 Door-to-door jigger eradication campaign
 HIV/AIDS home-based care program
 School outreach programs
 Awareness creation in the community on sexual and reproductive health
 Rehabilitation and conservation of Kakamega Forest through the establishment of tree nurseries
 Organizing of games and sports in local schools as well as playing with the children

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 T he Crying Stone and Kakamega Rainforest, which are about five kilometres and one and half kilometre from the project site respectively.

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 and awareness 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.

Volunteers are required to carry the following items for the workcamp: mosquito net, torch/flashlight, toiletries, first-aid kit, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, working gloves, sandals and sunscreen. In addition to those, volunteers can also carry the following items for interaction purposes: pictures of your country, old clothes that are no longer in use, toys, books, pens, etc.
