In this program, we mostly deal with children with special needs either born with disabilities or born without any disability but sustained life threatening injuries which leads to their incapacitation during their childhood. Commonly referred as ABLED DIFFERENTLY as a soft language that cannot make them feel sidelined or demoralized, these children are in some instances taken to a center where they are catered for until recovery. In other instances, we have these children in various homes where we sometimes get to visit them in their respective homes. Volunteers get to connect with these children and through a caregiver assist them to walk or perform various exercises that are aimed at making them be in a position to get to their normality with time. It is quite a challenging and exciting exercise all the same but with an aim of making sure that humanity is well taken care, loved and accommodated, it becomes such a joy especially when you assist them and sense improvement or recovery. Sometimes these children requires special equipments that assist them either to move, hear or even see and therefore it is always encouraging if a volunteer will carry anything that can make a difference in their lives. could be a gift of a special chair or anything that they may use. Volunteers also teach them in their various capacities either to write, read and or pronounce words. Sometimes coloring with them and playing as well. This program has an additional fee of USD100 per two weeks to cover for placement logistics. Duration & Price: Week 1 $295 Week 2 $495 Week 3 $695 Week 4 $895 Week 5 $1095 Week 6 $1295 Week 7 $1495 Week 8 $1695 Week 9 $1895 Week 10 $2095 Anyone wishing to have their program extended will be required to communicate the same a week before so as to have it planned and pay 35 USD per day and if more than a week, program fee will be required depending on the extension duration.

Description

Salire Afrika Volunteers is a platform established in January 2020, and is located in Nanyuki which is one of the busiest tourist destinations in Kenya. Nanyuki,a town northwards of Nairobi,borrows its name from the Maasai community,its earliest inhabitants. (meaning 'place of red water' in the Masai language) .It is situated just north of the Equator, and at an elevation of 1,947m above sea-level, is the 14th highest town in Africa. Indeed,it is home to Africa's 2nd highest peak at MOUNT KENYA. The town is strategically sitting on one of the longitudinal imaginary lines, the EQUATOR! As Salire is Italian for Soar, Salire Afrika gives you an opportunity to soar Afrika on the wings of charity and adventure. We aim to create opportunities for volunteers across the world who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of indigenous and local communities living in Kenya! The volunteers' primary destination will be our volunteer houses from where they will be matched to their specific programs and placements either in teaching, youth and sports, child care, special needs, nature conservancies, medical outreach, animal welfare,women and girl/ boy child empowerment. These placements spread across town and its outskirts.
