“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Lao Tzu
The above quote couldn’t be more relevant to the independent travelers looking for a new adventure. Making a decision to travel alone or as a small group can often be daunting, especially when you are not really sure what you want to do and for how long.
YTA is here to give you a helping hand in volunteering in Kenya and can tailor a trip to suit your own needs.
We will work closely with you to ensure you have an experience of a life time whilst making a difference to the children at our partner projects. We can assist you all the way through your trip from pre-trip advice to support throughout your time in Kenya. Let us know how much of the trip you want help with and we will be happy to provide support.
On your trip there is a range of activities from assisting the teachers, teaching a class, low scale maintenance and renovation, help in the school kitchen, teacher training, skill sharing. Here is what some of our past individual volunteers have said about their experience:
“I wanted an adventure and an experience, and that’s definitely what I got! I met some amazing people. I would say to anyone to not let shyness and self-doubts get in the way. Go for it, you won’t regret it!”
“I have travelled widely but my short time in Kenya was something very different. We were welcomed into the schools as guests and witnessed the resourcefulness and joy of people who make the most of very little. We reassessed our own lives and bonded together with laughter, comradeship and kindness not always felt at home. Thank you Younite for a unique and special experience that I will never forget. We had fun and we were useful – can’t get better than that!”
“There was so much to get involved in when we were in Nakuru, YTA 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!!”
