Volunteer with Faulu productions a refugee-led community-based organization in Kakuma refugee camp/Kenya
FAULU PRODUCTIONS is a non-profit community-based organization working to strengthen the livelihoods of refugees and host community residents through education, agriculture, Skills for Life and other community projects. It was founded in Kakuma refugee camp on the 30th of June 2015 by refugee youths from the DRCongo, Somali and Sudan. We are officially registered and recognised by the government of Kenya.
Our vision is to create a sustainable refugee community where everyone realizes their value, reduces hunger and where non-violence, children and women have equality of empowerment in place.
- 1. Hospitality and Closeness drive us to accompany and welcome the most vulnerable people (Women, disabled, old age, and children).
- 2. Responsibility and commitment: inspire us to be accountable to the people we serve and spend our time to make sure they benefit from what they deserve at the right time.
- 3. Dignity and justice: drive us to respect all refugees and members of the host community. We believe that all people are equal; therefore, they should be treated equally regardless of their race, gender, religious beliefs, nationalities, and cultures.
- 4. Inclusion and Participation: inspire us to make all refugees and members of the host community feel part of the society, and in turn to play their role to fight or report a stumbling block that might prevent them from enjoying their human rights.
- Education: ECDE Program for children from the Ages of 3 to 6, Adult change maker courses including Peace Building and Conflicts resolution, Leadership, computer training, Social Entrepreneurship and Economics for Positive Change.
- Livelihoods: under this project, we run various life skills training including Micr-Finance activities where we teach vulnerable women entrepreneurship skills and then later provide them with loans for the running of the business for self-employment and life sustainability. Environmental Cleanliness and Trees planting: under this project, we collect solid waste materials that are later recycled for the fabrication of reusable made products or assets, and then we plant trees for global warming reduction.
- Children welfare and girls at risk: this project aims at ensuring that children are treated fairly and provided with their basic needs for their well-being, we also conduct some training for teenage ladies about human reproductive health sessions and advise them to avoid undesirable pregnancies etc.
