I spent two weeks in Nyamira volunteering for the Blessed Childrens Hope foundation.BCHF is a young organization which is still on the way to became a place where children can create opportunities and get education.As a volunteer I was hosted by Andrew and his family and could experience the life there close up.My time spent with the children was one of the best experiences I had and will always keep in touch with them.
Thank you for everything :)

Volunteering at BCHF Was one of the best experiences I ever had! Andrew and his family made the best they could to make me feel at home, the kids are adorable and the project is great! I’ll definitely keep on touch with them!

It was one of the best experiences of my life.
