• Teaching Mathematics, English & Social studies • Sports & games activities • Community meetings participation • Community development • Identifying weak students and focusing on their potential strengths • Assisting the head teacher in admin work

Accommodatie en maaltijden

• Volunteers will stay in a house provided by the local community with basic living conditions. Volunteers 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. • The Government policy to install ICT in primary schools has seen connectivity to the national power grid for most educational institutions in Kenya and this makes it easy for volunteers to use electric appliances while at the project. • 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!

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

THEME: HIV Stigma and discrimination in Kenya • Even though awareness of HIV and AIDS in Kenya is high, many people living with the virus still face stigma and discrimination. Studies have shown that although people are aware of the basic facts about HIV and AIDS, many are not informed of the most in-depth knowledge that addresses issue of stigma. • One report revealed that of healthcare facilities that have policies to protect people living with HIV against discrimination, only a third admitted to implementing such policies. People are still afraid to disclose their status and will often avoid health centers that provide HIV services from fear of being seen by neighbours or community members. • Homosexuality is illegal in Kenya and therefore men who have sex with men face a high level of stigma and discrimination. In an attempt to find out to what extend HIV is affecting the gay community, a census for homosexuals would be the most effective methodology but with homosexual still illegal, it is unlikely to have the statistics to reflect the reality of HIV within the gay and lesbian community. • Poverty is a major issue in the local community and is directly linked to the spread of HIV/AIDS because poverty drives HIV/AIDS and HIV/AIDS drives poverty. This highlights the need for a multifaceted response to both problems, but particularly to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. • Both these problems disproportionately affect women and youth. The goal is to try and enable the local members address community issues, thus enhancing the economic and social empowerment of women and youth for poverty reduction in Gideon Mosi, and linking this with activities to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS. These activities will also help strengthen rural community and their local economies. In the process being able to improve access to quality education for school children • The volunteers will be required to join hands together with community members in addressing the theme of the camp in order to empower the community to coming up with a more pro-active way of enhancing the academic development of community children.
