Descripción del proyecto

Community Health Volunteers (CHV) was started with the aim of creating awareness on HIV/AIDS among the residents of Vihrembe area, as well as on issues of sexual and reproductive health. CHV is also actively involved in jigger eradication and awareness campaigns in the community. In addition, CHV educates the local community about the conservation of Kakamega Rainforest and its fragile ecosystem. The forest is home to many unique and rare animal and plant species but the increasing human population has exerted negative pressures to the forest, e.g. illegal logging, charcoal burning, cattle grazing, harvesting of medical plants and general clearing of the forest for agriculture. CHV involves the community in its preservation, ensuring the forest is cherished as a healthy, unique and diverse ecosystem for future generations.
