We will pick up all volunteers taking part in this workcamp from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi. CIVS will arrange accommodation before and after the workcamp in a host family in the Buruburu area of Nairobi.
Accommodation will be at the project in this workcamp and it is important that you have your own sleeping bag. 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, which is about a 1-hour drive from the project. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to visit the Ahero rice fields, the local market or take an optional one-day trip to Kakamega Rainforest.

The Ahero Resource Centre is located in Ahero, about 25km east of Kisumu town. The Centre serves as a One-Stop-Shop, offering a variety of services to the local community. The centre is equipped with a training facility to provide capacity building on Drought Resilient Agriculture, Entrepreneurship, Early childhood Education and Computer & work readiness skills. The in-class training is complemented by practical learning on the adjacent Farmer Field School (Model Farm) which also encompasses a Greenhouse, Tree Nursery and Poultry Farm, fish pond that provide practical examples of modern farming practices as well as a source of nutrition and income for the Orphan Feeding Program.
Computer and work preparedness training is complemented with an equipped computer center. The kindergarten has 2 teachers and 75 children who are vulnerable to HIV/AIDS.The Ahero Resource Centre is also equipped with a comprehensive rainwater-harvesting infrastructure to fully utilize the short and heavy rains in the region. Additionally a borehole provides a reliable and affordable source of safe water for the community. From time to time, depending on the availability of funds, 150 school-going Orphans and Vulnerable Children get a free lunch at the centre in order to improve their concentration and school performance. The centre’s facilities have been modified to accommodate physically disabled participants hence its doors are open to such people.
