Sunrisas learned about us after we reached out to them. They took it upon themselves to travel all the way from Florida to a rural Kenyan village where we run our abandoned children and orphans home. They have visited twice and worked manually to construct a pre-school.

As a volunteer, all the experiences I have lived with Sun.risas have exceeded my expectations. Every time I work with them I keep growing more as a person. Our last trip to Kenya was one of the best experiences in my life! We stayed there for a month helping build a preschool and a library and everything was just perfect, I will go back whenever I get the opportunity. Thanks to Fabi, Nicole and the rest of the team, you’re the best!

Ayer regresé de un viaje inolvidable, una experiencia llena de amor y de sonrisas donde se empezó a construir un sueño y ahora es una realidad...

Gracias @sun.risas por darme la oportunidad de ser parte de este proyecto. Mi corazón está que explota de amor y felicidad; tuve la dicha de compartir estas semanas con unas personas y personitas increíbles muy especiales cada una con su estilo, swing y personalidad pero complementaron mi ser al 100% todas diferentes pero idénticas en una cosa UN CORAZÓN INMENSO Y NOBLE LENO DE AMOR PARA TODOS, personas que no solo dan todo de si sino que saben lo que es esencial aunque sea invisible a los ojos; theres beauty in everyone and everywhere you just have to look around and appreciate it...

En esta ocación la experiencia fue 24/7 dormimos ahí, compartímos día y noche con ellos, jugamos, bilamos, pintamos paredes, camas, la biblioteca, los veíamos y los escúcuchabamos Estudiar, cantar, buscar los repollos, el Kale, la Papaya, pelar los granos, buscar madera para la Cocina, ayudar en labores del Orfanato cada niño tiene tareas curriculares y extra curriculares lo hacen con cariño y felices sin quejarse, despertámos siempre con el burro, el gallo, la gallina, los perros, el viento, el techo, el murcielago, los niños alborotados; vivimos como ellos en el rescue center y ese compartir tan directo y tan profundo con los niños y con el team creó no solo un bond para siempre sino también una memoria, un aprendizaje y una lección que no se olvidará jamás...

Es muy diferente verlos y compartir un rato a vivirlos; es ahí cuando terminas de darte cuenta que tenemos de más y nos falta mucho que agradecer, valorar y apreciar... Estos niños te enseñan que la vida es una y hay que sonreírle y bailarla al 100% lo único que realmente necesitamos todos, es Amor; no importa el color, la religión, la política, el idioma ... Love is all we need and all we need to give

Es hermoso ver como el 1er Preescolar de @sun.risas está terminandose y más rápido de lo que se pensaba estoy orgullosa de ellas por sus luchas, sus logros, su amor a los que más lo necesitan y por no dejarse tumbar ante los obstáculos. Las admiro.

Gracias @nicolegallib por inspirarme y darme ese empujón el año pasado para poder salir y ver la realidad que hay en el mundo que es más que la fantasía donde vivimos! Gracias a eso terminé de descubrir mi pasión, misión y quiero ser mejor ser humano cada día Asante Sana.

Gracias al team @david11galli @macristinamr @beattyna porque son personas transparentes, auténticas con un mismo objetivo AYUDAR Y DAR SIN RECIBIR; me hicieron reír todos los días, y sin ustedes no hubiese sido tan especial; quiero que sepan que de cada uno aprendí algo y me van a hacer falta ...

Gracias a Sikizana Trust Center porque nos acogió como uno más de ellos nos hicieron sentir como en casa por sus atenciones, comidas increíbles, por el
Amor recibido pero sobre todo Gracias por lo que hacen por estos niños y por preocuparse por su futuro. Solo con la educación se ayuda de verdad es lo único que los va a sacar de donde están y lograrán cumplir sus sueños, así podrán ayudar a muchos más como ellos. Cada niño sabe que quiere ser cuando crezca y se que esos sueños se lograran porque se esfuerzan en ser Mejores para poder lograrlo. Todos podemos poner nuestro granito de arena y ayudar de cualquier manera no solo aquí en todo el mundo no nos cuesta nada. Querer es Poder!

Gracias a estos niños que siempre llevaré en mi corazòn por tanto amor, cariño y por enseñarnos que la felicidad no está en lo material ni en lo que crees que "necesitas" está en las cosas sencillas de la vida, en el día a día, en sonreir, en valorar a las personas que queremos y que están a nuestro alrededor comprtir con ellas; me enseñaron que con tan poquito tienen mucho más que muchos con tanto.

Gracias de corazón a todos los que ayudaron, apoyaron y donaron para que este proyecto se lograra. Por muchos más Love you all to the infinity and beyond.. until next time...

I have known sunrisas since the beginning and I have been able to support some of its projects. I love their vision of wanting to make a better world through the education of the children in need. I just went to Kenya, Africa with this nonprofit as a Volunteer, and my experience was incredibly wonderful and life changing. We were volunteering at an orphanage called Sikizana Rescue Center, in a small town in Kenya called Mtito Andei where Sunrisas currently has three projects: the construction of the town's first library in the elementary school; the first Sunrisas preschool; and the improvement of the rooms in the orphanage where we were. This nonprofit truly believes that all children deserve the opportunity to have an education as a basis for a better future and I am really grateful to be part of this.

Hace dos años pude viajar a una comunidad en Kenya con ellos, vivimos con los niños de una casa hogar y entendimos las necesidades básicas de ellos y de todos los niños del mundo: amor, educación, valores, familia. Ahora un grupo de voluntarios están nuevamente en ese poblado, construyendo el primer preescolar de la localidad. También he participado en eventos en Venezuela, donde las condiciones son realmente difíciles, y llevarles un poco de ayuda y cariño, puede cambiarles la vida.

This is the best organization ever! I traveled with them as a volunteer and everything was super organized and well prepared. I love the work they do helping children around the world. Providing them with food, medical aid, personal care items, and the most important things happiness, joy, and family values. My experience with them was incredible, I never imagined how filled my heart could be by helping others until they gave me the opportunity to join them. And, what I liked the most is that this organization’s main goal is to teach communities and children that education is the most powerful weapon in the world by facilitating them with funds and construction materials for the creation of new schools for those societies lacking them.

I volunteered for Sunrisas during my time in Florida, and all I have to say is that everyone there is full of love and committed to help children in need working together to make it happen. It's a real pleasure to see them in action, the chain they create to fundraise and collect donations is just positively overwhelming!

I've been working for this non-profit for more than a year now and I really love what they do and the passion they do it with.
Teaching each and everyone of their volunteers the values of commitment, understanding, humbleness, and empowering them to become better people; and putting together thoughtful projects that look the way to teach something to everyone involved.

Best non profit. Not only helps people and kids in need but also raise awareness within privileged kids about how they can also give and share

I've always been the type of person that wanted to help others but never found the time to do it, after attending one of Sunrisas' event that changed. You can see the difference you are making with your own eyes, and at the same time you also learn, and have fun while doing it.
