The Experience

We believe… in providing a hope and a future. One of the most creative but logical and time-proven ways to provide food and healthy diet for vulnerable children in Africa is the cow, chicken, and garden projects. The idea is to give a source of food while teaching children life-sustaining ethics rather than short-term relief. We're ideally situated in rural sites perfect for agricultural endeavors.

Staying with Andrew and his family was amazing. You truly are immersed in the local culture. For those from a first world country it may take a few days to adjust to the heat and food but this was a eye opening and amazing experience. You really can make an impact here.

We have had na amazing two weeks at the organization close to Kisii. Andrew and the family were really welcoming and we felt like we were part of the family. Because the schoolyear was ending, our volunteer program mostly consisted of preparing the kids on their exams and the big day of the year: Graduations Day. Be aware that the community considers you as someone with money, which can be a bit overwhelming. Although, a simple explation made them understand that we rather supported the school in general by setting up a fundraising to finish their new schoolbuilding.

I had a fantastic time at organization. Andrew is a great host, he and his family made me feel like in home. The job he is making with the kids is awesome, the school needs more volunteers to help him with fundraising to accomplish this project. The kids are very sweet and lovable I am gonna miss them so much.

My work at the foundation was incredibly fascinating. The host family of Andrew, as well as all the children from the school are very welcoming and lovingly open for foreigners. The structures still need a lot of help, but being part of the process is enriching in every aspect!

I had such a nice time, this is a once in a lifetime experience. Andrew's family makes you feel at home and the children are so special that you wish you could stay longer or come back sometime. The place where you stay has all you need. I had my own private room but it depends on the number of volunteers. Food is a bit simple but tasty.
