Esikoma Community Health Volunteers (ECHV) is a community self[1]help group established in 2014 by local volunteers operating within 112 Butula Sub County with its main office at Esikoma Market within Marachi central Ward, focusing on Health and community development and other health related issues. · Having realized all these problems within the community, few members from Butula who were trained, decided to establish a group which could address the above mentioned health issues. The group was then referred to as Esikoma Community Health Volunteers (ECHV). · Most orphans whose parents died from HIV/AIDS. Were infected by jiggers, this was as a result of parental and guardian poor care. In generals these children lacked basic needs such as health care, shelter, education, and clothing among others.


WORK: Rehabilitation of Busia wetlands · Environmental education to schools · Conservation of Busia wetlands · Support of venerable children in the communities · Rural renewable energy management and conservation · Nature based livelihood support.


Accomodation and food:  Volunteers will stay in a homestead provided by the local people 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.
