Volunteer with Children in Orphanage in Kenya

The orphanage work program is highly challenging and rewarding, as you will be changing the lives of orphaned children who rarely receive opportunities to interact with other people. Share love and care for innocent, troubled, and forgotten children, offer them a profound gift.. Working with orphaned children demands lots of patience, as these children's harsh living conditions have often alienated them from society.
A volunteer's responsibility depends on the needs of the orphanage and the skills and interests of the volunteer. Most of the orphanages aim at the provision of education opportunities to orphans; therefore, in most cases, volunteers teach basic conversation English to the children. Volunteers also help in developing creative programs such as art, music, dance, sports, etc. Additional help on day trips, sanitation, cooking, and administration might be requested.
Children Feeding Program
Children at the Center
One of the most wonderful opportunities that work in children orphanage can give you is the chance to share your love and skills with poor orphaned children. Many volunteers have deemed the work life changing. By offering attention and love to children, you are making a real difference in the life of a young person. Whether you have a background in childcare or simply enjoy sharing love with kids, a smile can offer something meaningful to the life of kids deprived of love and care.
As a volunteer, you can help care for children in orphanages. Children are an integral part of all societies around the world and providing adequate care for them is an important part of everyday life. As an international volunteer this type of placement provides an opportunity for active hands-on work as well as a unique cultural exchange opportunity. Many orphanages are community initiated and operated by local community members. Often government support and staff are minimal; therefore the institutions are not provided with the necessary resources to optimize the children's care. The orphanages rely upon volunteers to support their long-term sustainable initiatives through simple tasks and creative energy. Sharing your time with the children, you will be offering them the family love which they have not been privileged with, you will be presenting to them a reason to live as normal as you and us.
You may be assisting with daily routines helping cook and feed the children, playing with them, and devising games for their leisure after school and on weekends. Through all that you do, the individual attention and love that you give the children will last in their memories for a lifetime. The single most important factor in the development of young children is relationships with caring adults. Whether you have a background in childcare or simply enjoy caring for young children, a smile or hug can be a meaningful and long-term contribution.
In addition, the dialogue and interaction with local staff provides a rare opportunity for you to share ideas with them and build morale. The most important attributes needed for these placements are an open heart and a love for spending time with children. In some placements you will quickly pick up on the daily routine while in others you may need to be more creative in coming up with ideas.

Unique Way of Travelling to Kenya in Low Season Holidays

Traveling of-peak means traveling during holidays and not before or after. This is when airfares are lower and there is less road traffic. A kenya holiday safari is only a holiday when you are free from days to day's chores, when you stop the hurry, keep away your working artillery, have some breathing space and time to relax. African Home Adventure Tours and Safaris also adds new meaning to it.

African Home Adventure Tours and Safaris also refers to off-peak Traveling as "Traveling outside rush-hours to avoid overcrowding in public means of transport. Flights tend to less be crowded. Plus you can also avoid commute traffic during this time. Apart from getting cheaper flight rate, accommodations on safari in kenya  and Kenya Adventure Safaris when you travel to kenya during off-peak, you will also get a different perspective on travel holidays to kenya and tanzania, more so the huddling with the masses of tourists doing the busy east africa holidays circuit.

So, one great example of saving money by traveling off-peak, I believe, is by going over to Kenya or Tanzania . Its an assurance that during one off-peak or another, there must be something pleasant for the eyes to celebrate about. You might say! What is the point of traveling to Kenya with the entire story about Nairobi , all the "nairobbery" in the lonely planet? But the fact is there is hardly any such exaggeration. Even if it were Nairobi International Youth Hostel is situated in the outskirts of Nairobi city center and you are also going on a safari outside the city or if you plan to go and have a city tour there are always organized trips where you go with a guide.

Finally, book your flight early to secure the most gains from traveling off-peak. I'm certain that it is possible to reap the reward of the cheapest airfares if you do a once years planning. Another way of looking at it is leaving at a moments notice. This can also make you save a lot from last minute flights, accommodations and Safaris. And do you know one limit about this that makes it possible? Because airlines, hotels and Tour Operators would rather greatly discount their seats and rooms than leave them empty.

Masai Mara Safari is one of the remarkable wildlife attractions that make's Kenya one of the best wildlife destinations in the world. it was awarded its title for its sheer volume and variety of wildlife.

The annual Wildebeest Migration at the Masai Mara is a natural cycle that replenishes and renews the grasslands of East Africa Safaris.

Each July, around millions of Wildebeest gather in the Serengeti to calve. They slowly mass into a huge single herd, until the dry season withers their supply of fresh grass.

There is no better time to visit the Masai  Mara in Kenya than during the Great Migration period. The sound of the approaching herd is a deep, primal rumbling of thundering hooves and low grunts.

In the struggle across the Masai Mara River, many are drowned or swept away by strong currents. The crossing attracts massive crocodiles who each year awaits this season of festive. By September the herds will begin reaching their goal, and spreading out to graze across the expanse of the Mara.

The migration of wildebeest in masai mara can be experienced on early morning game drives in customized safari vehicles, walking safaris with Masai Warrior guides, horseback safaris in areas surrounding the masai mara, or even from hot air balloon safaris  in masai mara over the herds.

Early morning game drives you are most likely able to see all the big five. e.g Lions, leopards, Elephants, Rhinos and giraffes.
