KARIBU SANA!! (SWAHILI FOR MOST WELCOME)

Introduction –

Vision Academy was started under a cashew tree at a village township called Bamburi in Majenge Kanamai Location, approximately 2-3 hours from the airport. It was established in the May of 2006 with the sole purpose of educating the poor and the needy rural kids and also establishing a holistic form of education. Additionally, the unemployed people around also get a chance to work in the school and be the bread-earners of their families.

Soon, the town developed little by little but the concept of education and schooling is still outdated in most areas with some institutes surviving barely with minimal electricity or such other basic resources.

Soon the schools and other childcare projects independently joined hands with each other to sustain and develop newer ideas for growth and technological progress.

Background Information –

The founder, Mr. Sylvester Kalenga, came across a lot of poor and needy children in the neighborhood communities. In the absence of due educational support by the government, he decided to start off a primary school with a few children and soon it grew in numbers. It was his high school dream to provide for the community as things have drastically changed in the modern world. Previously a hotelier by profession, he has ample experience in dealing with tourists and visitors which is where he knows the environmental impact of cross-cultural exchange which can bring a new dimension to the educational system.

Post-Pandemic era –

The school is set in the rural background of a distant county. Through sustainable collaboration from the parents and unofficial aid from other schools and sponsors during the curfew, the school somehow managed to wither the storm. Although it’s still standing on paper, the financial damage really hampered the school’s upliftment progress. What appeals to the eye is the joint effort of the staff to keep the kids well-fed and happy despite a massive budget crunch. Hence, the call for help is to provide a silver lining for the much-awaited educational and basic needs support.

Current structure –

The school has two system of Education:

  1. C B C
  2. 8-4-4

 Facilities in the school:

We have 10 class rooms, 2 toilets, 1 small kitchen and a well.

Mission –

  1. To provide basic education to the needy and poor kids.
  2. To teach the people new ways of sustainability in the absence of long-term standing careers.
  3. To teach the surrounding communities about Afro-Western collaboration and bring about a change in the traditional concept.
  4. To help grow the school into a standing symbol for holistic education through digitization.
  5. To promote and realize the values of cross-cultural exchange amongst the locals, to inspire respect, accord and help foreigners learn the beauty of Kenyan culture. 

Aim –

The main aim of this project is to provide educational resources such as books, clothes, etcetera for the school children, besides helping out in renovating the school.

We are looking for volunteers for the following agenda:

  1. Fundraising assistance.
  2. Resources support like buying stationery items, digitization tools, clothing for the kids.
  3. Engaging the staff in student-friendly pedagogy and assisting them in better ways of learning.
  4. Engaging in art and craft activities.
  5. Vlogging on the school’s situation and background, if possible.

An enriching CV and a memorable journey that helps you grow further both in career and life.

Journée Typique

First Day: On your first day of volunteering, you will be escorted to your accommodation by a local coordinator/staff member and allowed to relax and rest.

Following that, you will meet the organizational hierarchy who will explain the work and the ongoing projects to be done. Please ensure to inform the admin/contact person about the flight ETA and other details, as and when required, prior to the journey. This would avoid any unnecessary loss of time by waiting at the airport. 

A typical volunteer day would be as follows:

  • 8.30 AM: Volunteer leaves for the project destination. The volunteer joins with the local staff and will be oriented about the work to be done.
  • 12.00 PM – 2.00 PM: Lunch break. During this lunch break, you are welcome to eat out or eat at the accommodation.
  • 2.00 PM - 4.00 PM: Work at the project usually ends. The volunteer at this point is free to travel around and explore or do anything at his/her own choice.
  • 7.00 PM: Dinner in the accommodations.

Usual work days are Monday to Friday. 

Saturdays and Sundays are off-work days.

Activités de Loisir

During the weekend, volunteers have spare time to relax or take the opportunity to explore the Mombasa locale, such as visiting the beach, planning a fun and entertainment program with the kids, etc.

