Werk

Manual work and Intercultural activities: • Social work • Teaching • Playing games (football, netball, volleyball, and hockey). • Creating awareness in conservation. • Keeping and maintaining tree nursery • Guiding visitors in the elerock nature trail • Keeping the school environment clean • Guiding and counseling students.

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.

Organisatie

Project overview • Ng’onzini primary school was started in the year 1964 by the Mwachinga villagers. The main purpose was to bring learning services near the community. The school was built using local materials till the year 2000 when born free foundation came to build seven permanent classrooms and an office. • The school is a government school ran by T.S.C Teachers and P.T.A Teachers. The school has an active Wildlife club which initiated a wildlife area (elerock nature trail) near the school environment. Children are made conversant with conservation activities day by day out. Other clubs include Debate, Choir and Drama. • Apart from the government we have NGOs which do support Ng’onzini School. These include JICA (KEMRI), Plan Kenya, born free Foundation, Camp Kenya. K.W.S also constructed one classroom and the school is managed by committee of parents.

Opmerkingen

THEME: Gender Sensitivity: Girl Child Education • It is common practice for School girls to be forcefully married to elderly men in exchange of dowry and most of the cases involve primary school children. • "It is unfortunate that while other communities are discarding traditions that drag down their socio-economic development, this repugnant cultural practice has refused to die exposing communities to ridicule. It is something that should be stopped because it denies the girl child the right to education." • After realizing that the Kenyan government was taking stringent measures on parents engaging their children in forced marriages, some members of the community often cross into neighboring Tanzania where they perform the marriage rituals before crossing back to Kenya. • The Kenya government has outlawed FGM and its attendant practices and its perpetrators risk being jailed. What makes teenage marriages especially appalling is that it burdens the young girls with responsibilities that they are ill-prepared for. This includes child bearing and the concomitant hustles of taking care of children. • The culture has been a detriment to the girl child and as a result few girls have the urge to continue with their education as they will be married off before they complete their education. • The future of the girl child is therefore threatened and concerted efforts must be made to reverse the worrying trend. • Poverty is a broad-term that describes many circumstances where people lack resources such as money, housing, food, clothing, jobs, and suffer physically, socially, and emotionally from this material deprivation. • Poverty describes a standard of living where a person is unable to afford even a basic diet. International definitions of poverty rely on the classification of the poverty level, which is a level of income below which a person cannot afford to buy all the resources required to live. • Poverty eradication encompasses the will and strategies to stop all people from living in poverty. • The focus will be on education, training and gender sensitivity. Inter cultural exchange is aimed at enabling people to put global awareness and intercultural learning into practice. • This is enhanced through creating awareness through learning themes on global issues. • In so doing it will strengthen participants’ skills in working in community-based organizations actively involved in efforts to alleviate poverty.
