Volunteering in Kenya with SYI is one of the best decisions I've made in my life. Not only have I gained so much experience, I've also made tons of new friends and found a new family. People from the organization, my host, other volunteers, and most importantly - the kids in the slum - they're all such wonderful and lovely human beings. I wish I could've stayed longer than just 3 weeks. Thank you very much for everything, the organization ❤️

Thank you Maria and Alejandro for the time you spent with us at Soweto Youth Initiative. I wholeheartedly recommend them for any future volunteering activities and programs. They are responsible, dedicated hardworking, focused, open and ready to learn.

Best regards,




Melhor experiência internacional que já tive, sem dúvidas. Organização faz um trabalho incrível e de forma muito séria, sempre dando liberdade para os voluntários darem o que tem de melhor a oferecer. O trabalho por lá é feito por gente comprometida e que recebe todo mundo com muito carinho e cuidado. Me senti amparado em todos os momentos e totalmente conectado às pessoas de the organization. Países da África sofrem com má reputação na mídia e na internet, mas estando no Quênia me senti seguro e sempre muito bem tratado por todas as pessoas. Recomendo de olhos fechados a todos.

Thank you Pedro for the time you spent with us ,from all of us at SYI, we wish you all the best in your future travels and endeavors.

Much love,




Ha sido una experiencia muy bonita, a pesar de la cantidad enorme de niños, hay organización y siempre había algo que hacer. Recomiendo vivir día a día en el slum, estuve en casa de Conie, donde fue más personal la experiencia, y se aprende mucho más de la maravillosa cultura keniana. Con Joshua y todo el equipo también genial, hacen una labor increíble. A experience everyone should have. My experience was simply amazing. I have instantly like home away from home. Everyone at la organización has always been kind. friendly and willing to help. I have had a wonderful experience!

You are amazing.
Much love!



Cuando llegué a la organización aún no sabía muy bien que entorno iba a encontrarme; la vida aquí,dentro del slum,es muy diferente a mi día a día en España. Pero he de decir que no me costó mucho adaptarme ,todo el mundo me lo puso muy fácil, además tuve la suerte de coincidir con dos voluntarios españoles. He podido vivir con una familia su día a día,cocinar comida típica y ser una más. Detrás de este gran proyecto hay gente maravillosa y muy unida que velan los unos por los otros para ayudar a la comunidad. Son una gran familia. Creo 100% en la labor que realizan.
