Grace Academy is a school that was founded to serve vulnerable children and the children of refugee families living in Kenya. The community that welcomes us is Kabiria. Here you can really feel part of a social transformation and all knowledge and goodwill will be very useful for our children and staff. Close to the center of Nairobi and with easy access to supermarkets, shops, bank and all the services you may need in your state. We have chosen a special place to accommodate our volunteers where they can interact with the children of the orphanage and have access to the basketball court and local craft shops. Be part of the community and live a real Kenyan routine for a few days :)
You will be welcomed and very well looked after by our dear Jacob. Founder and director of the school, with an incredible story of overcoming and a giant heart, he receives all the volunteers with much respect and attention. All the teachers and staff at the school are very gracious and grateful for the presence of the volunteers.
Great experience! Im glad to meet Jacob and help in his school.
I had the opportunity to teach English and sometimes Geography for the kids and in our break we had a lot of fun playing some games!
Living in Africa is not comfortable and there is a big reality shocking (every day), but this is what makes it an amazing experience!
I have some pics/videos in my instagram @henriquekid
Please, write me if you have any question... the kids are lovely and they need your help! :)

Dos três meses que passei voluntariando no Kenya, a experiência em Kabiria foi com certeza a mais transformadora! Sou muito grata por ter conhecido o Jacob e toda sua família, amigos, professores e as crianças da Grace Academy. A vivência vai além do dia-a-dia na escola, pois o Jacob faz questão de mostrar o máximo possível para os voluntários, prepare-se para longas conversas com muito conteúdo e histórias emocionantes, e esteja pronto para viver de perto a rotina queniana. Fiquem à vontade para me pedir mais informações, ficarei feliz em ajudar! Você precisa viver essa experiência, acredite!
