SRI has been receiving various international and local volunteers since 2016. They stay at SRI in different times/periods. Students from local universities who volunteered with us in 2016 are Harriet and Jackson of Moi University, and Paul Ologo and Wayne Abach of Maseno University. Most of these volunteers offered support in administration and during the construction of our Resource Centre, ranging from bamboo preparation and building construction, carrying out interviews in the community to find out the importance of the center. The volunteers had interesting experiences during their stay.
