Makuyu Kids & Youth Center

We give value, and give the best experience back. We treat you as a king/queen. A visitor in an African homestead is, indeed, a King/queen. We endeavour to give you the best out of your stay with us, each day, each minute!

I am William, 36 and I run Makuyu Empowerment Center (makuyu-kids.org/brasil). I've a modest 2-bedroom house where I can accommodate up to 2 volunteers at any given time. We've a lean staff of 5 at the Center, making it easy to make decisions. Volunteers are treated like kings. Don't believe it? We clean your room, do laundry for you, prepare, cook and serve you! And if you're adventurous, we will walk around over the weekends.

La experiencia con los niños de MEC SANTOS FC fue muy buena. Fui con mi novio y empezamos sin saber como ayudar con los recursos que teníamos (Recurso humanos no financieros). Así que empezamos a enseñar español a los chicos y finalmente surgió el proyecto de la Cooperativa para las madres de los niños, creemos que es un proyecto que ayuda a los niños y a sus familias para poder tener un medio de ingresos sostenible en el tiempo. espero que los nuevos voluntarios puedan aportar a este proyecto que necesitará de mucha asesoría para entrar en el mundo de los emprendedores. Anímate!!

The project helps a lot of kids via a soccer team,kids that without the NGO would stay in the street.Also,through it they are helped to apply to study in the schools,because it’s very expensive and their family can’t afford it.
About our experience,we focus to work with the mothers of those children,so we plant a seed to create a cooperative integrated 100% of women, we raise money to teach them the job and now their are starting to work. We believe that is a good project because to help the childs is mandatory to help the families.
Also ask William for the GoogleDrive

My experience in Thika was great. William took really good care of us and the communication with him it's always easy and so nice. He will work his best to make you feel home. The food is good, and the accommodation it's nice too. I'll hardly recommend going there when the raining season it's over since it's more difficult to work with the kids when it's raining. But if you enjoy working with kids, you want to get to know a little bit more about Africa, and you are open mind, that might be your place. Do not hesitate to contact me if you would like more information!
