Making a difference doesn’t have to stop once you return home!

Have you ever wondered how you can continue making a difference once you return home from a volunteering expedition? Last year, two of our Camp Kenya volunteers did just that. Inspired by their time in Kenya, Melissa and Isabel wanted to continue the positive impact they had made after they returned home. They decided to launch an ambitious fundraising initiative to provide shoes for the children in the communities they visited. These specially-designed shoes will last each child for years...

Catherine has walked 6 hours 39421 steps to help fundraise!!!

Catherine got straight into her fundraising as soon as she joined her school expedition, kick starting with a sale of unused items.  She then completed a 6 hour and 39,421 step sponsored walk to cover 20miles! As soon as I heard about the expedition in a school assembly I knew I would like to be part of it. It sounds so exciting and yet terrifying in equal measure. But it will be an amazing opportunity that I can’t wait to...
