Support for orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya

Save to Favorites


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.

Volunteer activities:

• Farm work which involves weeding, digging and planting maize, beans and vegetables

• Brick making for the construction of a school

• Exchange programs and debates in school

• Teaching Mathematics, English, Science, Social studies

• Engaging in sports activities as well as playing with the children

Project dates: November 6 - November 23, 2022
