The Experience

Our social project is a grass roots safe home for women who are victims of sexual and domestic violence and abuse. It is the first safe home of its kind in Kenya where women and their children can not only find immediate safety from an abusive situation but can stay for a longer period of time to learn new skills that will enable them to find jobs and become independent.​ ​​We are centered in the Naivasha and Maui Mahiu region of Kenya.

The project is an incredible program. The women are absolutely amazing and everyone is so nice. You really can choose what you do to help the project out, there is a lot of flexibility to allow you to work with what you're good at. If you want to teach classes mainly, classes will be provided to you. If you want to focus mostly on the permaculture, then that's available to you, too. There are so many projects you can dip you hands into from painting, to childcare or sewing to farming. The experience overall was incredible and I wouldn't have exchanged it for anything else!

I had a great and a special time in AAH with the staff, volunteers, residents (the women) and their kids. I'm sure you're going to find something that you like and that you find interesting between the social work and the environmental programs. Talk with the staff when you think that they are given you more tasks that you can handle. They will understand you, but maybe they are not aware of the hours of work that imply the tasks they are giving you because of the amount of work that they already have. I assure you that you'll have an amazing experience in AAH. I want to come back some day!!

Thanks Felipe for a wonderful time and sharing your skills and love. I missed the lessons on Happiness that you taught the women so you will have to come back and teach me:)
Felipe is such a generous and loving soul. Those who will experience his presence are blessed! May you be blessed Felipe and may you touch lots of hearts. Please come back some day! soon maybe? Love you.

I loved my time at the project. Nyakio is a great host and the program is very organized, so I could settle to settle into my work well. I learned so much and was able to push myself to contribute in multiple areas. The women are absolutely wonderful, I miss them already! I also had plenty of time to explore the area on my days off with the other volunteers, which was super fun. Overall, this was an amazing experience.

O projeto é um lugar apaixonante! O projeto é incrível, Nyakio é uma mulher que vai te inspirar, como todas as que estão na casa. Elas vão te trazer uma nova visão do que é ser mulher. Você terá a oportunidade de uma imersão no mundo feminino! O seu dia já começará reflexivo: pela manhã, após o café da manhã, uma frase é escolhida e lida para para se pensar sobre. Durante a tarde você terá várias atividades de diversos assuntos como cozinha, arte, habilidades... lá é assim: sempre aprendendo e dividindo! Espero poder voltar um dia. Foi inspirador!
