"My time volunteering in Nakuru has been beyond amazing. It has truly been the best experience of my life. The children at the school are all former street kids with troubled pasts. They are just so beautiful, resilient and happy, truly inspiring! Kenya is a beautiful country that I have loved exploring, at no point have I felt unsafe and my host family have been amazingly accommodating and helpful. This experience has exceeded all my expectations. I could not recommend this enough!!" Christina
Days 1 (Saturday)
Arrive at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta Airport (airport code NBO) and say Jambo to Kenya. After clearing customs and immigration, you’ll be met by our local team and taken straight to your Nairobi hotel accommodation for the night, a journey of 30-45 minutes depending on traffic.
Day 2 (Sunday)
You’ll be transported by local matatu (minibus) to your project location in Nakuru, a journey of around 3 hours. On arrival you will meet your host family and settle in to your new home.
The Project Our co-ordinator will accompany you to the project on Monday morning, introducing you to all the staff and of course the kids so you can get stuck in straight away.
Most days will follow a similar structure, a couple of hours’ classroom time in the morning and the same again in the afternoon. Of course if you’d like to do more then there is always opportunity here in this busy environment.
Days 8 and 9 (Saturday to Sunday)
Spend your free time as you please, your weekends are yours to enjoy. Your host family and our coordinator will be able to help you decide what to do and will advise on the best way to get around. Book a safari, explore your local area or head further afield.
Your last day (Saturday)
Oh no …… no matter how long you’re here for, one of these days it will be time to say goodbye to your newfound friends. We’ll help organise the return transfer to Nairobi, but keep a few shillings handy for your fare).
