Fortune Learners Centre is a project that was founded in year 2013 as a charity organization by 10 social workers from Kayole and Soweto slums who were working in various schools as untrained teachers.

The untrained teachers agreed to start a community centre to provide education, economic empowerment and HIV/AIDS education including psychological support to the orphans, vulnerable children and their caregivers. Fortune’s core areas are education, orphan support and protection, economic empowerment for older orphans and caregivers, volunteer/Internships, educational trips, sports HIV/AIDS and gender based violence awareness.

The Tumaini Fund for Economic Development International (TFEDI) is a Non-Governmental Organization that aims at providing financial and technical advice to people in order to reduce poverty and thus create income for the needy through micro-finance initiatives. TFEDI started in February 2005. The project offers workshops and trainings for the community to improve business management skills and enhance development at a micro enterprise level. The organization has been able to generate funds from their members which they use to cater for the needs of the vulnerable members of the society by supporting to acquire basic enterprenual skills in managing small scale businesses. Micro-Finance clearly has a role to play in the fight against HIV/AIDS as it contributes to strengthening a household safety net. Micro-Finance cannot by itself change the face of HIV/AIDS. It can help ease the financial and other burdens of those living with HIV/AIDS and can help to promote behavior change.

Kinna Catholic Dispensary was started in the year 2001 by the first Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Isiolo-Kenya. The dispensary is located in the arid region of the border between Meru and Isiolo Counties of Kenya. The facility serves both Christians and Muslims from the two counties. The dispensary was established to provide clinical support services to people in the poor people of the local area. Most of the people served by the health facility are below poverty level and hence the church has been the sanctuary, safe place and a shelter for them (both Christians and Muslims). Most of the patents are from the Pastoral communities of Isiolo County. It serves with the main objective of increasing patients’ follow up programs, offering school health programs and to helping the inaccessible areas attain curative supportive and preventive services. The facility lacks sufficient medical equipment and staff to reach out to more people.

There are around 2.9 million individuals with various forms of mental disabilities in Kenya. These Kenyans face many obstacles in their daily lives since many communities still consider mental disability an ailment caused by witchcraft and black magic. These individuals are more than capable of developing useful skills given adequate support. The current education system is unable to support young adults who have mental disabilities since they cannot enroll in an ordinary secondary school and are often too old to attend primary schools. Marianne Center Foundation began in 2010 to help individuals with disabilities aged 16 to 50 years. Marianne is a vocational training center that offers support for these individuals and their families. There are around 40 Kenyans enrolled in this center who have different disabilities including Autism and Down syndrome. The students are divided and grouped into classes depending on their abilities so that they are trained on important vocational skills such as beadwork, baking, farming, activities of daily living (ADL) among others. The mission of this organization is to make a difference in the life of young adults with special needs and disabilities in order to be self-reliant and easily integrated into mainstream life without fear of stigmatization.

Volunteer in the Eastern region of Kenya and work with physically handicapped children in Kyale Small Home. This is a school and a home that was established in 1994. A primary school and Catholic Church surround this home, which currently houses 21 children. These kids are boys and girls aged between 10 to 19 years. These children have suffered accidents, handicaps from or during birth, snakebites, and polio among other disabilities. This home was established to cater for the challenged children within the local community. Every child is entitled to better care and upbringing. In most Kenyan societies, the physically challenged children get stigmatization from other members of the community making them feel less than human. Most people speak Kikamba as a native language. Farming is widely practiced for a living e.g. livestock poultry, small-scale farming of maize, beans, coffee, sweet potatoes, bananas, and vegetables. Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, may be seen from the home.

Vianeey Academy and Children Centre provides education and feeding program to children aged 3-14 years. The children are from low income families, orphans, from single parents and others have disabilities and special needs. The Centre was established in 2016, this came as a result of the founders great passion to help the needy children, love for the children and selfless heart to help the needy. His mission is to go all over the country and reach the needy children, work with the young women and youth to establish a community college where they can learn skills to empower themselves and support their families. In his mission he realized that, most children in Rodi area are orphans, other had dropped out of school and others were left out as they dint conform to the set pass marks in various schools, he was challenged by this and it geared him to establishing a Centre where these children can get quality education to equip them for their future lives. The Centre has opened its doors to all children where they can get access to medical facility which is a challenge In Rodi as people hardly access a medical facility therefore leading to high death rates and also high cost of attaining medication. Vianeey academy and children Centre is a democratic Centre that aims at providing quality education to the children through professional teaching and acquisition of books for the children, provision of recreation activities where the children can discover their talents at a tender age, provision feeding program as some of the families can barely afford meals in a day.

St. Charles Lwanga Secondary School and Children’s Centre started as place where orphaned, homeless and abandoned children were rescued and provided with shelter, food and a place to call home. Brother John started by gathering children, rehabilitating and relocating them into schools, but later realized it was becoming difficult in some cases as existing schools didn’t want to integrate children from the street into their classrooms. This necessitated, in part, starting the school, which in just four years he transformed the little used residence, owned by the Order of St. Charles Lwanga, into classrooms, a dormitory, dining hall .The students, all former street kids living a difficult life in crime-ridden neighborhoods, now proudly wear their school’s uniform and call the Children’s Centre “home”. The children were rescued from the dumps and slums of Nairobi and given a chance to gain an education and end the cycle of poverty and homelessness. Today they are provided with a safe place to live, a reliable source of nutritious food and the opportunity to gain high school education with the possibility of post-secondary education. Brother John hopes that with donations to the Centre, he and his team can build a bigger school with an integrated approach to nurture children through academics to become responsible citizens of the world.

CIVS organizes safaris to all the spectacular National Parks and touristic sites in Kenya, with the main attraction being Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Volunteers who wish to go on a safari should apply at least two weeks before arrival to enable us to make proper arrangements. The fee of 340 euro charged is all-inclusive of meals, transport, park entry, accommodation and tour guiding.
