I had a wonderful time in at Ivy League Academy in Thika with William’s family. William really treats you like family and wants you to have a really good experience there. He has hosted over 100 volunteers so his family is very experienced with these experiences.

William has an amazing and clear vision/plan for where he wants to take this project and he’s very open about all the details and challenges that go into it. The school has lovely students who are very excited to learn. The school has a special welcome/goodbye parties for you. I miss everyone so much! Thank you William!

I do not recommend this volunteering. Most of the agreements I made with William were not fulfilled. I did not teach, as he said. I did not help organizing the school, as he said. I did not help with new school projects, as he said. The only help that will be appreciated in here is how much money you can give or get by finding sponsors for the school. Money which is not invested in the school. It is expected from you to share all you do in your personal social media. We agreed I will stay for two months, however, William asked me to leave during the second week. Accommodation and food were ok.

Ivy League Academy es un hermoso proyecto con un impacto social muy grande en la vida de las niñas, niños y adolescentes. Durante mi estadía pude realizar muchas actividades desde recreación, clases y hasta la construcción de un patio. Sin duda fue una experiencia que transformó mi vida ya que el proyecto es un espacio seguro para la comunidad escolar. Me gustaría destacar que para vivir la experiencia es importante es tener flexibilidad ya que la organización cambia según el acontecer y trabajar la comunicación asertiva para que puedas tener una buena estancia. Gracias por la oportunidad!

Buena experiencia con los niños, siempre es agradable jugar con ellos y tuve una gran oportunidad de diseñar y construir un espacio abierto para ellos casi si ningún problema. La organización y la comida podrían mejorar.
