The reservation fee payed by the volunteers will go along way supporting very needy women who have dropped out of school due to poverty and who belong to our community HIV/aids support groups.
This is because we believe in the power of the volunteers donating resources to support community development activities.
THE MONEY GOES DIRECTLY TO THE BENEFICIARIES.

We are kindly in need of volunteers with different skills to assist our organization in logo and graphic design, document translation research, accounting assistance, fundraising and grant wring to increase our capacity and skills the relevant areas where the capacity and skills are limited.
The project has activities in different locations and that means that the volunteers will have the chance to move a lot and interact with the communities under the guidance of the project staffs.
Our community organization is working very hard to make sure that the effects of HIV/aids are mitigated properly in the communities.
Through the wider community project teams the organization will working very closely with the community volunteers who will be visiting schools & learning centers .
The purpose of this is to make sure that the community gets the relevant information that is required by the community.
It is very challenging that poverty is very high pushing the children and the youth who would be students to dropped out of school.
The project is is taking very seriously the food security project with a view to have more food for the support groups in our programs.
Our future plans is to establish community reading centers where the needy come and get books to read then go back to the village.
Some of the shortcomings that we have been experiencing indicates that lack of resources is a big impediment that needs to be addressed for the prosperity of our planned programs.
Our project coverage area is wide considering the scope of our work presently we are present in the two counties where our youth groups are located.
So a times when we have visitors its needful to have a car or a bus depending on the number involved.
We are planing that in future we will have many community education centers that will take care of the children and the youths who need to have education and get involved in community development matters .
This is because most of them just roam in the village and this is not good in that they will take the opportunity to get involve in crimes and drug abuse .
Our project is located in the eastern side of the continent of Africa & is found within the eastern African states along the equator.
we borders Uganda & Tanzania. The project locations can reached internal mode of transport is road & railway and air planes.
