How would you describe/rate your experience working with the ABV staff in the USA?
It was a great experience! Everything went to smooth with no problems at all. The ABV staff is so helpful and really goes out of their way to make it an easy and fun process.
How was the local ABV Director and the support provided in-country?
The in-country director, Geoffrey, is great! He picked us up from the airport and took us right to the project site. He always asked if we needed anything and really helped he transition into Kenya.
What was your favorite memory of this trip?
My favorite memory of the trip is all the time I spent with the children. The children are absolutely precious, so I’ll of love and joy!
What was the most difficult thing you experienced?
The most difficult thing I experiences was jetlag on the way home.
What was the one thing you wished you were better prepared for?
I wish that I had brought more food from home to supplement the delicious food provided. Also I would learn basic Swahili phrases.
Any tips for future volunteers… (clothing, travel, personal items, donations, sightseeing etc)
I would suggest bringing food from home or buying food in town to prepare a meal for the children an staff. They really love pasta an pb&j!
