  • Description


    We invite volunteers to stay with a Maasai family at our home in Kajiado, Kenya. I am also involved with community building projects where volunteers can help out.
    We stay near the Ngong Hills. The volunteers will be able to go for hikes in the hills with breathtaking views of the Rift Valley. The volunteers will be involved in the local community. They will see how the traditional Maasai community is adapting to modern life. They will visit local schools to lend their help in building a toilet or even offer a few lessons about where they come from.
