    Descripción

    A community education project based in Western Kenya providing primary school classes. The pupils who attend are split almost evenly between disadvantaged children whose parents have died & fee paying children. Breakfast and lunch are provided free from the school feeding program for the disadvantaged children and can be purchased by fee paying children

    We have a garden in which we grow vegetables and fruit for the school feeding program. Any excess is sold to provide extra funds for the school. The garden produces about half of the food used for the daily meals.

    Mainly we are looking for volunteers who can commit to at least 4 weeks and can help us with any of the following:

    Education
    Trained teachers who can teach classes or others who can help the current school teachers.
    School is closed April, August and December.

    Book Keeping
    We would like people who can help train our administrator in good book keeping practices.

    Gardening
    Our garden is 1.2 acres and is currently managed by only one gardener so people with good gardening knowledge who can educate us and help us improve our garden would be very welcome.

    Bakery
    We have a charcoal oven (photo below) which we are unable to use at present so we would love to find someone who can teach us how to use the oven and how to make our own bakery products. Some would be used to feed the school children and the excess sold for school funds.

    Resource Center
    We have just been donated 4 laptops and a modem. We would like help in training a couple of local people so they can then go on to train others in general computer use, word processing & report writing, email and book keeping.

    Alojamiento

    A small room with a bed and mosquito net is provided in the family home. Meals and clean treated water are also provided but we request if volunteers want bottled water they need to buy their own. Bottled drinking water is available relatively cheaply in the nearby town of Mbita

    The house is 30mins walking or 5mins by motorbike taxi (picky-picky) from Mbita and the school. The garden is 5mins walk from the house.

    There are 2 ways to reach Mbita.
    1. To Homa Bay then by (very squashed) shared car to Mbita
    2. To Kisumu then by minibus (called Matatus) and ferry to Mbita.

    There are direct buses to Homa Bay and Kisumu from Nairobi and direct minibuses (Matatu) & flights to Kisumu from Nairobi.
