Accommodatie en maaltijden

ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS • Volunteers will stay in a house 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

EDUCATIONAL TOURS KVDA offers educational tours to spectacular sites including the renowned Maasai Mara Game Reserve at separate fees. Please contact us for specific tour information.

Opmerkingen

THEME: 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. OBJECTIVES • Educate the society on diseases like HIV/AIDS, malaria and health related issues. • To promote environmental activities in schools and public forums. • To perform current Kenyan examination-oriented literature SETBOOKS in high schools like “An Enemy of the people” by Henrik Ibsen, “The River between” by Ngugi wa Thiongo & “Utengano” by Said Mohammed. • To champion for women empowerment and girl child education. • To perform community theatre e.g. human rights, good governance, drug abuse awareness, poverty eradication, and development. • To host and participate in international exchange forums like IDEA WORLD CONGRESSES among others. • To organize international and local training drama workshops/seminars. Project activities • Creative, educational, entertaining and informative plays, comedies, narratives, poems, skits, traditional dances & training workshops • Live performances on Kenyan examination literature set books e.g. “An Enemy of the people” by Henrik Ibsen and “The River between” by Ngugi wa Thiongo in secondary schools in Kenya. • HIV/ Aids awareness program in both learning and non-learning forums. • Running peace building and reconciliation program. • Junior artistes’ program (children drama 6yrs - 15yrs) • International artistes training and attachment program (1 month to 6 months) in Kenya, i.e. we attach performing artistes to our group performing projects between 1 month to 6 months. • Entertainment and educative drama program. • Exchange program with other artistes’ groups to share experiences.
