”Volunteering in Kenya was with no doubt the best two weeks of my life. It's been not just rewarding but an eye opening experience. I have met the most loving people on the planet. I have seen the most astonishing nature. And I have seen a new way of living. It's incredible the impact one can make with just his presence and few dollars. I gave a little to these people but what they gave me is priceless. I feel Complete! Alive! Grateful! And Happy! And I have unforgettable memories of my life.”
