There are many families in rural Kenya that live under poor housing conditions and many of its local community areas and facilities such as churches, hospitals or schools still need a lot of improvement. To address this concern, this program aims at participants to help improve the living standards of these local people in need by providing support in much needed construction and renovation work by creating proper sanitation facilities, make housing safer places to live and ensure communities have greater authority over their own development initiatives.
Participants will be asked to engage in tasks ranging from light work such as cleaning the area, mixing cement and painting to harder tasks such as building up the wall (plastering) and repairing roofing. Participants will be instructed and supervised closely by our coordinator who has ample experience in construction work to make sure that all the processes are safe for them and the housing conditions are also safe for the local people to live.
Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities.

Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.
