My name is Ben I am 18 years old and love music, concerts, socialising with friends and visiting new places. I work as a sales assistant in a shop and I'm also a Presenter on Wessex FM. Travelling abroad and helping people less fortunate than myself is something I have wanted to do for a while now, so I decided to tick it off my bucket list by visiting Nanyuki in Kenya. I am going to be part of the General Care programme for two weeks from the 12th March 2018 and I am really looking forward to getting stuck in and helping improve the lives of others!
If you would like to help me to help others then I would really appreciate a donation to help fund my time on the programme. There are more details here:
Thankyou in Advance and I will post again soon!
Today was the fourth day working on the project in Kenya. Our project is making bathrooms for Vision Star school, because they don't have any. We have made very good progress on our project. There are also four other local construction workers telling us what to do! We work on the project in the mornings and then in the evenings it is fun time in Kenya. We play with the kids from Vision Star school quite a bit. They love singing songs and saying poems. Their ages are from 3 to 7. There is 105 students at the school with three different classrooms and three teachers. Another place we went after work was Furaha Foundation. This is a place where orphaned children go. There are many children of all ages. We made paper airplanes and they had never seen that before so they thought that was pretty cool. The boys and I had a competition to see who could fly theirs the farthest. An eight year old boy named Kevin won. He was my little buddy! We also bathed the small children before bed time. On the third day we went to Mama Kenya and learned about the Kenyan culture. So far my experience here has been amazing and I am excited to get the toilets done so the children have a sanitary place to go to the bathroom!
Today is my second day at my host families home
! I have met 8 of the people that I will be working with for the next two weeks. I am excited to get started on the project! But before the project starts we had to get some things settled in the office and get a Kenyan phone. We spend our off time at the host families home hanging out and playing with all of the children!
I would like to thank everyone who has prayed and blessed me to go on this trip. In this photo there is a suitcase filled with donations I have been given and gathered. I am extremely excited to distribute these items once I get there. I will also be buying more donations once I get there. It is just one day untill I start this extraordinary adventure, and I can't wait to see what lies ahead!
Le grand jour est arrivé! Je quitte aujourd’hui pour le Kenya. Aujourd’hui je dois affronter un vol de 8h, une escale de 4h et un autre vol de 7h. Un petit dodo à Nairobi et op demain un 4h de 4X4 direction Nayuki. Je vais donner des nouvelles quand je vais avoir accès à internet. Bon été tout le monde!!
