Being a new project, the Luanda Community Empowerment Project is a local development initiative that aims to improve the well-being of the people. The project is located along the Kisumu Busia Road, 29 Kilometers from Kisumu City. The project is welcoming volunteers to learn about the local culture, live with the people, and interact and work with them. The project is based in the heart of the Luhya community, in Bunyore, and gives you a chance to explore western Kenya.

The project aims to empower the community to realize their potential through local initiatives like farming, brick making, environment conservation, community banking, childcare, informal education, and health and sanitation programs. The project region has a higher poverty level with the majority of residents engaging in small-scale crop farming and rearing of livestock and chicken at their small farms. Youth unemployment is on the rise with the diminishing opportunities for formal employment. This has led to a high dependency ratio and the inability of the few employed people to save and invest. Cases of drug abuse and insecurity associated with youth unemployment are on the rise.
Uneconomical sub-division of land, Poor land use system and ragged terrain are some of the factors for environmental degradation. Encroachment of wetlands and forest lands by the growing population has led to declining water volumes in existing water sources. Inadequate farming skills and small land sizes have affected agricultural production. Limited credit facilities, idleness among the youth, poor infrastructure, and poor implementation of pro-poor programs and projects are some of the notable challenges facing the community. Girls have higher school enrolment than boys because boys engage in manual jobs like tea picking, herding cattle, motorbike transportation and farm labour.

As a volunteer, you will provide invaluable assistance to the community and in return the warmth and affection of the community will for sure put a smile on your face. You will experience happy moments with the people, gain an understanding of what life is like in western Kenya and make a real difference in the local community, and along the way you will make lots of new friends. Right at the equator line, you will interact with nature, have a nice view of Bunyore hills and valleys characterized by huge granite rocks and caves.

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