I do not recommend this volunteering. Most of the agreements I made with William were not fulfilled. I did not teach, as he said. I did not help organizing the school, as he said. I did not help with new school projects, as he said. The only help that will be appreciated in here is how much money you can give or get by finding sponsors for the school. Money which is not invested in the school. It is expected from you to share all you do in your personal social media. We agreed I will stay for two months, however, William asked me to leave during the second week. Accommodation and food were ok.

We made history together. I stayed for 2 months in Ivy League and Will was definitely the best host I could have had. I was treated like family the whole time. We got the chance to fundraise, teach kids, be part of the NGO management, negotiate land, meet families, donors, kids - it was like and MBA in international development. Also we started to build a sustainable model for the school, so it wouldnt depend only on donations. Will is a very intelligent person with a lot of street knowledge. Also he took me to some amazing sights in Kenya like Maasai Mara and Nakuru lake.

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!

Ivy League Academy es un hermoso proyecto con un impacto social muy grande en la vida de las niñas, niños y adolescentes. Durante mi estadía pude realizar muchas actividades desde recreación, clases y hasta la construcción de un patio. Sin duda fue una experiencia que transformó mi vida ya que el proyecto es un espacio seguro para la comunidad escolar. Me gustaría destacar que para vivir la experiencia es importante es tener flexibilidad ya que la organización cambia según el acontecer y trabajar la comunicación asertiva para que puedas tener una buena estancia. Gracias por la oportunidad!
