Sol-Kenya volunteers help in the following programs:
They work as teachers or counselors to students in both primary and secondary level.
They also serve as instructors in a vocational center for boys and girls.
Work in community dispensaries and provide medical help to members of the community,
the volunteers also provide community health education to community
groups and schools by moving round in the community and by visiting homes.
This gives one an opportunity to truly visit and learn of the rural Kenyan lifestyles.
During the home visit a volunteer is accompanied by staff who helps in providing
health education, basic health assistance, and psycho social support to the families visited.
Food and Nutrition Support Program:
Together with our staff home visits are done to households that need
nutritional support and food is provided, sometimes they work closely
with the families in establishing kitchen gardens, poultry,
rabbit keeping projects and other agricultural activities
that boost the food productivity of the community.
Sol-Kenya serves various families that are either infected or affected with HIV&AIDS,
weekly meetings for the support groups of people living with HIV&AIDS
are held on various locations and this becomes an opportunity for the
volunteers to meet and share with the people living with HIV&AIDS.
During the meetings psycho social therapy is provided to the people living with HIV&AIDS.

of environment, are involved in micro saving programs,

structures by working closely with the organization in
building the organization’s capacity. This is done by training the staff on management,
