About the Summer Program

Summer Program participants are able to gain life-changing experiences through their work with the host communities. In addition, we offer the participant an ideal way gain a unique and perhaps once-in-a-lifetime cultural experience of one of Kenya’s diverse cultures. One other unique experience, of living with carefully-selected families at the beginning and end of the program, is also available for those interested.
