We work to empower rural poor communities through basic primary education, health, skills training and environmental conservation.
We are interested in partnership with international volunteers for short as well as long term service in the following areas:
- Volunteer teachers and administrators at our community primary school and college.
- Childcare trainer and child protection policy making.
- Healthcare (community disease preventative health education).
- Construction of our community schools.
- Sports for rural youth.
- Rural women group empowerment projects.
The setup and environment for our projects is within the beautiful African rural setup, where the volunteers will be in contact with the wonderful and naturally hospitable people. Very simple life, so organic with natural food and fresh environment. The volunteer/volunteers will encounter the African cultural heritage to its excellence. Moreover, sharing and linking us with their wonderful cultural heritage and values.
Lunch and break tea is provided at work.
Fee for all expenses of the volunteer can be paid at once.
We provide an ecotourism experiences with a truly African village touch. We organize an African home experience over the weekends.

We have established and run the following projects:

2. Mama Sabina Rural Community Health Center . This focuses on rural maternal child health care services.
3. Van Merode College of Applied Science & Technology. This teaches life skills training and empowerment.

However, we are still struggling to have these projects grow and get well-established.
