"Yes We Can Self-Help Group" would like to obtain 10-15 Playstation Video Game consoles and rent them to people interested in playing video games in their community and be our generating income project to support the school
If they charge between 10-20 KES per game, the group feels that they could rent a house and afford to have one person operate this as an income-generating business. After expenses, the thought is that income earned would then be used to support and sustain their projects.
For this task, we are seeking a volunteer with business knowledge to:
The school board and management of Keframa Colllege intend to continue working in partnership with the Lango Youth Action for Development organization. The goal of this partnership will be to focus on development issues at a grassroots level one of which is promotion of income-generation activities to support the school.
The PROJECT ROOM is a space for sharing general information and project updates that may not fit into the designated tasks above. If you have a question about the Odoot Kaberamaido community, HANDS IN SERVICE, or just have information you want to share and are not sure where to put it, this is the place!
We are very happy that you have taken the time to visit the Odoot Kaberamaido village here at Nabuur and learn a bit more about the HANDS IN SERVICE organization. We invite you to join our village as an online volunteer and sincerely hope that you will do so.
Please take a moment to introduce yourself here. Tell us a bit about yourself, your experience and any particular areas of expertise that you have to offer. You can also read about the other volunteers on the team as well. We look forward to getting to know each and every one of you.
We are considering all possible means of income generation to help our school and the students that we serve. We are seriously considering income-generation activities such as raising poultry, establishing a demonstration garden at the school and teaching tailoring and/or other artisan skills to our students.
We would like to set up a pig farm for orphans and community members as a demonstration project at the school to help supplement income. We would need help getting pigs to get us started, defining management skills to teach to the farmers as well as to learn about feed and obtaining the proper vaccinations to make our demonstration farm a success.
We hope that our volunteers can help us set up this demonstration project and make it a success. We look forward to benefiting from your advice and expertise.
