Werk

• Patrols with game rangers inside the wildlife conservancy within the renowned Maasai Mara Game Reserve • Interaction with the local community that is predominantly made up on the Maasai community revered for their staunch reverence of cultural heritage. • Work at the local health center aimed at provision of health services to the local population.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

• Volunteers will stay in a homestead provided by the local people with very 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

• Environmental management and rehabilitation strategies are essential in Kenya, as 70 percent of the country’s workers are employed in agriculture. In addition to this, ecotourism makes up nearly 20 percent of the country’s GDP. • Despite Kenya’s economic reliance on environmental health, 80 percent of the country’s land is arid or semi-arid. Only a small percentage of land is suitable for growing crops, and even these fertile areas are fragile. With poor agricultural management, the top soil is easily washed away. • Kenya’s poorest are the most likely to live in arid regions. Poverty cyclically increases with the scarcity of productive soil, clean water, effective sanitation and market opportunities. Without these critical resources, the poor are unable to improve their livelihoods. • Environmental conservation in Kenya is key to its development. While enforcing conservation is challenging due to population pressures, raising public awareness of environmental issues could also raise support for such measures. • As smallholder farmers seek arable land, they encroach on Kenya’s indigenous forests. Because of Kenya’s richness in non-timber forest products such as medicinal plants, essential oils and beeswax, the destruction of its forests harms both its wildlife and its economy. Conserving the forests is pivotal to protecting both Kenya’s resources and its 50 endangered species. • The beautiful mangrove forests and coral reefs that line Kenya’s Indian Ocean border are also a substantial form of revenue for the country, providing both ecotourism destinations and ecosystem services. • To further promote the ecological perspective of Kenya’s government, the Nature Conservancy and the Northern Rangelands Trust have collaborated to develop community conservancies in the northern semi-arid grasslands. • These conservancies cover 3 million hectares, within which over 200,000 people from 17 different ethnic tribes reside. They strive to help Kenyan communities engage in environmental conservation.
