Volunteering at Daraja was a valuable and interesting experience that I will always treasure. Living at the foot of Mount Kenya in my own rondoval on the campus was fantastic. The scenery and wildlife was the perfect backdrop for my experience. As a volunteer at Daraja I was able to be involved in a multitude of activities. I started the school’s netball team, assisted the teachers, helped with the media club, tutored the girls and helped in the garden. ?The most rewarding experience was to meet and to get to know each of the girls. Despite their tough backgrounds they are so incredibly strong, motivated and honestly very inspirational. It was because of the girls that leaving Daraja was very difficult and yet happy as I felt so privileged to have been able to help them. I would highly recommend volunteering at Daraja to those with an adventurous spirit and to those who do not mind getting their hands dirty!
