Our conservation and eco-tourism programs are primarily based in the Kakamega Rainforest. The opportunities include a tree nursery and afforestation program, conservation education and outreach program, butterfly farming and community education, and eco-lodge construction which offers accommodation to tourists visiting the forest. Volunteers can also work in the snake park and training centre to educate the community about the bio-diversity of the forest - exhibit snakes, crocodiles, ostriches and other animals. Volunteers can get involved in any of these programs depending on their skills and interests.
Touch Africa Network (TAN) is a non-profit Voluntary Service Organization based in Kenya.

This is done by incorporating voluntary service to community development processes.
