I am the programs in charge at Pambazuka Africa,a grassroots organization in Kiambu Kenya. Pambazuka Africa is an organization that work with needy youth,street children and vulnerable women.Our programs offers a very good life experience of learning new ways of life in both rural and urban areas of a developing country.Volunteering to work with us gives an individual the best platform to learn more about African cultures,ways of life of Africans as well as strengths and weaknesses of the African society.Alongside that you get an opportunity to visit our national parks,games reserves where the is a lot of wild life.
Workwayers will learn local languages Swahili and Kikuyu which the local volunteers will teach them.Local dressing codes, learn how to make traditional foodstuffs such as ugali and mokimo ,interact with locals so that they learn their lifestyle. If you love seeing the natural beauty of our country ranging from wildlife and natural sceneries welcome to Kenya.
