplishing our goals, we remain committed to the principles that guide our organization. Our work continues to be grounded in volunteerism, strengthened by partnerships and focused on building the capacity of individuals at community level.
