Support for orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya
Please visit the new page to apply.
Recruiting Organization: CADIP
The volunteers will work together with a community development group based in Mumias district in the Western Province of Kenya. The group was formed with the aim to improve the educational standards of the orphans and vulnerable children in the community, so that they would be able to take care of themselves. The group is running a local orphanage school, which is visited by 10 orphans and 16 widows. The orphans and widows are being supported through the sales of maize produced from the group's small farm. This caters for the orphans’ basic needs i.e. food, clothing and shelter. The main purpose of the group is to mobilize the community and self-help groups to participate in grassroots efforts in poverty eradication.
