My volunteering in Kenya

Through this blog, I would like to share you my first experience as a volunteer with KVDA (kenyan volunteering development association) which gathers 2 programs (one in a school, and the other in a hospital) and takes place in Mfangano island. I wanted to show you how life here is so different than ours, how people can live with terrible conditions but, yet, be big-hearted persons ... I will also tell you my meetings, my volunteering, and my discoveries so you can follow my adventure!!
