We greately needs volunteers who can work in our farm. We cultivate crops such as local vegetables and fruits along the Lake shore within Rusinga Island. Apart from that anyone can be a volunteer - teachers, sports activists, Fundraisers, engineers, photographers, web designers, doctors, students, carpenters, travelers, mothers, fathers, etc. We welcome anyone who is motivated.
Our group is comprised of both men and women, old and young, and we all work together in order to benefit the local children in the community and hopefully ultimately benefit the greater world. Many of the children that we support are orphans and vulnerable children, and we attempt to provide them basic education, food, and any resources that they need in order to survive and prosper.
At our volunteer programs, volunteers normally engage in a variety of activities including (but not limited to) farming, community work (helping the elderly in their homes), class teaching (grade 1-8), sports playing, feeding the young children within the school, garden preparation, construction work, teaching music, caring for the donkey, goats, and cows, etc. All work that you do helps our group to continue to be functioning as best as possible in order to help the children. Volunteers work for about 5-6 hours a day during the week.
Volunteers live with the host family (homestay). Unfortunate we don't have running water and electricity though we have treated water as well as solar powered electricity. Volunteers are given a chance to experience a very authentic African lifestyle in all aspects. It is a great chance for you to be a part of a different culture and to learn about how others live their lives.

Remba, a kind of slum island is situated in Lake Victoria under Mfangano Ward, Homabay County in Kenya.
It has a population of about six thousand people depending majorly on fishing activities for food and income, by using hundreds of fishing gears (boats) hence too much pressure on the lake.
Other than fishing, no any farming method ever practiced in this place, leaving the residents vulnerable to diet associated diseases among other socio economic gaps. It is on this regard that we (John, Osunga and Richard) thought of starting an Organic Farm to provide the community with the missing alternativs on food security.
We therefore, open our doors for WWOOFers who at will can share with us Skills, Labour and any other support to help us improve on crop production and make the firm self sustained. We are continuously having greens and sereals plus fruits on seasons. Activities on our farm includes digging, seeding, irrigation, weeding, mulching, harvesting and fencing using gill nets.
Volunteers can stay with us for a period of one week to three months or more. We speak English, Kiswahili, Luo and Olusuba languages.
Feel free to contact us for any enquiry. WELCOME.

Ogutu Organic Farm was commenced in the year 2012.It is located in Wakinga village,Mfangano Island.It is 1.5hectares.It majors basically on gardening.We grow and accommodates varieties of crops namely;cassavas,maize,carrots,guavas,yams,pumpkins,water melons,potatoes,pawpaws and bananas.We also rear manageable goats,cows,sheep,chickens and pigs.The project is owned by the family who provide workforce in the farm.However,some of the challenges experienced are lack of garden expertise and workforce.I personally i love farming because i learn it in High School and therefore wants to put the skills and knowledge gained in school into practice so as to determine the amount of input and output achieved for the success of the vulnerable group in our community as humanitarian who is concerned with the well-being of people in the community fraternity.I speak English,Swahili,Dholuo and OLusuba.A balanced diet enriched with fruits.Accommodation is also available;
WAGEGO ORGANIC FARM was established in the year 2010.It is a family property,2 hectares in size.It is located in Wamai Village,Mfangano island, along the shores of Lake Victoria.The Island has attractive physical features and brilliant landscape. The garden entirely uses organic gardening practices and methods to improve its productivity.
The farm hosts a variety of crops such as cassavas, sweet potatoes, bananas, pumpkins, maize, beans, avocados,paw paw, tomatoes, kale's, herbal,aloe vera, lemon grass, yams and cashew nuts.We also rear animals such as goats, cows, and chickens.
The activities carried out in the farm include mulching,weeding,seeding,transplanting,planting,irrigation,pruning ,making compost manure among others. Outdoor activities include reaching out to the vulnerable in the community through social groups, traditional dancing and singing.
Volunteers will also learn,enjoy and experience new cultures by visiting cultural and historic sites such as The Abasuba Community Peace Museum,traditional rock art,ancient caves,swimming,hiking,bird watching,and boat expeditions around the island during their stay.
From the onset, the project has been financially and socially supporting vulnerable orphans to access quality education, and widows living with HIV / AIDS in the Abasuba community. This has been partially achieved through the income generated by selling farm produce so as to improve the livelihood of the targeted group.
It is on this regard that the farm urgently seeks organic gardening experience exchange to provide expertise and manpower from volunteers to realize its dream of social - economic empowerment of the vulnerable in the community.
We also provide hospitable food and accommodation services in a serene environment to volunteers during farm stay.Volunteers are free to determine the preferred length of stay in the farm depending on their schedule. Kindly feel free to contact us for a memorable organic gardening exchange experience and change lives.

