Description of organisation:

We are a community based organization based in Northern Kenya. We offer various programmes, an informal education/advisory, a school, a business and a community building projects programme. The first involves health, life skills, literacy etc. advise for school children, non-school going beaded children, as well as morans and others, 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. 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 all around the clock. On top, the project is located just around a Game Reserve with lots of animals like lions, elephants, monkeys and antelopes. $100/wk

General information:

Regarding the school, there are only two teachers, but five classes plus nursary, so your help is urgently needed, be it through classroom teaching or extra tuition. Many class 3 children are not able to read. There are almost no resources. Due to water issues children are forced to eat their food with bare often unwashed hands. We are still in the process of establishing our other projects. We follow a sustainable, culture-preserving approach. Donations are highly appreciated.
