Kenya Volunteer Travel

Tour and Safaris
Volunteering is quite intensive and volunteers are advised to take short breaks during their volunteer time to do sightseeing e.g. kit-mikai, Traditional home set up, Boat-Riding etc. Kenya is the most beautiful country with lots of adventures and landscape one would want to explore before returning home. For low cost tours we recommend http://www.africahomeadventure.com that can always be helpful in organizing safari packages in both Kenya & Tanzania at affordable rates. It is affiliated with the Enchoro Wildlife Camp Masai Mara http://www.enchorowildlifecamp.com which caters for budget accommodation for travelers and 5% of the company proceeds goes along to support our development programs in western Kenya.

Accommodation and Meals
The accommodations in each village vary . Volunteers can stay with host families, rented rooms hostel/hotel or at the community resource center. There are provisions for beds, mattresses bed sheets and mosquito nets. The bathroom facilities range from pit latrines to flush toilets. Bathing may consist of either a bucket or a basin of water.

Kenyan villages rely on a simple, largely vegetarian diet. A national dish called Ugali, which is cornmeal cooked with water and flour either maize or millet to a consistency like thick mashed potatoes. Beans, rice, potatoes, and green vegetables (e.g., kale's) are also important to the African diet. Sometimes, meat from goats, chicken, or cows are included. You may find fish near Lake Victoria. Fresh fruit (e.g., banana, watermelon, pineapple, mango -- depending on the season) are abundant as well.

The organization will very soon have electricity at the Centre in Wagusu with the support of Amanda Parkins and the 14th and Chestnut Community Center.  Amanda has been volunteering with us as a program coordinator for the past one month and has a passion and a heart to make a difference by seeking donations from her organization back home in the US state of Indiana towards electricity installation. 
Hear her out…
I have been blessed to be able to come to Kenya and work with a great group of people!  I can see that their hearts are in the right place, and the work they are doing is going to make a difference in this community.  It is exciting that I am able to be a part of it in a few small ways.  I encourage anyone and everyone to come visit the organization and support the work they are doing to improve the lives of so many. 

 

Our environment is our great concern and we have been able to send a message to the community by planting trees at the Centre.  Dean Antony Sparrow, Martin, Wilfred, Jacky, Amanda, Millicent, and Charlie each planted a tree along the perimeter of the property.  Their involvement and participation have made a big difference to make our environment green.  Many flowers have also been planted

Shangilia day care children can now write on tables.  This was achieved by donations from Olivia, Franki, and Emily who volunteered with us for two weeks in May 2010.  They also donated playing toys and painted the children’s playing ground.

African Child Day‚ÄĒ16/6/2010

            In partnership with the Wayo Child Project, Home Adventure participated in this important occasion at Usigu/Majengo Primary School to commemorate the brutally massacred seven hundred innocent African children in Sowato, South Africa.

This day reminds us of the great task that is with and ahead of us as parents and caretakers.  Children are the future, and need to be taken care of now so that they will grow into healthy, happy, responsible adults.

Shangilia day care children from our Centre presented a poem entitled ‚ÄúNursery‚ÄĚ.
