Traveling as part of a group with like minded people is one of the best and safest forms of travel.
Not only can you make a bigger impact to the projects you visit you also have the opportunity to experience every step of the way with friends, family or colleagues as well as meeting new people.
As cheesy as it sounds you really will make friends for life.
Sharing a unique traveling experience with others is something you will never forget.
Don’t just take our word for it. Here is what past travelers have said…
“The past two weeks have undeniably been the best of my life, where I helped, played and loved children with all my heart and saw their little faces brighten up with so much happiness, despite what is going on in their lives – there’s always a little flame of hope inside to keep them going. On top of that, I have had the chance to meet the most amazing and dedicated people who never give up, as well as meeting new faces and being able to make new friends. But most importantly, I have embraced my life a little more and learned a lot from this experience, which will never be forgotten. All I can say is bring on next year!”
“When you learn and understand what these children go through daily, everything that happens in their lives that you don’t bear witness to, it can be heart-wrenching. Because of this, whatever we do, no matter how insignificant it may seem to others, truly helps the children lead a better life. When I return from Kenya knowing that I’ve helped one child a little or a hundred children a lot, I sleep comfortably at night in the knowledge that I’ve done my best to improve the lives of those who have less. It is truly an indescribable feeling. If I was prime minister, these trips would be compulsory for everyone, but for now all I can do is recommend it to absolutely anyone, chances are it will change your life.”
“The teacher training YTA provided before the trip was fantastic and really helped give me an idea as to how I could teach the children a range of new skills.
They taught me new techniques such as EDUCARE and went through the syllabus the school use to help me prepare lessons.”
— Molly Hayden – Social Worker
“I volunteered in Kenya across the summer.
Whist at Silver Bells we were involved in building a new classroom, and we also got involved in plastering and painting existing classrooms and helped with putting in new floors.
It was good to see that the money from our project pledge was being used whilst I was there.
It was a heart-warming and rewarding experience.
I’m now fundraising to join another trip in 2016!”
— Emma Matthews Capita Events
“It was really rewarding being able to help feed the children at Melon and Silver Bells.
It broke my heart that without these two meals a day the children wouldn’t receive anything.
We helped prepare the food and also helped with the washing up which was a huge task for over 600 children!
It made me really appreciate what I have at home.”
— Gus Gardener Coventry University.
“There was so much to get involved in when we were in Nakuru, Younique Travel Adventures planned so many extra activities to keep us busy.
We were able to make lots of visits to the super market to pick up lots of chocolate and crisps!
We also were able to have some time to relax at a local hotel which had a swimming pool and the all-important WiFi.
The experience shopping at the local market was unforgettable!!”
