Project Kenya

Project Kenya teams work alongside skilled builders, staff and locals with the aim of providing long-term infrastructure to rural communities in the Nanyuki area, northwest of Mount Kenya.

 

Prior to teams departing the UK, we spend time discussing the local community's needs and risk assessing the area alongside our local partners. Once we are happy that the project is a long-term, sustainable option that will benefit the community, our staff will create a working plan of action. Group's receive Expedition Skills Training which prepares them for what to expect whil taking part in Project Kenya. 

 

Once the team arrives in-country, they will meet the local staff who will work alongside them to ensure the project is successful and completed to a high standard.

From the moment of joining the expedition to the time they return, the Explorers will participate fully – from the planning stages to leading the expedition. All participants work together as a team – this is the core of our philosophy.

Current projects include:

  • Renovating a building and turning it into a functioning classroom

  • Helping local students to improve their English

  • Helping on educational programmes in rural medical clinics

  • Constructing fences to help keep school grounds secure

We endeavour to ensure that all of our teams experience real cultural emersion by getting off the “beaten track” and living and working with rural communities. This gives the team an opportunity to experience an unique culture and participate in a worthwhile project. Projects are organised in conjunction with our local partners and may include. Whichever project you work on, you can be sure that you will be adding to the long term infrastructure as well as giving you long lasting memories.
