Kenya Sustainable Village Project
Purpose: The purpose if this organization is to support the efforts of Children of God Relief Initiative (COGRI) – Nyumbani Village, in their mission to help meet the basic needs of marginalized youth and elderly in rural Kenya. When possible and permissible, KSVP will organize students into traveling teams to work with the Nyumbani Village by providing manual labor, and service learning curriculum to the 7th and 8th grad students in their primary school. This partnership between William and Mary and COGRI doesn’t not already exist on campus, and a host of students have expressed interest in supporting CONGRI regardless of the organization’s travel status. The Kenya Sustainable Village Project will provide William & Mary students with the valuable experience of learning about community engagement and service learning, and out students will also learn extensively about HIV/AIDS relief in Kenya, and community development founded on the concepts of permaculture.
