Volunteer in Watamu, Kenya

OVERVIEW

 

We are very excited to announce that in Summer 2022, we will be partnering with A Rocha in Watamu, Kenya. A Rocha is an international Christian Charity that specialises in conservation and community outreach programmes. 

A Rocha would like us to build some water tanks for rural communities, training local people in this skill. There is currently a huge demand for water tanks with the ongoing drought. A Rocha are working with remote communities who want to acquire income generating skills to make a living. 

There is also the opportunity to get involved in some sports lessons at a local school as well as teach health lessons. You can also take part in ringing of the birds. 

You will stay at Mwamba, A Rocha's guesthouse which is on the shore, overlooking the Indian Ocean. The accommodation is very comfortable with communal areas to chat and play games in the evening.

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.
