Voluntourism improves lives

Every other year, FOY organizes a 15 day trip to the village of Muguna in Western Kenya. It’s your opportunity to see and experience the side of Kenya that tourists don’t get to see. You will learn how tenacious, resilient and resourceful they are amidst challenges with poverty. You will return home completely fulfilled by the work you will have accomplished.
