Werk

Nature of Work: Volunteers placed in this project will be involved in the following activities: • Medical work in the dispensary such as registration of patients, giving out patients following the doctors’ description, observation and noting the progress of every patient, and cleanliness at the hospital. • Family planning services, immunization, maternal and child health are some of the services offered at the project • The volunteers will also be involved in awareness creation in the community to promote the sustainability of the livelihood among community members both in community forums and also in local schools. Moreover, volunteers placed in this project will engage the community members in a study topic: focus on public health and sanitation especially in the local schools to be able to develop a young generation that is equipped with information. Hence volunteers will be expected to work hand in hand with the hospital management to realize the goals of the placement in this project and thus enhance the capacity of the health facility. • The volunteers will be assigned duties in the health facility by professional staff • Volunteers will be assigned duties in the health facility by professional staff • Cultural days for various nationalities • Home visits and topical discussion with the local people on thematic focus of the project • Excursion to Lake Victoria in Kisumu and Kakamega Rain Forest

Accommodatie en maaltijden

• Volunteers will stay in a house provided by the local community with very modest living conditions. • Volunteers should bring sleeping bags and mats and have an obligation to climb down the level of the people with the aim of exposure to development challenges. • KVDA will provide foodstuffs and volunteers will cook their own meals in turns. • Water is available from springs and it is recommended that drinking water should be boiled or medicated. Mineral water available at supermarkets is also recommended. • There is electricity connection at both the accommodation and health center so volunteers can charge electrical appliances. • Furthermore, we invite you to bring typical food, spices, drinks, games and music from your country (for an intercultural evening) – and a lot of motivation! LANGUAGE: English

Locatie en vrije tijd

Volunteers will have the opportunity for excursions: • There are possibilities for group excursions during the work camp and especially over the weekends and these will be done at an extra cost borne by the volunteer. • Such excursions should be organized in consultation with the community leaders and the KVDA project facilitator will play a key role. • It should also be noted that majority of Kenyan volunteers are either students or youths out of school and may not have money for such excursions and volunteers from other nations have no obligation to pay for those who do not have money. • This issue should be handled with care so as to avoid possible conflict that would be injurious to harmonious relations among volunteers. • National Heritage: Kenya is a home of the 8 wonders of the world synonymous with the unique phenomenon that happens once a year with the migration of the wild beast from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania through the Mara River to Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. Likewise, Shimba Hills National Reserve at the Coast of Kenya offers variety of wild animals that include Giraffes, Impala, Warthog, Baboons, Sykes monkeys, Sable Antelope, Elephants e.t.c. The volunteers have the possibility of visiting Lake Victoria, Kakamega forest, the famous crying stone and Kogelo village that is the birthplace of the father of the current USA President Barrack Obama situated 70 Kms away from the project site.

Opmerkingen

REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH EDUCATION, PROMOTION OF GENDER EQUALITY AND WOMEN EMPOWERMENT • Gender equality implies a society in which women and men enjoy the same opportunities, outcomes, rights and obligations in all spheres of life. Equality between men and women exists when both sexes are able to share equally in the distribution of power and influence; have equal opportunities for financial independence through work or through setting up businesses; enjoy equal access to education and the opportunity to develop personal ambitions. • A critical aspect of promoting gender equality is the empowerment of women, with a focus on identifying and redressing power imbalances and giving women more autonomy to manage their own lives. Women's empowerment is vital to sustainable development and the realization of human rights for all. • The project aims to empower the women to actively continue with the struggle to enhance their capacities and ultimately take the lead in community development. This takes cognizance of the fact that despite being overrun by pro-men cultural foundations, women remain the pillar of families and the most vulnerable gender in the current societal set-up.
