ARRIVAL AT THE AIRPORT
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
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 Naivasha, Hells Gate, which is about a 1-hour drive from the project.

SAFARI OPTION
CIVS organizes safaris to all the spectacular National Parks and touristic sites in Kenya, with the main attraction being Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Volunteers who wish to go on a safari should apply at least two weeks before arrival to enable us to make proper arrangements. The fee charged is all-inclusive of meals, transport, park entry, accommodation and tour guiding.
Safari dates: 09th – 11th August 2020

Charges: 3-day Safari to Maasai Mara National Park, 340 Euro

People with mental disabilities in Kenya (approximately 2.9 million) face special challenges in their lives. Many Kenyans still associate people who have mental disabilities with witchcraft, and little has been done to combat this stigmatization. Most people with mental disability have a mild to moderate mental retardation. However, they can learn and are capable of developing skills throughout their lives. They have a wide range of talents, which can possibly be discovered at any moment in their childhood. The major shortcomings of the current educational system for (young) adults with mental disabilities is that they are too old to be enrolled in a primary school, but mentally incapable of attending a normal secondary school. Because of that, the Marianne Centre Foundation, started in the year 2010, focuses on people with mild to moderate mental disabilities, varying from Down Syndrome to Autism, from the age of 16 to 35 years. The training centre for this group has given them and their parents hope for a better future. Currently, the centre has 38 students. The students are divided into classes according to their abilities. The (young) adults are trained in basic life skills, vocational and income generating activities. At the end of the training, their capabilities are assessed and efforts are made for them to be attached to an employer where they get the possibility to perform basic tasks.
The idea of this project is to make a difference in the life of young adults with special needs and disabilities, by making them self-reliant and by easing their integration into mainstream life without fear of stigmatization.
