Project overview Newstar Drama Group was founded in 1993 at Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (K.I.M.C) Nairobi and was registered in 1996 by the Ministry of Culture and Social Services. The Group moved its operational base from Nairobi to Kisii town at Kisii culture centre; in Southern Nyanza region of Kenya which it operates its programs up to date. The group is a travelling theatre group that has performed in many secondary schools, universities, Kenya National Theatre, Colleges, Primary schools, social and cultural forums.

Logement & Nourriture
ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS Volunteers will stay in classrooms at the School with very basic living conditions. Volunteers have an obligation to climb down the level of the people with the aim of exposure to development challenges. KVDA will provide foodstuffs and volunteers will cook their own meals in turns. Water is available from springs and it is recommended that drinking water should be boiled or medicated. Mineral water available at supermarkets is also recommended. The Government policy to install ICT in primary schools has seen connectivity to the national power grid for most educational institutions in Kenya and this makes it easy for volunteers to use electric appliances while at the project. Furthermore, we invite you to bring typical food, spices, drinks, games and music from your country (for an intercultural evening) – and a lot of motivation!
