"I will never forget the time I had at the African orphanage. I’ve been there for 4 weeks, and it was worth every single day. Often I worked with Albert, the Guy for everything :) We plant some trees, built a gate, helped building 2 classrooms for the school at the orphanage, fixed and repaired some tools, tables, chairs etc. I taught baby-class, Pre-school and 1st class Maths and English. Sometimes we went for a trip with a Matatu (Taxi) to Thika and the Equator in Nanyuki. We went there always with a staff member, so we always kind of had our personal Kenyan guide who told us where to go for example or who could negotiate the price in Swahili with the seller...which was pretty awesome. There is a big market on Sunday in the village where you can buy tonnes of fresh delicious fruit and vegetable. The children will love you as soon as you make the first step into the orphanage. I am pretty sure that I learned more from them than they did learn from me. And to play with them when their school is finished is more than fun. The staff is super friendly, and Geoffrey and his wife are one of the nicest persons I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. They will pick you up at the airport and bring you back on your departure day, they are 100% reliable and I can just totally recommend to experience Kenya by being a volunteer at the African Orphanage. It is a unique experience for women and men in every age! And yes, the water there is clean and safe to drink"
