RKF as a whole is an amazing team to work with. I recently volunteered for the July workshops and i must say i was quite impressed, not just by the organization or the workshops, but generally also by the way they conduct themselves. The people correlate and coexist its almost impossible to know whether or not they've worked together for a while now! I cannot wait for my next experience.

It was my first time working with RKF and it had been an incredible experience.
It feels great to have a positive impact on people's life and RKF made it possible.
I'm looking forward to working with them again.

Empathy... A child getting called by name and not by class placement. A child playing new games, and slowly getting comfortable with making mistakes around adults. Empathy that's what RKF invokes. And that inspires to do more.

I was introduced to the RKF by one of my friends earlier this year, and so I volunteered for it in July/August. I had a great experience whilst engaging with the young children at the schools we visited. The volunteering team was brilliant, and very enjoyable to work with.
All in all, RKF is a fantastic organization and I wouldn’t hesitate to volunteer again.

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.
