Watoto Wema Thika

Watoto Wema Thika is a small project that does wonders to the lives of children of Thika, and Kenya in general. We are in an atmosphere of laughter, kindness, joy, and never a dull moment. We try to be as helpful as much as we can. And yes, when not working with the kids, we're probably taking a cold beer together & laughing :). Completely stress-free Volunteer experience.

William is a small-time businessman involved in uber and other small businesses including a small restaurant near the Centre of Thika city (town). He's fun loving, almost always smiling yet able to take things seriously especially touching the lives of kids. At the project, we've various staff: 1. Coaches - a lady and a man. They are Pato & Cate who help with the soccer training of kids. 2. Cook - Jackie helps with cooking for the kids, daily, Monday to Saturday. She is sometimes assisted by Grace, when we don't have a volunteer to help her cook. 3. Counsellor/guide/teacher - Often times, we invite a counselor, Margaret, to speak to our kids especially teenagers.

The volunteer was an amazing experience! When I got there I realized all the kids were just willing for love and attention. Also, the girls don’t have the same opportunities as the boys, so I had the insight to create a new project: Girls empowering. I truly believe that this project is gonna do well as it’s already making positive things in there lives.
William and his family made me feel like a member, I really love than..if you have any questions about anything can keep in touch with me!
