  • Description


    I am Young man cheerful, social and loving individual My name is David and I am working together with community leaders, and our friend David from the international community, together with community of whom we give our services have formalized the specifications for the building of a new and greatly needed resource centre that will provide a focal point for the whole RUSINGA island community but also essential for educational & health training and offer good ground for international exchange programmes i.e internship, work study and research through linkages.

    the centre ,shall be connecting this densely populated rural island to the global community,and is an essential need for the community.
    the centre shall be a full time for work away and volunteers.and be an inclusive centre for exchange. please be one of the change makers, by making it to be our first and second volunteer.

    Initially, we are looking VOLUNTEERS
    across the globe to help us work for a common course,for solicitation of resources .we have drawn up formal plans for the main building with contractors who have given the green light for the project while we are registered with the local authorities as both a charity and for planning permission.

    Its important to note that typically in this part of rural Kenya the local people are almost exclusively subsistence farmers who live day to day on between €0.80c - €1.80. There has been a drought for the past 3 years which is ongoing; Even the smallest support will make a big difference and there is no greater cause than to give this community hope for a better future by volunteering and any kind of support.

    Thank you from all of us on Rusinga Island, Lake Victoria, Kenya
    you can contact:
