    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    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.
