Colchester United Football in the Community programme is returning to Kenya in 2019!
After two successful trips, we will be returning to Nakuru village to reunite with our friends in the African country and to again play our part in helping the children that live there.
You can choose from two volunteer roles whilst volunteering on the trip:-
TEACHING & MULTI -SPORTS
Interaction with the children is at the heart of this role. Activities include: assisting teachers with lessons, reading stories, preparing meals, playing games and sports. The
enthusiasm from children, who are so eager to learn, makes this role so rewarding.
BUILDING & RENOVATION
With overcrowding an issue at the projects, improved facilities are needed to accommodate growing numbers and create more learning spaces for children. Clear progress makes this challenging and rewarding role so worthwhile.
U's fan Abbie Wooldridge, who has been on both trips, said: "Volunteering in Kenya was something I was very apprehensive about as I just didn't know what to expect.
"It turned out to be the best experience of my life so far and I can't wait to return.
"The children in the school made the experience for me. They had a huge smile constantly on their faces and the most rewarding thing was you make a difference to their lives and that's something you'll never forget."
If you are interested in the 2019 trip, then there will be an open evening at the Shrub End Community Sports Centre on Thursday 13th September from 7.00pm.
