Teaching in Kenya

David is involved in the highly successful Teaching in Kenya project.

Seldom do we have an opportunity to make a genuine difference in the lives of people in need. Yet in Africa every single day, this miracle takes place for Encounter Africa Safaris travelers who join in the good work of Encounter Africa Safaris non-profitable arm – Kenya Combined Development Programme!

Below are two youtube videos. 

For additional videos showing Irish teachers working in Kibera please vist Dr David Carey's youtube channel

The first shows the area where much of the teaching takes place. The second is a video of Nairobi.



We need volunteers just like you! To find out more visit the teaching in Kenya offical website:
