DONATION AND GIFTS:
These are usually symbolic gestures to enhance the solidarity of volunteers and the hosting community. Kindly contact KVDA for details in case you are willing to support a worthy cause in the community either by offering a donation or long-term intervention on the project.
THEME: FOOD SECURITY
• The achievement of national food security is to be a key objective of the agricultural sector. Food security in this case is defined as “ a situation in which all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food which meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life” (Kenya Food Security Steering Group, 2008).
• In the recent years, and especially starting from 2008, the country has been facing severe food insecurity problems. These are depicted by a high proportion of the population having no access to food in the right amounts and quality.
• Official estimates indicate over 10 million people are food insecure with majority of them living on food relief.
• Households are also incurring huge food bills due to the high food prices. Maize being staple food due to the food preferences is in short supply and most households have limited choices of other food stuffs.
• The current food insecurity problems are attributed to several factors, including the frequent droughts in most parts of the country, high costs of domestic food production due to high costs of inputs especially fertilizer, displacement of a large number of farmers in the high potential agricultural areas following the post-election violence which occurred in early 2008, high global food prices and low purchasing power for large proportion of the population due to high level of poverty.

Dos and Don’ts of volunteering
• Do and try learning some basic Kiswahili/local language. Even greeting will be high appreciated.
• Do show an active interest in learning about the life in the community, and be open-minded especially with the cultural difference in the community.
• Do and try to be yourself despite the difference you may have with the community members e.g. going to church etc.
• Do keep promises e.g. visiting someone’s home or family they will be waiting for you and may get disappointed if you fail them.
• Do not make it difficult for future volunteers by giving out a lot of gifts or money. This is not the role of volunteers and we don’t want the community to rely or depend on you and neither should they perceive volunteers in this negative way.
• Always be cautious and nurture true friendship in your endeavour to support the needy.
• Do uphold the principles of volunteerism.
• Do live in accordance with the Laws of Kenya and KVDA regulations
• Do work alongside the local community members/project staffs /institution in the spirit of complementation and co-operation.
• Do not get disappointed if things do not work out, remember change is a gradual process and every bit of impact will go a long way in make a difference for the community.
• Remember it is all about learning from each other and not basically helping the local people.
