Latest Reviews

Two months (and counting) with ROF reviewed by Megan D. Sonier
"I have been living with David Omondi and his family in Kisumu, Kenya for the past two months , working with the Riley Orton Foundation (ROF) and their many diverse, but integrated projects. The work that David and Erick are doing is incredible and I am unsure of how to talk about what is going on here while doing it justice. The bottom line is: this is an organization that is thinking strategically about their sustainability, their impacts, and their growth. I have learned so much from David and Erick about monitoring and evaluation, grant writing, fundraising, project leadership, and operations. The Riley Orton Foundation is a shining example of what local leaders using local resources can do to benefit and empower their communities.

The living situation is a home-stay with either David or Erick's family, and it is honestly one of the best components of this experience. Sheila and Eva, their wives, are incredibly welcoming and accommodating to any and all diets and lifestyle preferences. Their daughters, are balls of energy and have made my stay here full of fun and childlike wonder. I have a more than comfortable room of my own, delicious meals, and great company. Not to mention, I have easy access to Kisumu City, which contains a lot of great shopping malls, grocery stores, restaurants, and outdoor markets. Kisumu is also within distance of Nairobi, Masai Mara, Kakamega Forest, and many other attractions in Kenya!

I cannot advocate enough for how wonderful of an experience I am having and I am always happy to answer any questions you might have (megandsonier@gmail.com)!! You can also check out other volunteer reviews on the Akili Girls' Preparatory School or the Maendeleo Hub Facebook pages."

Fantastic experience reviewed by Debbie Maughan
"I was a volunteer with Kipepeo for 2 months. I had the most amazing experience that I will never forget. The founders of the organisation were extremely supportive, they are dedicated to working towards improving the lives of the local population of all ages.
Part of my role was to help deliver health education to ages from 2 years to 60. I felt that I gained so much more from this experience compared to what I gave, I thank the whole community for this. Julius was a special 'star' for me, along with the rest of his team including Jethron and Moses. I was the oldest volunteer they had had at the time ( has anyone beaten the record ?), I was 57. Thank you Kipepeo. "
