Working with RKF was a fruitful experience not only for the children we help but also for the volunteers. In one of the events, we set up different workshops out of with the dental workshop was my favourite. We taught children at a school in the slums of kisumu how to maintain good oral hygiene . It was educational but also fun. They remembered the brushing technique through a song we taught them. Definately, one of the most fulfilling moments, watching the kids smile with happiness and gratitude. RKF has to be the most organized , well planned NGO I have worked with!

What a sight it is to see such a lovely team help out the little ones. And how the little ones took to them you'd think they've known each other since birth. The RKF group ruly makes a visible and tangible difference in the places they work. They've shown the meaning of what it is to truly care and I wish upon them eternal blessings.

I really enjoyed my time working with the RKF! The team was fun, empathetic and as involved as one could be with the children we were privileged to work with. The best organization in the whole of this region by far and also the most efficient. I can't wait till I get a chance to work with the RKF team again, they made it feel like home.

I volunteered for RKF recently and I can say it was one of the most memorable and enlightening experience,RKF is so dedicated towards everything it says and it does way more than it says. If we had more NGO's that were as hardworking and as honest as RKF is, the future of our country would be in good hands.

The word nonprofit is enough to tell the story. While working with the RKF foundation I learnt change in this world can be brought by a person who is truly willing to help. Dedication is also another word that truly describes the RKF foundation.

I recently became an active member of The Rahul Kotak Foundation after having volunteered for some workshops.
Being a part of this foundation has been the best experience of my life because it has taught me how to be empathetic, kind and helpful to those in need.
RKF is a platform dedicated to try make the world a better place and to simply improve lives, which, I believe is the most important and necessary objective, and I can say without a doubt that RKF is definitely doing justice to that motive.

RKF is made up of a team so passionate and enthusiastic, every opportunity I get to work with them is a blessing! They understand the core of the projects and are equally dedicated to the success of both short term, and long term projects. The progress made thus far is remarkable and it's only onwards and upwards from here!

The dedication the foundation has is just amazing! They are all very kind and welcoming. They put in so much effort to help out in areas the government doesn't. I was a volunteer and I have to say they did a very good job. Organised, Well managed and just connected with the kids. My experience with Rahul Kotak foundation has been phenomenal mostly with one of the founders Mansi, a very lovely being.
