Volunteering or Interning

Hailing from Australia, Europe, USA, each and every volunteer or intern has been an integral part of the development of this project.

They came during the summer or gap years; some took leaves of absence from their jobs. Each of them has left a mark in the community and gone home with a sense of belonging to a new family.
Their presence and actions impact the community in multiple ways : teaching math or science, introducing drones, helping in orphanages or in children’s wards in the hospital, creating a youth center, coaching sports, fencing, roofing or building architectural models for future constructions.

Each one has been instrumental in the development of the project, and left a mark in the community. Their Kenyan families still ask about them regularly.
