Volunteer Trip Diary

"""" I went on the '08 volunteer trip looking forward to helping these poor children.  I did help them. But I came home from the trip surprised that they helped me more than I ever helped them. Because after this wonderful trip, I will never look at my life in the same way again, I really appreciate every single day of my life so much more than I did before.  It really IS a trip of a lifetime."
Maureen Timony, '08 & '11 Kenya Project Trip Volunteer,
Rochelle Park, NJ. USA

Please ask yourself:
      *Have you ever wanted to teach your children to be grateful for all the things they have (like clean water, food and a home) by showing them how so many children on the other side of the world don't have any of basic things they have?  
     *Do you belong to a profession, church, temple, or community group that believes in the importance of helping people in the world who have so much less than we have?  
     *Would you like to make a much needed donation to an organization where 100% of your donation goes to the people needing help, without any of your money going to administrative or overhead expenses? 
      *Have you ever dreamed of going on a volunteer trip of a lifetime to help children and yet also have time to go on safaris to see the amazing wildlife in Africa?
       If so, the Maywood Rotary Kenya Project is perfect for you!

Maywood Rotary Kenya Project's Mission Statement

   The Maywood Rotary Kenya Project's goal is to help just one Maasai elementary school at a time with urgently needed help.  Our priority is to offer help as a partner to the school while respecting Maasai culture and fostering financial independence wherever possible.
   We also provide a valuable low cost Volunteer Trip experience for Americans to do "hands on" work with the Kenyan children each year.  

Changing the world,

          one Maasai child at a time.  


KP Director Kevin Williams with Nkenijii School Children in May

 The Maywood Rotary Club Foundation is a 501c3 non profit organization.
Because Maywood Rotary Club pays all expenses, 100% of your donation goes to Kenya.
