Esikoma Community Health Project was established by the Esikoma Community Health Self
Help Group, which has been in existence since 2016. The project has constructed a community
hospital which is now offering health services to local community since November 2022. The
hospital comprises of doctor’s consultation rooms, pharmacy, patients waiting bay and
temporary wards. More facilities are still under construction.

The Self Help Group is comprised of volunteers operating within Busia County, with the mission
of spearheading implementation of community health, environmental projects and
development programs. The group focuses on Health and community development and other
health related issues. The group received training on HIV/AIDS prevention, VCT Counseling,
Community mobilization, and home based care giving and education from the German
foundation for world population.

During the period, the trainees realized that there was a big health problem in their
community. Apart from HIV/AIDS as the main problem, there were more health issues such as
an increase number of orphans/ vulnerable children, and jiggers menace as a result of parents’
death from HIV/AIDS. Most orphans were infected by jiggers, this was as a result of parental
and guardian poor care. In general such children lack basic needs such as health care, shelter,
education, and clothing among others.

Having realized all these problems within the community, the Community Health Volunteers
decided to establish a group and named it as Esikoma Community Health Volunteers (ECHV).
The group is engaging in activities like providing medical services, Jiggers eradication program,
creating tree nurseries and planting trees, Health Education in local schools and Distribution of
sanitary pads to schools. The profit generated from selling of the trees is channeled to the
hospital project.

Aangezien je in dit project met kinderen gaat werken, stellen wij het verplicht om een VOG (Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag) aan te vragen.
