Volunteer in the Eastern region of Kenya and work with physically handicapped children in Kyale Small Home. This is a school and a home that was established in 1994. A primary school and Catholic Church surround this home, which currently houses 21 children. These kids are boys and girls aged between 10 to 19 years. These children have suffered accidents, handicaps from or during birth, snakebites, and polio among other disabilities. This home was established to cater for the challenged children within the local community. Every child is entitled to better care and upbringing. In most Kenyan societies, the physically challenged children get stigmatization from other members of the community making them feel less than human. Most people speak Kikamba as a native language. Farming is widely practiced for a living e.g. livestock poultry, small-scale farming of maize, beans, coffee, sweet potatoes, bananas, and vegetables. Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, may be seen from the home.
CIVS Kenya is a community development agency operating especially in the marginalized and poverty-stricken rural areas of Kenya. We pursue an integrated socio-economic and cultural development approach in the fight against poverty and social exclusion of Kenyan communities under the maxim “development by people”. We believe that people should retain the responsibility for their own development while CIVS supports, guides and mentors their efforts with innovative and customized high quality services. CIVS achieves this aims through its two program areas: International Voluntary Service (IVS) and Community Development.
