 Farm work which includes horticultural farming, weeding, planting in tree nurseries, clearing of bushes and digging
 Making of bricks which will be used to construct the storage room for farm products
 Making organic manure and biochar which is porous charcoal used in agriculture to help the soil retain its nutrients and water
 Participation in exchange programs in schools: teaching of how to make products from compost manure
 Kiswahili lessons and debate lessons in local schools

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 at Kisumu City and the Kakamega Rainforest, which are about a 2- and 1-hour drive respectively from the project.

Tumaini Nutritious Self Help Group seeks to provide room for better health education for the local community with the goal of enhancing the health of society through nutrition and environmental conservation. They do this through production of organic family food in order to reduce malnutrition cases among children from disadvantaged backgrounds. Through the production of the organic food, the group members are able to improve their farming technique, which in turn promotes the income generating activities of the community at large thus boosting food security and discouraging deforestation. The group members are also engaged in environmental conservation, as they plant trees and use the organic manure in farming.

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, clothes, toys, books, pens, etc.
