My story

[p]My aim for this project is to give something back, there is no better feeling than making someones day, but with this trip we have the opportunity to change the future of these children's lives. [/p][p]On the 24th October 2020 myself and other Aston Villa fans will be departing to Nakuru in Kenya, it is the 4th largest city, we will be helping to teach in classrooms, coach sports and build new facilities that the schools desperately need to enhance the learning environment.[/p][p]We will also take part in home visits and experience the conditions and environments some families in Nakuru live in.[/p][p]Supporting children’s education will be one of the tasks, the activities will involve assisting teachers with lessons for children aged 3-17, reading stories, preparing meals, playing games and sports, and general interaction. [/p][p]With overcrowding an issue at the projects, improved facilities are needed to accommodate growing numbers and create more learning spaces. We will take part in painting, moulding bricks, and assisting with the build of school facilities. [/p][p]The aim is to change the lives of the young people in Nakuru, African Adventures have made a massive impact so far, they are partnered with over 25 community projects so far in areas of Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar and have supported over 20,000 children. [/p][p]I will be documenting this trip by creating an overall video showing everyone the positive impact we will have and showing the different conditions people learn and live in.[/p][p]Any support you can help me with is massively appreciated and will mean the world to these amazing children.[/p][p][br][/p][p][url=https://www.african-adventures.co.uk/volunteer-in-kenya]https://www.african-adventures.co.uk/volunteer-in-kenya[/url][/p]
