Watoto is the word for children in Kiswahili, one of the native languages in Kenya. I love children and that is why I decided to volunteer at the Mekaela Academies school project in Ukunda. At this school, children from poor families receive a first class education which offers them the opportunity to find a good job or obtain a university degree. They don’t only teach academics, but also values like tolerance, compassion, social competence and responsibility for the environment. I fell in love with the country, as well as the wonderful people of Kenya who made me feel right at home. With the support of help alliance, this project is possible; it is a wonderful organization.
