Monica,25,Italian has been in Kenya for the last 2. Months doing some worthwhile work at Hope Children Ministry, previously having  volunteered in the Projects Abroad Kenya Conservation project, Monica a school teacher back at home has always wanted to gain experience from working from a background different from home.


Hope, a small education and care centre in the slums of Ronda Nakuru, has over a hundred children all from poor and even abusive backgrounds."This reminds me why I always wanted to volunteer abroad, in a place where my help is most needed.It is important to help people as much as you can it goes both ways you improve their situation and it also grows your humanity. They also give me the freedom and space to introduce and share new ideas with the local care takers who are not trained to handle this situation. " Says Monica. Thus has led to Monica handling a whole class on her own an unlike her class in Italy at Hope the classes are overpopulated.


Despite the wanting situation Monica among other volunteers has been working hard to improving the the lives in the slums, "Projects Abroad has a good impact to the community  sending volunteers in different projects all over Nakuru, volunteers come with great ideas on how to improve where they work and the lives of the people affected"adds Monica.


While not at work Monica takes her time off to travel around the country, " I am so happy to have travelled around because I had the chance to see some of the most beautiful landscapes and also get in touch with the Kenyan culture. Living with a host family has also taught me alot about the food and the Kenyan people." Says Monica


Working here has changed my outlook on life and also appreciate my job among other things back at home. I'm glad that Projects Abroad has been very helpful and supportive,  future volunteers should not be worried about their stay, despite some situations being overwhelming you will be well. Taken care of.
