7 days volunteering Challenge
Anapendeza kicked off a 7 day volunteering challenge for youth with developmental disabilities in Nairobi.
How the challenge works; 10 youth with developmental disabilities will be working in various organisations in Nairobi. The organisations partnered with us to provide job training opportunities for this amazing youths, whose desire is to gain workskills to be integrated in the workplace.
We started the challenge on November 9 at exactly 7 am, Big Foot adventures partnered with us to provide transportation to the various organisations, and we are so grateful for their kindness.
On the 9th of November we got an opportunity to volunteer at Bestlady Cosmetics Godown. It was a really amazing that they all got to work and experience the workplace. The team at Bestlady received us warmly and accommodated us by training us on the various tasks we undertook.
Saturday on the 16th of November we will be volunteering at Decathlon & Nyumbani Children’s Home, Karen. We are thrilled at the practical work skills the youth with developmental disabilities are gaining and the impact it has on them.
We want to say a big THANK YOU to our partners who have come on board: Decathlon, Nyumbani Children’s Home Karen, Bestlady Cosmetics, Kibali Africa, Big Foot Adventures and Special Olympics.
