You will spend 2 days on the white beaches of Mauritius, 3 amazing days at Boston school in Matopeni, Nairobi, Kenya, 3 days on safari in the Masai Mara, cross part of lake Victoria, experience rural village life at Butere near the Uganda border; visit the source of the Nile, cross Uganda, track chimpanzees and be hosted at Rugashali school
Arriving in Matopeni, Nairobi, you’ll have the chance to make a difference as you experience a unique insight into the life of this vibrant African community where smiles are the common language and where you will be welcomed like an old friend. We are privileged, as few westerners stay in this community. Matopeni is a slum, yet over the past 8 years its school, with our support, has improved to be the best of 48 schools in the area – you’ll see why!
We will bring replacement computers, and you can help train the teachers and children in computer skills. You’ll each have a child as your guide. Your donations/funds raised will enable solar power, a big deal, as power here is intermittent and needed so as to be able to maintain the level of study they require and by the way they study hard! You will run workshops on your area of skill and tell your life story to inspire the children with what is possible. Your donation will fund solar power for the school, as they study late!
