Light is a very essential utility that we should all enjoy fully without any inconvenience. Back in the rural villages at the Masai homesteads light is a very crucial issue. Only know of the natural light from the sun and moon at night.
Mostly this project is undertaken during the special project application on short term breaks by volunteers back in their homes and would like to have a short programe with a great impact.
This is a very interesting project most volunteers like to take part in. This project is basically in comparison to your small pet back at home. It’s different though, because now the animals are different. We have the Dairy farm volunteer project and the wild animals project.
At the Dairy farm, volunteers not only get to volunteer but get also to learn of the different domesticated animals and how to keep them.
Volunteers on the Childcare project in Kenya are placed in a range of orphanages and childcare centers, some of which house and foster abandoned and orphaned children, some that have schools attached, and others where volunteers live at the centers full time.
Each center accommodates children of differing ages; however, volunteers generally work with children between the ages of 1 to 16 years old.
Crafts is all about creativity. Be creative in any idea on the table of colors, crayons and art paper. Children like it most when they are engaged in coloring and drawing. It’s an activity that keeps their minds in an active state of mind. If you also want them to understand clearly just engage them in a drawing.
Get them paint boxes, colors, crayons and art books from the store and they will enjoy your project. Painting on the walls makes them remember you more.
Music is a universal language and spans all corners of the globe. On the Music project you will provide students with a basic understanding of musical theory, as well as instrument and vocal training.
The music project is mainly run after school and therefore you may be required to teach other classes during the day such as Math, English and Social Sciences.
Please note that if you apply for the Music project during the school holidays (April, August, November and December), you will be placed on another project in Kenya, such as Childcare Work, for the duration of the holidays.
At the Mji wa Huruma center we have the old category of people that have grown really old and can no longer be accommodated in their homes due to less care that can be offered to them while there but can be at best be looked after here at the Old Age Home. Here we have people of the age 70-90years.We basically offer a helping hand to the social workers on the care for all this people that require attention from them 24hrs a day.
The Sports Education project is designed for volunteers who have passion for sports and wish to work with children in schools, but would prefer not to spend all their time teaching in a classroom. On the Sports Education project you will help to broaden the children’s knowledge of sports, teach foreign sports, and educate the children on general fitness, health and wellbeing.
While football/soccer is extremely popular in Africa, many volunteers have found it rewarding to teach the children other sports from their home countries, such as baseball, lacrosse, basketball, cricket, Ping-Pong, Tae kwondo and rugby.
On the Teaching project in Kenya you may be placed in either urban or rural schools, where the presence of volunteers is beneficial in opening the minds and broadening the horizons of students, along with exposing them to native (or fluent) English or Chinese. On this project you will be placed in community schools or government schools, and assist local teachers with daily classes in Math, English, Science, Social Studies, Art and Physical Education.
