Teaching in Kenya

I spent six weeks in 2011 in Kenya  – during my gap year and before University – teaching ICT and Chemistry in a secondary school, where a large number of the pupils were sponsored by W.O.R.K.  I lived in a small home next to the clinic also sponsored by W.O.R.K, which was basic but very advanced compared to local homes in the area. I gained a huge sense of reward and fulfilment from working at the school and I was able to adapt to the huge lifestyle changes that living and working in the village brought and living on the local diet. Within these six weeks, I developed a variety of skills and attributes; namely tolerance, patience and confidence. I would recommend anybody to go and help out, embrace the culture and experience the wonderful people and country of Kenya.
