    My name is Jack, founder of the Organization. Our Organisation is located in Mathare Slums, is a dynamic community initiative dedicated to empowering women through comprehensive training programs. Our focus areas include fashion and design, carpentry and woodwork, computer programming, and business financial literacy. Currently, we proudly engage with a community of 150 women actively participating in savings and schemes.

    We are on a mission to expand our impact and establish a vital Community Resource Center that will serve as a hub for socio-economic and skill development. To achieve this vision, we are seeking enthusiastic volunteers who can contribute their expertise in our training programs and, more importantly, assist us in fundraising for the crucial Community Resource Center project.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Volunteers in Kenya will experience cultural exchange and diverse learning opportunities. They will witness different ways of living in Nairobi, including the contrast between slums and the city. Cultural immersion involves learning traditional foods, folk songs, dancing techniques, and new languages. Interactions with locals include open discussions, historical site visits, and exposure to the rich history and resilience of the Kenyan people.

    Activities range from visits to animal orphanages, Crocodile Villa, Bomas of Kenya, game reserves, fishing in Lake Victoria, to exploring Maasai Mara game reserve. The organization promotes a peer-to-peer approach, exposing visitors to Luo cultural practices and the country's flora and fauna. Volunteers may gain a second family, learn the native language, develop interpersonal skills, and explore future research opportunities in traditional practices.

    Volunteers are encouraged to engage in social interactions with local children, organisation staffs and parents, providing a unique experience. The program is open throughout the year for individuals, couples, or teams. Considering the challenges of travel during the pandemic, online/remote volunteering is also welcomed.
