I just completed my month-long volunteering at the project and it was the most incredible touching experience I have ever had! I was convinced to jump in head first as a solo female who had never been to Africa from these reviews so if you take anything away from me, please apply and go!! I was truly touched by the children, the founder, the staff and of course Noah. Everyone welcomed me into their home and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and at home. After a month, I was not ready to leave and I look forward to coming back in the near future to see my new family in Kenya!!!

Volonteering at the project was my first voloteering experience and it was amazing. The kids are so nice, they will love to meet you. They are also very hard working and help you out whenever you need them. I would also recomend everyone to go on a safari trip, it was one of the best experiences I could have wished for. I had such a great time at the project, and even met two other amazing volonteers. I have to say though, that it is not very clear what your work, you're supposed to do, is. But that was not a big deal, I just helped out where they needed me.

Wow! What an incredible experience I had at the project in Kenya! I'm filled with emotions after MY FIRST volunteer stint here. The kids are simply amazing. They're the hardest workers, always brimming with laughter and affection. I'm incredibly grateful for the bond I could build with them in such a short time. I highly recommend anyone considering volunteering here to go for it. Not only will you be helping a remarkable case, but you'll also undergo a transformative experience. It would be fantastic to have more opportunities to contribute. Thank you, the project, for having me.
