Rams in Kenya is back for 2022 - and you can play your part!
Rams in Kenya is an annual trip to the schools in the slums of Nakuru, Kenya, which invites Derby County fans, Derby County Community Trust supporters or simply anyone with an interest to take on the trip of a lifetime and improve life for children in the project’s five partner schools.
Since 2012, over 300 volunteers have taken on the adventure, supporting partner schools and their pupils to flourish.
Facilitated by African Adventures, the trip benefits the Derby County Community Trust and the impoverished areas around Nakuru in Kenya.
The trips, scheduled for 2020 and 2021, were unfortunately unable to go ahead due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but full plans are in place for 2022 to restart the adventure and help those who now need the support more than ever.
Rams in Kenya work in five partner schools to improve sanitation, build new classrooms or facilities and increase safety measures. They also support teaching and physical activity within the schools.
The schools Rams In Kenya work with are:
* Mama Kerry
* Chaddy Mission
Volunteers will also get the opportunity to take part in the Rift Valley Adventure Day which is a visit to the Nakuru National Safari, Thompson Falls and the Equator. There is also the chance to visit the Menengai Crater, an elephant orphanage and the Giraffe Centre in Nairobi.
