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 everyday impact of poverty on the people we work with, puts many first world problems into perspective.

I will never forget my life changing trip to Kenya. It is something I will always remember and cant wait to plan my next adventure again. I got to meet my sponsored child and her family and made memories that i will always treasure.

I had the privilege of going to Kenya with the NASIO trust and spending 10 days doing volunteering work. On the face of it, it seems as though I was the one giving to the Musanda community, but this is not true. Whilst I may have given materialistic things such as a house we built, I was the one receiving so many things. The love that we were welcomed with from the minute we stepped off the plane was utterly overwhelming – I have never felt more at home halfway across the globe. The lessons that I was taught over the 10 days are some that I will never forget and am eternally grateful to have been taught. The positivity and gratitude that the children and families have in abundance – despite their extremely difficult situations – is incredible, and has completely changed my outlook on life. The kindness and generosity they show to each other has made me determined to change the way I interact with others. These are just a few of the lessons that I’ve learnt, and I will forever be grateful to the NASIO trust for allowing me to experience them. It was truly the best, most fulfilling 10 days of my life and as soon as we landed in England I began planning my fundraising for coming back next year!

Oh my goodness, I had the best time AS ALWAYS!! On the Thursday I saw my little Melvin and it was everything and more than I could imagine! It was just so lovely knowing she still remembers me! I was so worried she wouldn’t as it’s been two years! She held onto me the whole time, it was magical! It was so lovely seeing the whole family! John kept playing this little game and pretended to take my arm saying “it’s my Faye” Melvin kept pushing him away laughing her little head off!! It was so sweet! I knew I was going to cry when I said goodbye, that was a given! But I hugged her goodbye and she cried too! I just wanted to take her with me! But thankfully the lovely Jane invited the family to come to the medical centre ceremony! The whole trip was just great! We got to go see the waterfalls which were beautiful! Taking them to the Golf Hotel was such fun! It was amazing to see how happy they were! It also meant a lot to go on all those home visits and provide them with a mattress, food, cushions etc! They are just so grateful! I love the Nasio Trust and everything it stands for! You can tell a lot of heart and soul goes into the charity! Saying goodbye never gets easier, and as we all learnt last Wednesday you can’t sing and cry! I will hold it in my heart forever, and I am aiming to go in September for my birthday next year! Thank you so much to everyone for these opportunities! X

Nasio Trust has had an enormous impact on my life both personally and professionally. As a result of this I shall be returning back home a different man.

In the past few weeks I have had the privilege of volunteering in Musanda from my secure and sheltered life in Nairobi, I have been able to support the staff and children with difficult and challenging cases affecting children which really touched my heart and gave me the drive to fight for children’s rights in similar situations.

I now truly believe in Nasio Trust Motto CHANGING LIVES FOR GOOD, because Nasio Trust really changes children’s lives for good and gives them hope for the future.

I’m really grateful for the opportunity to have volunteered at Nasio Trust and most importantly have had an impact to the children and community of Musanda.

It is really hard to describe how much my trip to Kenya has impacted my life. Having met some of these amazing people I have realised the importance of appreciation of what we have. Not only did my trip leave me with a real sense of accomplishment, but also an increased interest in charity.
