“Strive for Excellence”
AGE: Volunteers have to be at least 18 years old to participate in the work camp. There is no upper age limit
The school was started with the aim of having members of the community have access to education and more so the girl child. In this community, differences between man and woman dictate a difference in their social roles and this reinforces a notion that men are more superior to women. Capacity building will provide both men and women with political insight and moral support in confronting gender issues. A woman’s social status has led to marginalization. This was the very reason of starting the school so as to empower the girl child.
The project involves different types of activities. These include:
TYPE OF WORK CAMP: MANU/EDU
Volunteers will work for six hours daily from Monday to Friday.

PROJECT PARTICIPANTS: Maximum 20 volunteers from Kenya and the international community
