June 30th to July 13th a group of Africa Direct volunteers will be working in Kitale, Northwest Kenya, alongside our partner the Good Shepherd Sisters Kitale. This is the fifth trip of its kind, with the previous years’ groups having great success (read the comments at the bottom of the page).

The cost is €1680 for 2 weeks if paying in full by yourself and €1980 if fundraising (the details are broken down in ‘Application & Fundraising’ link below). Living with the Sisters means savings so we can deliver maximum funds raised into projects. Mixing and working with the community is more fun than productive, it’s those funds you bring that make the long-term difference.

Since 2012 150 mud houses have been completed at the low cost of €200 each. Due to these improvements in housing there has been a great improvement in life of the community with better health conditions, more space within the houses, people feel proud to be part of this community and to show you their home. A description of the projects you will see can be found below in ‘Learn more about the project and Kipsongo village’. (More about the projects can also be found in the link below or on our partner’s page: Good Shepherd Sisters Kitale )

I most enjoyed the fun we had. The women and children (of Kipsongo) are so happy with their lot. The pride they had in what they have achieved so far