Also, they can tour in and around places like Kilifi, Diani and so on.

There’s no dearth of places of rich and cultural heritage and the famed African wildlife. Fort Jesus, Jumba ruins are some of the weekend tourist hotspots.

NOTE- The program coordinator can arrange for sightseeing, only after proper intimation and discussion.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION -

We do understand that some volunteers may not be able to spend as much so it is better that they discuss with the management prior to arranging a stay. In the times of the pandemic, empathy is a route to better communication and compassion. Although the money is directly invested for the provisions of the volunteers and the children and the caregivers, what we need in exchange for a budget compromise is your love, energy and ideas that can suit our betterment. Surely, some sort of arrangement can be made.

Logement

Volunteers have the option to stay in the school or a nearby pre-arranged guesthouse, where you can expect to share a room with other volunteers. Usually, the school doesn’t have much facilities but can be arranged with a ground carpet/mattress. The better and more suitable option is the guesthouse where volunteers have their own apartment with most of the facilities including the Wi-Fi.

The volunteer house is located in Mwtapa itself, 2 minutes from the project site. There are provisions of electricity and running water; Along with a swimming pool which they are free to use during their stay. However, the Pricing might go a little higher based on the usage of such commodities.

Volunteers are accommodated in a volunteer house, where you can expect to share a room with three to seven other volunteers. Bedrooms are comprised of bunk beds with bedding provided, which includes a bedding, blanket and pillow.


The volunteer house has electricity and running water.

Maison des invités Chambre simple Chambre double Camping
Aliments & Boissons

Volunteers are provided with three meals per day (breakfast and dinner), which are served at the accommodation. However, in case of lunch, it may be at one’s own expense or sometimes shared with the school staff. Not to worry, a proper local lunch usually costs no more than 1.5-2 euros.

Breakfast is served around 7-8 am and generally consists of chai (tea), toast, fruit and sometimes mandazi (African donuts). A typical lunch can include vegetables with rice, occasional meat and fruit and is served around 1-2 pm. Dinner is usually served around 7-8 pm and usually includes traditional food, such as ugali, chapati, mbuga and irio, alongside meat and vegetables.

Tap water is not safe to drink in Kenya, though bottled water is readily available. Volunteers can bring their own bottles or water containers although there is provision of filtered water at the guesthouse. However, clean water is available at the accommodation. Volunteers typically drink around half a gallon, or two liters, per day, which adds up to cost around $5-10 per week although drinking water is available at the volunteer house.

If you have any special dietary requirements, please make a note on your application so arrangements can be made. However, it is important that volunteers do not expect to eat as you normally do at home.

Informations sur l'arrivée

No specific start date would be announced. Work is already underway to renovate and improvise the school at the soonest. It would be useful for the volunteers to make the journey at the soonest and get the maximal experience.

The program orientation begins usually on the day of the volunteer’s arrival or the day after, given the randomly changing flight schedules in lieu of the recent covid19 situation.

  • After you have registered for the program, please book your flights to arrive at Mombasa International Airport (MBA) in Mombasa.
  • Before you arrive, you will be given navigational guidance by a member of the local team and transported to the volunteer accommodation. A pick-up is usually recommended but do note the pick-up fee is not included in the fee.
  • If you are traveling in Kenya prior to your volunteer program, we can arrange for you to be picked up in Mombasa on the day before your program orientation or you can navigate by yourself to the destination. Please make sure to keep in touch with the program coordinator and you will be assisted and guided during the tenure of your tour and stay accordingly. After all, traveling is always smoother when it has a proper communication system.
  • Orientation is given by the admin or a staff member in the school.
  • Orientation begins on the morning of your chosen start date and covers everything you need to know for your volunteer program in Kenya – Introduction to Mombasa, Kenyan Customs, Language Training Details, Rules and Expectations, Safety, Travel Opportunities in Kenya (in and around Mombasa) and Introduction to your project.

Once your orientation is complete, you will be guided to your work location and you can proceed with the relevant work.