Tesh organic farm deals in cropping of Vegetables, Bananas, Onions, tomatoes. I also keep poultry in this farm. Tesh farm is a family farm and need help in fencing, weeding and digging. This farm is an individual farm i.e we are working together with my husband and children, I have a space which includes accomodation for any volunteer in the farm, food. A volunteer can stay for as long as she/he wants. We speak luo language but my family speak clear english language. I have 2 kids a boy and a girl aged 12 and 1.
Ogege Organic Farm was started in the Year 2011. It is located in Wakinga Village, Mfangano Island which has a local HIV/AIDS prevalence estimated over 30% and high unemployment levels among the youths. The farm is approximately 1.5 Hectares.
It accommodates all varieties of crops such as vegetables, beans, cassava, potatoes, yams, water melons, pawpaw, and pumpkins among others due to its high productivity.
The main objective of the farm is to raise the living standards of the youths as well as physically challenged persons in the rural community through provision of financial and social support. This has been achieved partially by giving financial assistance to orphans who are unable to proceed with their studies from the little income the project generates after selling the produce.
It is only through access to quality education that the farm can eradicate the alarming poverty levels in the rural community that is concentrated with the HIV/AIDS epidemic killing thousands and leaving helpless children in the remote community.
However, the project is currently experiencing challenges such as technical expertise and manpower so as to run smoothly and achieve its mission.
It is on this view that the farm seeks willing volunteers who can help upgrade the living standards of the vulnerable orphans in the rural community.
The farm also provides free food and accommodation services to our volunteers during farm stay.
FOOD GENERATOR is a family owned garden almost 200 metres from the Lake Victoria's shore of Mfangano Island.The garden is enriched with fertile alluvial deposit transported from upland hence the natural soil fertility support a variety of healthy edible food crops which we consume and the excess are cheaply sold to the community around.The farm characteristics has been a helpful study area for agricultural field research for many secondary schools learners from around the Island.As a family we teach volunteers on organic farming practices and we welcome lovers of environment to come so that we restore our environment and at the same time learn the mission together.For any concern, feel free to ask us and we will sincerely respond.WELCOME

Nabulu means growth in Maasai language and is the name of this Maasai family owned ecological farm and Bed and Breakfast. Nabulu is also the homesite for the nonprofit organization called Naramat, a community based organization dedicated to improving the lives of the Maasai living in that community. Naramat has been active on issues like female genital mutilation in the Maasai community as well as ecological farming for prosperity and food security in the Maasai community.
Nabulu farm and Bed and Breakfast is a 7 acre property with dairy cows and two vegetable gardens. Milk, kale, sugarcane, bananas as well as other local greens are grown on the farm. There are two large rainwater harvesting tanks that provide the majority of water for drinking and household needs. Wwoofers stay in a shared bedroom with one of the daughters in a western style home. There is a bed. There are pit toilets and a shower. The family is modern maasai and more than happy to share stories and knowledge of their culture as well as expose you to the local Maasai community through the local church and their friends.
Interns wake up with the family at 6:30 and can learn to make Kenyan chai and to cook on a wood fired stove or manoever a donkey to fetch water as well as sweeping and other household tasks like getting firewood and landscape maintenance. Help with meal preparation and clean up is expected. After lunch, interns can take a shower and have a rest until 5:30 when they can help with dinner prep. Once a week the natural mud structures need to be smeared with mud and is a great task for interns to learn about the local natural building techniques. There is a mother and father, daughter, grandchild and dairy cow worker on the property most of the time. Sometimes the other children come home and make a fun experience on the farm.
Developping their land ecologically and sustainably has made this farm a beautiful example of locally grown ecotourism. The farm is located on the edge of Maasailand in the rural village of Meguara. Wwoofers enjoy the serene and beautiful setting that guests enjoy as well as typical Kenyan and Maasai meals prepared on a traditional wood fired stove. The majority of meat, fish, milk, greens and avocadoes are grown on the property. With its very own fish ponds, dairy cows, and vegetable gardens, Nabulu is becoming one of Maasailand’s most ecologically developed indigenous farms.
Agatha Amani House is a grass roots initiative and women's shelter in Kenya, East Africa for victims of sexual and domestic violence and is the first of its kind in the country.
Many defenseless women are beaten or sexually abused, separated from their children and literally kicked out on the streets. It has only been in very recent years that gender desks have been established at police stations around the country. But even with that first step towards helping these women and their children, the reality is that it will take years for women and girls to realize their rights and safety under the law. Therefore we are committed to providing help for our sisters in Kenya who desperately need our help. And we are asking you to join with us in this critical initiative.
Services include but are not limited to safe shelter, counseling, advocacy, education and transitional assistance through placement, vocational guidance and training. The shelter is located in the beautiful scenic Rift Valley near lake Naivasha (the only fresh water lake in the Rift Valley) and not too far from the Maasai's. Community visits will be great experiences!
We are looking for short term and long term volunteers with both basic or advanced skills. Skills such as project coordination and management, farming skills(both animal and plants), handyman-ship, cooking/culinary skills,Nutrition, House keeping, health and hygiene, education including teaching English, marketing,computers, social media, blogging, social work, counseling, community outreach and mobilization, advocacy, fundraising and having fun.
We are a new shelter that is now open, operating, has residents and a working farm. The farm uses Biogas, solar power, rainwater collection,drip irrigation, cows, goats,chicken, rabbits, verticle gardening and compositing. We need help with the transition to and implementation of permaculture and organic farming which we have somewhat started. We even have plans for hydroponics and aquaculture. All this programs and activities will assist the residents and the house towards becoming self-sustaining. This is a great opportunity for a person to learn and make a difference while receiving a great cultural experience.Plus a safari can be an added treat for those that can afford it. Come help us serve and grow. We are now ready to establish our farm as an organic and hydroponic farm. We are also looking for a single person or couple seeking a long term stay in Kenya where you can contribute your passion for growing food through a community-based nonprofit. Someone with some knowledge of organic farming, hydroponics or permaculture design principles. FB https://web.facebook.com/AgathaAmaniHouseInitiatives?fref=ts

