Building Project for groups in Kenya
- Who?Groups of at least 5
- When?Projects have flexible dates and run all year round
Projects Abroad’s Kenyan building project is located in the idyllic town of Nanyuki, which sits at the foothills of Mount Kenya. It is one of the safest towns / cities in Kenya filled with very friendly locals and lots of foreigners, which also means that English is widely spoken so your group should have no problem socialising with the locals.
The Ol Pajeta conservancy is also located here allowing your group the chance to see Africa’s big 5 animals; the African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard and the White / Black rhinoceros.
Group Building Work in Kenya with Projects Abroad
The building project focuses primarily around the needs of our partners on the ground within the local community, as well as the size of the group and the length of the trip. This could range from building an additional classroom and desks in a rural community's school, building a toilet block for families or building a playing field for children by a local school.
Prior building experience is not necessary as groups will be working alongside local builders who will guide through every process. The project allows groups an opportunity to live in a local Kenyan community working alongside local staff. This ensures a very close community feel as well as allowing the groups to really experience true Kenyan culture.
Living abroad with Projects Abroad
Other activities that your group can get involved in include a clean-up at Lake Nakuru working with local students, a clean-up at local schools, organising sports activities with local children or various care activities involving teaching or arts and crafts activities.
Your group will either stay with local families or in a small local hotel. In the evenings and at the weekends your group will have free leisure time to either explore the Kenyan culture in the local town, go on a safari within the Ol Pajeta conservancy or travel further afield and explore other areas and attractions that Kenya has to offer.
