Samuel has such a kind heart and was always making us laugh. He cared so much about making sure we were comfortable and we he was always flexible when our plans were changing due to covid. We had a great time helping out at the school and playing with the children in the afternoons. Anne was so lovely to and she taught us how to make chapatis! Thanks samuel - all the best.

I had a good time at World Meets Kenya, the children were so sweet and just wanted attention and love. We spent a week at the local school which was so much fun, meeting the teachers and kids and I definitely felt I made a difference, however the school didn’t seem like they needed much help in regards to volunteers, so maybe a school which isn’t a paid school would be more valuable for volunteers help. Something we didn’t know though, is where you are staying is where the after school club is held, so there are always children in and out of your accommodation so there isn’t much privacy!

I had an amazing time with World Meets Kenya. Sam made sure that the stay was enjoyable by listening to the comments and planned activities depending on what you like and how you feel on the day. I got to plan trees, spend time in a local school but my favourite part was to play daily with the kids of the neighbourhood. They are all very keen to know more about you and where you come from and you’ll get to know more about their daily life in Kenya. They also have so much love to give! There was never a dull day. I miss the children so much already and cannot wait to go back one day ☺️

First of all: THE KIDS ARE AMAZING. I’m missing them every day!

Samuel and his wife are really friendly and open for suggestions.

The schools are wonderful with great teachers and a lot of devoted children who will definitely play with your hair 😅

Keep in mind it’s a basic facility with no real shower and sometimes no water but that’s part of the experience ☺️

I’m going back without a doubt!

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to send me a message!
