"""" I went on the '08 volunteer trip looking forward to helping these poor children.
I did help them. But I came home from the trip surprised that they helped me more than I ever helped them. Because after this
wonderful trip, I will never look at my life in the same way again, I really appreciate every single day of my life so much
more than I did before. It really IS a trip of a lifetime."

Please ask yourself:
you ever wanted to teach your children to be grateful for all the things they have (like clean water, food and a home) by
showing them how so many children on the other side of the world don't have any of basic things they have?
*Do you belong to a profession, church, temple,
or community group that believes in the importance of helping people in the world who have so much less than we have?
*Would you like to make a much needed donation
to an organization where 100% of your donation goes to the people needing help, without any of your money going to administrative
or overhead expenses?
*Have you ever dreamed of going on a volunteer trip of a lifetime to help children and yet also have time to go on safaris
to see the amazing wildlife in Africa?
the Maywood Rotary Kenya Project is perfect for you!
On September 1st, we returned from
a very productive volunteer trip at Nkenijii school in Kenya. Thanks to donors like you, we built a nursery and kindergarten
classroom, treated over 400 children for ringworm, fungus and intestinal parasites, and taught the children. Read all
about it and see our pictures by pressing the Trip Volunteer Blog (the bottom button on the navigation bar to the left).

Maywood Rotary Kenya Project's Mission Statement
The Maywood Rotary Kenya Project's goal is to help just one Maasai elementary school at a time with urgently needed
help. Our priority is to offer help as a partner to the school while respecting Maasai culture and fostering financial
independence wherever possible.
We also provide a valuable low cost Volunteer Trip experience for Americans to do "hands
on" work with the Kenyan children each year.
