CHADDY MISSION SCHOOL is a young local organization from Nakuru, Kenya. Chaddy offers non-fee paying primary education to the underprivileged children from the Mwariki slum in Nakuru where they are currently hosting near 240 students. In addition, Chaddy has a successful feeding program which provides the children with two healthy meals a day. The school also provides counselling to both parents and children, in matters such as nutrition, health and HIV/AIDS. What makes Chaddy unique is that they run two small businesses for which they employ the students parents. This way they do not only provide jobs but they also ensure that they will be a self-sustaining organization in the near future.
March 2014 was my second visit to this fantastic organisation. I first volunteered at Chaddy Mission in June 2013 and it was an unforgettable experience. Everyone at the school are so welcoming and would do anything to help settle me in for my visit. I was able to be involved in classrooms with the children, cooking on the kitchen with Mama Mary and took some time to learn some Swahili, which the staff were more than happy to help with! Pastor Geoffrey is now someone I would consider a close friend who I keep in regular contact with. On my second visit in March 2014 he arranged transport, accommodation and even arranged for a friend to drive us around the safari park! I cannot recommend this enough to anyone! It is truly an opportunity to engage and explore with a beautiful new culture, meet wonderful people and explore the beautiful safari and villages! I will be travelling back very soon!
