When and where is this trip?
In October 2017 (half term), you have the chance to be Notts County FC Football in the Community second team to travel to Nakuru, Kenya for 10 nights, flying locally from Birmingham into Nairobi.
What sort of work will I be doing in Kenya?
There are three types of volunteer roles to choose from which include:
- Community work and teaching in primary school classrooms with children aged 4 – 12
- Leading multi-sport sessions for children in a variety of sports
- Community building and school renovation to improve local facilities
Is it all hard work?
Of course not! You can’t go that far and not experience some of the sights of Kenya. You will experience a rift-valley adventure day, visit a giraffe sanctuary, tour a local market and attend a farewell celebration ceremony to thank you for your hard work.
