My name is Kevin, and I am a work study volunteer at the Nakuru center. I have been volunteering at the center for the last month. I was interested in volunteering for many reasons. First, for a long time, I have had an interest in learning more about Africa. My major in school is international studies, with a focus on Africa and the Middle East. After learning about the work that IHF conducts, I knew this would be a worthwhile internship, and indeed it has been. The directors at the center are wonderful. They truly care about the kids, and work very hard to ensure that the kids are not only well taken care of, but that they also have access to school and health care. The directors work with the local community to build political and economic relationships that will continue to help the children and the center as a whole. I have assisted in this process, and it has been a wonderful opportunity. I have learned many things, including the difficulty and exhaustiveness of running an NGO, and how important it is to build rapport with local leaders. I will remember fondly my time with IHF Nakuru.
