Thank you for your interest in coming along on a future mission trip. We generally visit Kenya during July or August due to the schedule of the kids we are visiting and stay between 2-4 weeks. We invite anyone who has the desire to help others and wants a life-changing experience to inquire on future trips.
The skills you need
You must have a love of children and a genuine commitment to the project, while some experience of working with young people is useful. You will need to be flexible, and have initiative and enthusiasm to face the many hurdles and challenges that you will inevitably encounter within your role. To ensure that you get the most out of and contribute fully to your project, a pro-active attitude is essential.
Nakuru is Kenya's fourth biggest town and is about 160km from Nairobi. It's fairly laid-back and modern with relatively good transport, and is well linked to the rest of the country. Facilities are good, with several banks, internet cafes, tour operators and small hotels. Water and electricity may occasionally cut out, but in general they will be available.
