    Our farm is situated next to Lake Victoria. Our volunteers will have a full view of the lake while working as well as swimming. Rusinga Island where we are is also a home of birds, wild animals and tourist attraction sites. From where we are, other islands are just 4 miles away and volunteers have the opportunity to visit other islands during their free time.

    Through our farm we intend to reduce poverty by helping local communities to also start their own farms, while also buying our products and sell them in the local market.

    With our help, rural families are growing their incomes while also protecting their local environment for generations to come.

    For the community outreach programmes, the volunteer can help in one of the following activities

    Child Care: reaching out to the needy children in school (We liaze with two schools - a local Primary school and a Special School for the disabled children) and helping in teaching subjects like Maths, Languages (French, German, Spanish, Portugues, Italiano) as well as visiting them in their respective homes, preparing their profile data and shooting video for documentary.

    Spiritual Counseling within the community school (reaching out to widows and elderly and helping in their homes to do one or more activities available, cleaning the house, cooking, and doing laundry)

    Sports/Talent Training: You help the children in either one or both schools in Sports (Soccer, Music, Drama, Dance etc) to enhance their Talents in these fields.

    Community Development support (Resource mobilization/online fundraising to initiate development project like Clean Water, Child Support, Education support) etc.

    Helping in redesigning and posting more information via our website or facebook pages
