Accomodation and food
• Volunteers will stay in classrooms at the School with very basic living conditions.

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!

Project hosted by
Ushuhuda Network for orphans and vulnerable children in Webuye is a community based organization situated at Mang’ana village along Webuye Mang’ana Sitikho route about 13km off Webuye Bungoma road. Its offices are within Testimony Preparatory Academy (Formerly Ushuhuda Academy) the fundamental aim of the project is to address issues that face orphans and vulnerable children in Sitikho. Most of this children, some infected or affected with HIV/AIDs, need education, food, clothing, shelter, medical care, guidance and psychological support. About 350 pupils were identified as needy and due to join school. The social worker in collaboration with village elders have so far brought more than 150 pupils to school from std 1 – 8. Ushuhuda Network was started in the year 2011 and registered in 2012 vide certificate number A2569 and registration number 1213. It had been realized in the year 2010 that a good number in the Sitikho location sugar belt were either infected or affected with HIV/AIDS pandemic and therefore vulnerable. They faced so many challenges in the modern day life. They lacked basic social services or basic needs such as food while at school, proper shelter, clothing, medical care, educational care and parental guidance. The children’s Act 2001 and revised 2006, protects such children from all forms of abuse and discrimination. However it is saddening that there is inadequate legislation set to protect those affected or infected with HIV/AIDS. This leads to a feeling of discrimination and stigmatization to the OVcs. UNOVCIW Community based organization was formed to provide education., protection, care and support to Ovcs who have been affected or infected by the HIV/AIDS scourge. The huge rise of the Ovcs in Sitikho location, Webuye division influences this aim. The group plans to take care for the needy children educationally, socially and physically. We plan to empower youths and young widows through vocational skills training by networking with SNPPACA, CBO in Eldoret as a partner. This will automatically enable them sustain themselves for self reliance.

THEME: Enabling Children to access quality Education • Primary Education While the free primary education (FPE) program has increased access to primary education especially among poorer households; ancillary costs of primary education (such as school uniforms) continue to hinder the educational attainment of many children. In addition, the provision of quality education remains a challenge. This was highlighted by a recent study by Uwezo (2010) which found disappointing levels of learning among primary school children. The continued and consistent dominance of private schools in the KCPE has further raised concerns about the rising disparity in quality between public and private schools. • As students from richer households increasingly enroll in private primary schools, designing policies that address the achievement gaps in public primary schools will overwhelmingly benefit students from poorer households that are unable to access private schools. Evidence from randomized evaluations suggests a number of key cost-effective interventions that could be introduced to address the inequities in access and achievement in primary school. • In 2009, the secondary school net enrollment rate was approximately 50% (World Bank, 2009), while the primary-to-secondary school transition rate was equally low at 55% (MOE, 2010). Despite the recent reductions in secondary school fees, these fees still present a major financial obstacle. The 2005 Kenya Integrated Household budget shows that on average secondary school expenditures accounted for approximately 55% of annual per capita household expenditures. While the increased availability of bursaries (e.g. from the CDF) have provided many families with financial assistance, the pressing burden of secondary school fees prevent many students from attending secondary schools. These financial barriers are especially important for females and vulnerable groups such as orphans, and the poor. The continued poor public school performance in the KCPE can also act as a barrier
