This is purely a family farm which involves working in our family farm where we have poultry, we grow vegetables in our garden for family use and our garden also acts as a demonstration garden for learning. In our farm we have chickens, Ducks, Turkey, Goose, Rabbits, Ornamental birds like Guinea Fowl(white and dotted) and we are planning to introduce pig as well. The main tasks here is to make sure that both Rabbits and poultry are fed and their cages are kept clean, drinkers are cleaned on a daily basis, you will as well ensure that poultry are vaccinated as scheduled and clean drinking water is provided to them all the time. Workawayers will as well work in the family garden, helping in planting, weeding, and watering the garden.
Since we are also working with HIV positive Women in a sewing cooperative, Volunteers will be as well requested to participate in the project and can work with women and assist in cutting fabrics, teach financial literacy and business management, book keeping, simple accounting, marketing & saving, basic computer skills(Excel, word) and online marketing, social media marketing. We are also hoping that volunteers can help in managing our social media accounts by creating contents to be posted on facebook/instagram at least twice a week; this can be through graphic designs etc with the main objective of keeping our social media active and lively.
We would as well appreciate to host volunteers who has experience in online fundraising and has experience in writing successful grant proposals.

I am interested to learn other languages and will as well teach my guests local languages.
In most cases, if we have one volunteer s/he will have private room with running water and warm shower but this room can be shared if we have more than one volunteer as it can accommodate up to four volunteers sharing but with their own beds. We will provide two meals per day and that is coffee in the morning and dinner. Volunteers are as well free to prepare their own meals.
Our home is directly facing the famous Monkey Rock which volunteers can easily access for hiking, apart from that being that our home is just within Kisumu, volunteers can easily walk around the City and visit places like Dunga Hill Camp, Hippo Point, Bird Watching in the lake, Boat rides, a visit to Impala Park, Kit Mikai Rock, Kakamega Forest which is just one hour drive from Kisumu and we can as well arrange a trip to The Maasai Mara National Park.
