About Kenya: Your volunteer adventure will begin in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city where bustling markets and urban culture thrives. Later, travel through the Maasai Mara, dotted with acacia trees and rolling hills, home to Maasai and Kipsigis communities. Nestled in the hills, find your accommodations at Bogani Cottages and Tented Camp.
The rolling landscape is dotted with flashes of red from Maasai shukas, as the sounds of children playing and greetings of “jambo!” fill the air. You will be welcomed into a community in the Maasai Mara and immerse yourself in the region’s beauty as you take time to connect with local families and experience daily life in Kenya.
About the Mission: You will spend your days at Baraka health clinic and hospital. The Baraka Health Clinic is situated in the Narok South District of Kenya and serves approximately 67,000 community members.
The clinic was established by WE Charity to help increase primary health care for the Maasai, Kipsigis and Kisii communities. The permanent health clinic is an extension to, and works in conjunction with, an earlier established mobile health care unit that serves all of Adopt a Village’s partner communities. You will spend one afternoon in the medical outreach clinic within the communities.
