Embarking on a solo volunteering journey in Kenya was a decision that left an indelible mark on my heart. From the moment I was welcomed by the local team, I felt like a part of a family. Noah is an incredible host who will do anything to help you and Joseph, the owner of the orphanage, is always worried about the well being of the children! The kids are all amazing and super sweet . I already miss them a lot ! Dont hesitate to embark on this journey and any doubt you can ask me :)

I spent 1 month at the project. I recommend this experience because the project is special place, children are lovely and always bring a smile to your face. You learn a lot about local culture since very few muzungus are usually in the area, and people are wonderful in their efforts to get to know you and your culture. Special thanks to Noah, the one responsible for making this possible for volunteers, as well as Joseph for creating this place and making you feel comfortable in it. Thanks to all who have been with me in, both volunteers and locals. I hope to return someday because I will never forget it.

I spent two very special weeks in the project. It was an experience that I recommend to have in order to really live in the local culture surrounded by people who make you feel at home, but above all surrounded by the smiles of the children, always ready to share quality time together and always with a smile. Special thanks to Noah, always there to help at any time and for any need and Joseph who takes care every day to let you have everything you need to feel at home. Thank you very much, I carry you all in my heart with the hope of seeing you again one day!

Volunteering at the project was an incredibly touching experience that touched my heart deeply. Spending time with the 60 children who have no families was both humbling and eye-opening, reminding me of the importance of compassion and connection. Noah, the gracious host, went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and integration into the community. His kindness and support made me feel like I was truly part of something special. There is not enough space to give a thorough review of this. For those interested in learning more, feel free to contact me on IG: cometravelwithchu.

Doing this volunteering has been one of the best decisions of my life. It has been an amazing experience that I will never forget. the project is a peaceful and reliable place. The children are so friendly and nice, they always have a smile on their face and you can do whatever with them. Noah, Joseph, Dorcas and all the staff at the project are very attentive to your needs and constantly make sure that you are well. the project has become a second family for me, I have felt very loved and happy during my stay there. I would highly recommend this volunteer to everyone and I will definitely come back.
