JOIN OUR KENYA LEGACY PROJECT
Imagine spending 10 days, in Kenya, doing something that will have a positive impact on hundreds of thousands of children’s lives for decades to come… Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well look no further, this is your chance to create a lasting legacy!
We are inviting 12 incredibly inspiring people, just like you, to join us in November 2022 in Kisumu, Kenya for an unforgettable adventure and to literally help us build our future. You will reimagine, renovate and revive the compound into our new Kenya headquarters, volunteer accommodation, and playground building workshop. You will also transform an empty field at the neighbouring primary school into a safe, fun and exciting playground for children, that will boost their education as well as enable us to showcase our amazing work to new partners. Of course, it’s not all work and no play! You will have plenty of free time to discover the treasures around Kisumu and you can even extend your trip add on a safari to round this whole experience off.
Almost 1.13 million children of primary school age (6 to 13 years old) are out of school in Kenya. Education is one of the most effective ways for people to break the cycle of poverty and our playgrounds and play-based programmes encourage children to go to school and enhance their learning.
