VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES IN KENYA AND TANZANIA THIS SUMMER
Maji Mazuri is a Nairobi-based charity. They currently have nine projects that you could get involved with, including teaching classes, helping microentrepreneurs, working on a farm and helping with the Youth group. Mvumi Secondary School is a rural boarding school with a visually impaired unit. As a volunteer, you could get involved with many aspects of school life: including running extra-curricular classes such as debating, drama, music or sport; mentoring visually-impaired children; and helping to set up the Mvumi radio station. With both programmes, there is a lot of flexibility to tailor your project to suit your interests. Both programmes are low-cost compared to similar schemes. Mvumi provide free accommodation within the school grounds and at Maji Mazuri volunteers stay with a host family, so only have to pay a small amount for accommodation and food. There is also no obligation to fundraise for either charity (although it is encouraged). If you are interested in either programme, please email Zahira (zb243) or Ciara (cvm27) for further information and a copy of the application form. The deadline for applications is the 20th February.
