    Description

    Our project which is a community organisation was set up to holistically address issues that affect the community more so widows, orphans, vulnerable women and children and the elderly groups.
    Hence our core goal is to build a society where empowered widows, orphans, vulnerable women and children and other marginalised groups can communicate their ideas, exhibit their potential and take action to change their lives, their communities and country at large.
    In order to embrace the above the organisation takes on a number of activities;
     Widows/women empowerment program and support through saving scheme initiatives.
     Poverty eradication programs.
     Girl child education campaign.
     Health education
     Elderly support program
     Climate change campaigns. Etc
    This is possible as the organisation coordinates with a well organised groups of widows, youth, elders and community leaders who are part of creating a community driven approach to develop sustainable programs necessary for a self sufficient and health community.

    Health care and Education: Volunteers can help provide treatment and health care if qualified in that field,then also educate the kids and communities on general health aspects,public health, STDs,and others.
    Teaching: Volunteers also can teach at local schools a signed to by the hosting project, where English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Creative Arts are taught. Volunteers may also train children in sports activities like football, netball and other outdoor activities.
    Building: Currently we are in the process of building a children's playground, a fence and a library for the school, but we are lacking expertise. If any volunteers are willing to help, our community would be greatly appreciative.
    Training local farmers on modern agricultural methods: Because of the change in weather patterns, many of the local crops, which provide income for the families, have been dying or not growing well. Volunteers are asked to plant trees and other crops such as maize and beans, etc in the school gardens.

    Eco protection project: Environmental conservation and protection has been and is still one of the major challenges the World over. The green world has been attacked by both natural and artificial encroachers leading to dangerous climate changes some of which have resulted in deadly disasters. There is no rubbish collection system, and thus pollution is spoiling the natural environment and destroying the growing potential of the food crops. Volunteers may participate in this project by cleaning up the polluted areas and installing rubbish bins.

    Computers / internet teaching and guidance: Most of the students at these schools have never used a computer before, however these computer literacy skills are essential for future use in higher education and in their careers, as well as their everyday life. It is appreciated if volunteers can set up computer literacy lessons at Secondary school.
