Volunteers have a trust based total freedom of doing whatever they want and visiting all the places they would want to, they will visit our rich shrines and see for themselves some of the tools, utensils, vessels and Caves used by our great grandparents.

1) Volunteers Working with us will relax and participate in any manual work at their own wish.

they will acquire several educational opportunities including visit Local fishing industries, our local organic and perm-cultre farms and interact with Local fishermen and farmers for more information. They will learn practically everything they would want to learn during their stay.

Welcome to Mfangano Island. As a volunteer we value you and you are so precious to our organization. My name is WINNY the director of a community based organization in Mfangano Island. Description of the organization: A community education project based in Western Kenya providing primary school classes. The pupils who attend are split almost evenly between disadvantaged children whose parents have died & fee paying children. Breakfast and lunch are provided free from the school feeding program for the disadvantaged children and can be purchased by fee paying children We have a garden in which we grow vegetables and fruit for the school feeding program. Any excess is sold to provide extra funds for the school. The garden produces about half of the food used for the daily meals. Food and accommodation: Some meals provided Accommodation provided Vegetarian food can be provided. Vegan food can be provided. A small room with a bed and mosquito net is provided in the family home. Meals and clean treated water are also provided but we request if volunteers want bottled water they need to buy their own. Bottled drinking water is available relatively cheaply in the nearby town . For the foods the volunteers will eat the food the host family are eating. Types of food found here are fish, vegetables, rice, beans beef etc. Looking for help with: Agriculture Alternative technologies Building maintenance/construction Caring for people Clerical/office work Cooking Eco-tourism Education Information technology Mainly we are looking for volunteers who can commit to at least 4 weeks and can help us with any of the following: Education Trained teachers who can teach classes or others who can help the current school teachers.
