Volunteer with us this summer & help 60 girls Join boarding school!
In January 2015, we successfully organized a school building trip to build 4 classrooms for our girls. We hosted 10 volunteers from Life Point Church Arizona USA and 2 from Cavan, Ireland. The volunteers worked tirelessly alongside the local masons to ferry stones, sand, cement and water and together we completed the walls of the classrooms. Read more about it on our BLOG. We have done the roof and we are currently fundraising for windows, doors, plastering, painting and doing the ceiling.
As soon as we are done with the classrooms, we are starting to build a boarding house which will host 60 girls from 1st grade to 4th grade.
We will move all the girls to the new boarding school at the start of third term 2015. We are inviting volunteers from all over the world to visit our school for one week in the summer and help us finish the boarding house/dormitory before the girls can move in.
Volunteers arrive in Kisumu on Sunday 26th July 2015 and leave on Sunday 2nd August 2015.
The volunteers will work alongside the locals to finish up the boarding house, paint it and furnish it with all the boarding facilities before the girls can move in. They will also participate in the construction of a kitchen for the girls.
The trip cost is $1,500 per person. Cost includes airport pick up and drop off at Kisumu International Airport, accommodation, meals, transport to and from the site, and project fees.
You will have to book your own flights (about $1,000 to $1200 return trip).
The deadline for submitting applications is 30th June, 2015.
By participating in this project, you really get a sense of where your contribution is going and see its impact first hand. There is no better feeling than the feeling you get from being here and seeing the difference you’re making in the lives of underprivileged girls in Obunga slum. Your donations mean that the girls can move to their new school by the start of 3rd semester 2015. We can make it happen if we join hands!
