ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS
• 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!

Project overview
• Esikoma Community Health Volunteers (ECHV) is a community self-help group established in 2014 by local volunteers operating within Butula Sub County with its main office at Esikoma Market within Marachi central Ward, focusing on Health and community development and other health related issues.
• Having realized all these problems within the community, few members from Butula who were trained, decided to establish a group which could address the above mentioned health issues. The group was then referred to as Esikoma Community Health Volunteers (ECHV).
• Most orphans whose parents died from HIV/AIDS. Were infected by jiggers, this was as a result of parental and guardian poor care. In generals these children lacked basic needs such as health care, shelter, education, and clothing among others.

Group’s objectives

· Take an active role in implementation of community Development programs in Butula
Sub-County.
· To create and promote awareness among the members of the community on sustainable natural resource management.
· To facilitate information generation, sharing and networking amongst all members of the community, and other SHG.
· To establish income generating activities that will sustain and improve the livelihood of the community.
· To support people living with HIV-AIDS to increase access and improve quality of healthcare by providing nutritional supplements.
· To build the capacity of youth on adolescent sexual and reproductive health.

THEME: To Build the Capacity of youth on reproductive health
• 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.
