Nyamanche Primary School started the year 1981 as a Government School. The School supports children from the neighbouring villages. It consists of 600 (six hundred) pupils, 350 girls and 250 boys. The school has 12 64 teachers, 1 female and 11 male. It has 10 classrooms, 2 offices and 1 kitchen. The school has good academic record in the County.


Work: 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: CHIL/EDUC/MANU Volunteers will work for six hours daily from Monday to Friday. 65 Manual work and Intercultural activities: · School construction · Teaching primary school pupils · Tree planting · Stones collection and pathways clearing · Sensitization of the community on the side effects of FGM · Home visits and topical discussion with the local people.

Accomodation and food:  · 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.
