DO YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER IN KENYA?
Our primary boarding school Grain of Rice Academy is located in a rural community, where access to quality education is limited and where poverty is common. As a school, our mission is to provide a hands-on education that helps students become critical thinkers within a Christian context so that they know their value in Christ and are able to live out their calling in the future.
Volunteers will learn about the unique features of Grain of Rice Academy while interacting with our students, providing support and encouragement for our teachers when helping in the classroom, and participating in school events and cultural experiences. It is our hope that by the end of this trip, volunteers will have fallen in love with our mission, students, and staff. In turn, volunteers will return to the U.S. with a better understanding of our mission of empowerment in Kenya and become an ambassador for our organization, willing to help us spread our vision, mission and advocacy opportunities to others.
WHO IS THIS TRIP FOR?
The Grain of Rice Project Immersion trip is designed for volunteers 18 and older who have a heart for serving and a desire to connect with our mission. We are looking for open-minded, flexible individuals who are willing to step out of their comfort zone and immerse themselves in a new culture for a two-week period and take that experience back with them.
IMMERSION TRIP DATES:
- late January/early February (electronic application submission due 11/1/2023)
- March (electronic application submission due 11/1/2023)
- June/July (electronic application submission due (2/1/2024)
