I had always been looking for a reason to go to Africa and the opportunity to volunteer with the Nakuru Kenya Family Project made visiting Africa a life changing experience.
I was able to work in the learning centre and I had the opportunity to work within the community by helping the children and their families who are looked after by the project. Every cent of the money I donated to the project I could see being utilised in the community on a daily basis. The money went toward food, building supplies, medicine supplies, clothing, equipment for the school and more.
This project has a holistic and sustainable approach to offering education, food and shelter to the most in need in Kwatembwa (one of the largest slums in Nakuru). Susan Saleeba, the amazing director of this project, is brilliantly passionate and has committed her life to this worthwhile cause.
I look forward to being able to return to Nakuru and would happily volunteer for this project again. When I volunteered in Nakuru I was 18 years old (the youngest to volunteer), however I would urge anyone of any age to volunteer as there is always something to be done.Volunteering with the Nakuru Kenya Family Project is a valuable life experience and you would be helping to better the lives of those who are in need.
