Mission Statement

To create a space for everyone to work towards their dreams and to empower, assist and enable them through exposure and informed decision making to choose and reach their goals and lifestyle without being forced into any practice they don’t want to engage in. To eradicate poverty in a self-sufficient way through education.

Description

We are a community based organization based in Northern Kenya. We are offering volunteering opportunities with school children, non-school going children, as well as morans and others. The foundation has various programmes consisting of an "Informal Education/Advisory Programme", a "School Programme", a "Business Programme" and a "Community Building Projects Programme". The first involves health, life skills, literacy etc. advise, whereas the second is based at New Dawn Primary School which has a huge lack of teachers, classrooms and resources. It also addresses issues like parents’ ignorance and tries to bring those who are in the bush looking after goats back to school. We work in a culture-preserving sustainable way.
This is one of the few volunteering opportunities based in Northern Kenya where cultural beliefs and practices are still very much alive, within pastoral communities (Rendille), and you will get to live within, experience and see people wearing a lot of beadwork and manyattas all around the clock. On top, the project is located just around a Game Reserve with lots of animals like lions, elephants, antelopes etc.
