Volunteer Opportunities 

Cana Kitchen Garden

Cana has a garden that is meant to provide the girls with vegetables and some grains. Cana kitchen garden is planted by the girls and its volunteers. However, Cana garden is looking for volunteers and donors to donate irrigational subsistence since the project area is devastated by draught, irrigational subsistence that include water tank, pipes and ploughs shall boost the garden output for the benefit of the girls.

Cana Girl’s Vocational Training

This is a learning institution, destined to provide its girls with second option of survival after life in Cana. The institution is training girls on trade, business and craft causes like tailoring, computer applications, entrepreneurship and secretarial courses. Currently Cana Girls have no structures for the enhancement of the project. However, Cana has constructed some structures that enable the classes to continue.

We are humbly requesting friends and well wishers to assist in equipping the workshop that will help the girls shine their future.

Cana Girls Sponsorship

We receive girls of the age 9 to 12 years, they join school and begin to build their future, some were already in school but since their parent want to get them circumcised and later get them married off, they run away and come to us fro refuge. We take them in and help them accomplish their education and provide a conducive environment for them to live in. We are therefore seeking for well wishers to provide the funds necessary for the girls to go through with their education.

One can help a single girl pay for her school fees and get to buy the necessary items through a gift of U.S. Dollars 480.

We have 59 girls at the centre, they are sheltered and they need basic and health facilities at the center. Since some of the girls run from their home in fear of being mutilated and married to old me, they engaged to some vocational learning at the center and it’s the duty of Cana to provide them with food and other necessities.

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is high in the community and it will require time and hard work to be overcome. It is actually a practice that it has cause great negative impact towards the development of the community.
