Ben's trip to Kenya

Ben Leftwich volunteered on our teaching programme in Kenya in June 2013

I had heard about Agape Volunteers through a university advertisement, the prospect of doing something different and fulfilling for summer was exciting for me, so I applied.

All of my expectations for a memorable summer were met and more. There were many projects to get involved with but my main placement was teaching at a local school. I found this extremely rewarding and also challenging since I was in charge of a class of 20 children 5 days a week. However, this allowed me to really get involved with their education and form some lifelong bonds with the children.

All of my expectations for a memorable summer were met and more.

One of the uncertainties for me before leaving was the other volunteers: were there going to be any others, and if so, would I get along with them? These worries were dashed instantly when I met everyone. I made friendships with a large number of other volunteers from all over the world, some which I fully intend to meet again.

The Agape staff were very helpful and able to answer any questions that I had regarding my placement or Kenyan differences.

I would highly recommend volunteering through Agape for a memorable, rewarding experience which you'll never forget!
