Different cultural communities in Kenya have different beliefs and practices towards women, girls and or boy child. Some of these practices lack inclusivity on important matters like education, inheritance and many other social matters. In some communities, they still hold the native beliefs that a girl child is not to be educated for reasons well known to themselves while others say the boy child is not to be educated and he therefore should be a herdsman all his life to look after cattle. all these practices eventually leaves these individuals feeling sidelined and some choose to run away from their homes to look for wellwishers who can take them to school. Others run away because of forced marriages or even forced female genital mutilations (F.G.M's). These women therefore need psychological as well as practical help. Some of them have come together to campaign against these vices while others have their own projects that require empowerment and and or counselling. Training on hygiene too especially on menstrual hygiene on women and training on abstinence for both Women, Girl and Boychild untill they are of age different from these cultural beliefs. Women are trained to be self sufficient, driven and bold enough to stand against these vices. Incase of those with projects, they are helped to market their products locally and international. In this program, volunteers are free to assist women and girls with sanitary towels or any other thing they may deem fit to uplift these groups with. The program requires an additional $100 to cater for placement logistics.

Description

Salire Afrika Volunteers is a platform established in January 2020, and is located in Nanyuki which is one of the busiest tourist destinations in Kenya. Nanyuki,a town northwards of Nairobi,borrows its name from the Maasai community,its earliest inhabitants. (meaning 'place of red water' in the Masai language) .It is situated just north of the Equator, and at an elevation of 1,947m above sea-level, is the 14th highest town in Africa. Indeed,it is home to Africa's 2nd highest peak at MOUNT KENYA. The town is strategically sitting on one of the longitudinal imaginary lines, the EQUATOR! As Salire is Italian for Soar, Salire Afrika gives you an opportunity to soar Afrika on the wings of charity and adventure. We aim to create opportunities for volunteers across the world who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of indigenous and local communities living in Kenya! The volunteers' primary destination will be our volunteer houses from where they will be matched to their specific programs and placements either in teaching, youth and sports, child care, special needs, nature conservancies, medical outreach, animal welfare,women and girl/ boy child empowerment. These placements spread across town and its outskirts.
