Rendille people of Northeast Kenya,

Volunteer in Marsabit, Kenya



Marsabit is located in the Eastern Province and is surrounded by the beautiful National Park and Reserve. The town of Marsabit is situated in a green hilly area in the vast semi desert, with a population of about 5,000.  It is 500 kms north of Nairobi and 200 kms south of the Ethiopian border. Our projects here are based in two separate locations. One will take place around Marsabit town and the second project will operate in Laisamis, 100 kms south of Marsabit.

My adventure with Go Make a Difference was a life-changing experience and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. You will be making a difference and I guarantee you won’t come back unchanged.
