Volunteer in Health Care Provision.

Program Location: Kiaritha-ini Hospital Karatina Nyeri District. This volunteer program is designed to suite those volunteers who wish to assist in the health care giving mostly in small local community health care “Health Care Centers’ in Kenya. Health Care Volunteer program in Kenya manages health projects to medical students or professionals. Participating in a health care volunteer project opens tremendous opportunities for volunteers to experience new opportunities in their lives and careers, allow volunteers to immerse themselves in another culture, and provide a positive contribution to the community where health care volunteers are needed. Opportunities are available in a number of rural health centers in Kenya. Volunteers will provide health education, assist doctors, or help provide medical treatment to patients. While working on this project, volunteers will share knowledge, time, skills and talents with the health care staff of the centers. Volunteers in the health care project will also engage in some of the vital activities of medical treatment such as dressing wounds, taking patients' histories, counseling patients, providing assurance and moral support to patients' families, and disbursing medicines. While working in this project you will become highly involved with the needs of the medical field, where each of the health centers get several patients in a day.

What will I do? Volunteer projects are as varied as you might imagine, generally volunteer experiences fall into four main arenas. 1 Community Development. Placements rebuilding a school, setting up a water treatment facility or dig a bore hole, cleaning the streets, planting trees or helping the aged. 2 Education. Teaching placements or acting as a teaching assistant in a local school or kindergarten or in an adult education program. 3 Eco-Environment work. Placement might be in a wildlife reserve or National parks, monitoring endangered species like rhinos, elephants or working in a reforestation project. 4 Social Welfare. Working with underprivileged children, womens co-op groups, working in a hospital or orphanage. How do I get started? Start with your homework, research for existing volunteer programs, if you have questions about the quality of the program ask for assistance from the organizations or visit the online resourse and references. NB. Volunteers never go to teach people on the western ways or culture, nor are they there to save the people. Volunteers go to share their energy and time with the people to experience their culture first hand and to grow themselves.

Other Activities Programs.

Our programs provide a volunteer service that creates opportunities for people from all over the world giving them the chance to change their lives and the lives of people they help. We are also setting up sustainable community development projects to protect the environment and to provide basic education, leadership training and life skills for vulnerable groups.

Environment Education.
We are building an information bank about environment and global climate change issues in order to improve awareness of young people and community participation.

Education.
Education is fundamental to human progress, enabling individuals and communities to acquire skills and knowledge essential for improving their quality of life. But for vulnerable groups like disadvantaged children (orphans) and rural teenagers access to basic education is limited.

Community Development.
We have many field based volunteer positions working with community groups in low income urban neighborhoods and rural areas.

Training for Youth.
Due to disadvantages and many life challenges youth encounter, they need to confront and overcome these challenges in their lives and deal with conflict and decision making sometimes on their own. Volunteers can participate or contribute to the project upkeep.

Program No 2 /Teach/Eng/10

Teaching English Program.
Rural schools around Mt Kenya region in Kenya lack English teachers and the demand for English-speaking teachers is very high in this market. To fill this gap, your volunteer contribution in teaching English would be highly appreciated. Majority of Kenyans wish to increase the English speaking and writing skills for their children. Volunteers in this project are warmly welcome to teach English in Kenya, as it is very challenging; however, our knowledgeable staff will provide you with a proper orientation and teaching materials, including a textbook for the class. Most of the students where we place volunteers already understand Basic English. You will be teaching a group of about 20-45 in a class. We can place volunteers in a number of postings from formal to informal English programs in Kenya. Besides teaching the English class, you can put your English skills to use with oral practice, games, or teaching math, social science, health science or other subjects.

If you want to use your free time to explore and discover rural Kenya, please talk to our co-coordinator and you will be helped to plan and enjoy your explorations accompanied by the local volunteers or students. Teach English and explore the wonders of East Africa.
