Volunteering as a family is a fantastic way to teach your children about the world.

Your volunteering opportunity will give you an incredible insight into the factors that influence the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa, and the role The Nasio Trust plays in giving communities the opportunity to change their lives.

Whether you decide to get involved with one of our many projects, or help out at the Noah’s Ark or St. Irene’s Day care centres, the time and energy you invest will make an incredible difference to the lives of people in desperate need.

So many of our past and present volunteers have found the experience intensely rewarding on a personal level. Seeing the sometimes desperate conditions faced by the people we work with on a daily basis, has a habit of putting many first world problems in perspective.

I had an absolutely eye opening experience, really teaching me about the problems of the world. It also helped to decide my career as I want to make a difference – lawyer (hopefully human rights). I have also fallen in love with the children I met and sponsor a HIV positive child who I am looking forward to seeing again this year.

This visit opened my eyes to how other people live. It gave me a new perspective and has encouraged me to travel more.

The Nasio Trust changed my views on the consumption or things we take for granted, as well as the use of water & electricity. Also I have benefitted by the ways of the Kenyan children. This has made me a more positive person and created more inspiration in my every day life.
