The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the community and project where you serve. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects.
When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping local grassroots development. Volunteer efforts directly benefit local groups, local communities, and local people. We work with our partner organization in Kenya to support them in achieving their goals and ensuring that their projects are sustainable and effective.
What to Expect?
The Maasai are semi-nomadic peoples that have largely managed to remain outside of mainstream African culture and maintain their traditional ways, although this becomes more challenging each year. For this reason Maasai are increasingly seeking the opportunities African society has to offer. With little government support Maasai struggle to find teachers and medical professionals to work in their schools and medical clinics.