I am a humanist organic farmer focused in promoting humanitarian and environmental awareness to the people of the community who have actually not realized the daily arising health dynamics.We have an empowering center for the WOMEN OF LAKE VICTORIA, WHERE there talents are restored and put to productivity and they are also taught how to live a positive life despite the socio-economic segregations thatbefalls them in the community.We ALSO EMPOWER children from elementary schools to secondary schools by providing for them guidance and councelling,formal learning facilities amongst others which also cuts across the two groups . I rear manageable number of cattle and also an excellent cultivator of edible crop varieties like fruits,greens,cereals,bananas stem and root tubers in my farm which is in touch with the fresh water of L. Victoria.I love the tropical climate of the Island since it is very favorable to agriculture.I am also very concerned with the environment conservation both water,land and air, since life is greatly attached to environment status.So who ever feels would have an idea to improve our environment kindly give yourself for what it takes and nothing can defeat our effort.I highly welcome WWOOFers to come so that we can share organic experience as you also enjoy the tropical Climate, unique geographical scenery and cross cultural values of our people.Your experience and idea is very vital to my WWOOF project. Welcome to Mfangano Island full of love and peace.Am an Individual living with my mum and three other siblings in our home.It is blessing for us to host WWOOF Volunteers.I speak English,Swahili,Luo and Suba.I will provide WWOOFers with good accommodation and I would love to at least have WWOOFers for 3 and more days.Diet will constitute mostly organic products.Feel most welcome to secure Island.I established this farm to help support innocent Orphans whose parents were swept by devastating HIV/AIDS, who have remained living a very discouraging and vulnerable life since they lack basic human needs like education, food,health care and clothing.On the same there are also several widows both aged and many of whom are affected and infected by the pandemic sieges,they are very poor and as a result I have extended my hand to bless them with the products but now the number is too large than resources.I therefore need to expand the project if I can get water pump ,pipes and a water storage tank.For any well sympathetic individual your support towards empowering these vulnerable persons will be highly appreciated and is a reward to you.Your WWOOFing support is highly appreciated by us.I have enjoyed and loved hosting dear volunteers so much since I have learnt a lot.Welcome.

Borana-Kabati is a 100 acre Organic farm that is part of the 32,000 acre family owned and operated Borana Conservancy. The farm is nestled between Borana to the west and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to the east on the side of the Ngare Ndare River just North of the Equator. We are in the process of transitioning the land from a heavily cultivated herb farm into a more bio-diverse and ecologically balanced permaculture system. The target is to produce enough fruit and vegetables to feed the 300+ people employed by the ranch, lodges and the conservancy. Produce enough fodder to be able to finish our grass fed beef and see them through the long dry seasons. We are also in the process of designing and preparing to build a small eco-trainimg and permaculture school. At the moment we are looking for anyone with experience in natural building methods and establishment of dry land permacuture systems.
