This picture makes me smile. This country gives me hope and these children fill my heart and soul with love. Teaching in Africa changed my life; opened my eyes and ears to suffrage and most importantly instilled a quality of humbleness into my soul. This was a magical experience that I'll forever cherish. #teaching #English #Africa #Kenya #slum #IVHQ #volunteer #giveback #share your #knowledge and #resources #travel
