For the fifth year running a group of Derby County volunteers have departed on a Kenyan Adventure.
Derby County Community Trust have again teamed up with African Adventures to offer a group of Derby County fans and staff the chance to volunteer in rural areas of Kenya.
The trip, which will run from 28th May to 10th June, will see the Rams’ Kenyan Adventure team will spend 14 days volunteering at St. Trizah, Destiny and Ungana Schools, all based in the slums of Nakuru, Kenya’s fourth biggest city, helping to improve the schools and surrounding communities in any way possible during their visit.
The trip also involves an Adventure Day with a visit to the equator and the Lake Nakuru National Safari Park. Volunteers can enjoy the wide ecological diversity and varied habitats of Kenya that range from Lake Nakuru and the surrounding picturesque landscapes.
Ahead of the trip, Paul Newman, from the Derby County Community Trust said: “Our annual trip to Kenya to support the children at Ungana, Destiny and St Trizah schools has now become part of the fabric of what our Community Trust offers.”
“It’s is incredibly rewarding and humbling for all the volunteers to experience such a different culture whilst offering long term support to the wonderful children and staff whose spirit continues to amaze every time we visit.”
“Furthermore, it another wonderful example of how Derby County can reach and inspire communities, however far they may be away.”
“We have a great group embarking on the 2016 trip and we are determined to make it the most successful year to date!”
