Karen and David's trip to Kenya
Karen and David Melich volunteered in 2013

The Agape staff were easy to work with from registering to volunteer, transportation to and from the airport, accommodations, and helpful advice for safely experiencing a new country.

She was wonderful, helping us with our daily scheduling, made us breakfasts and dinners as necessary, and supplied us with helpful advice throughout our stay. The highlight of our volunteer trip was indeed visiting the children! We visited, worked and played at the orphanages of Jesus Helpers Children’s Home in Uthiru, Destined Children's Home and Makimei Children’s Home in the Greenbelt area.
