An amazing experience. The duties consist of daily activities, laundry, cleaning and cooking. I hope I have been useful, the kids are away most part of the day but one tries to get good quality moments with them while they are there. I filled my heart of love, I will miss the good nights kiss. Love you all, hope to meet you again !!

I spent three of the best months of my life in Makuyu children's home! The kids are amazing and they teach you more about love than you can ever imagine! You can live the real Kenyan experience in Makuyu with the delicious Grace's food, learn how wash clothes with your hands and also learn how to teach! It's a amazing experience that you'll remember for the rest of your life! Can't wait to come back!

Makuyu is a lovely place! The kids are wonderful! And the women help you when you need. I booked to stay 2 weeks but I didn't want to leave so I stayed 1 month, got so close to the kids! I am going to miss them a lot! Thank you children's house for everything!

I would say it was one of the most memorable birthday of my life. The moment I came, I felt that these kids would leave a mark in my heart. In such a short period of time, I get to see part of them that I will never forget. They are one of the most genuine kids I've ever met and spending time with them makes my heart really happy. Pauline and the staff are very kind and welcoming. I will definitely come back and stay longer next time. :)
