In 2011, VLM traveled to Kitale for the first time. Kitale is approximately half a day’s drive from Nairobi. Kitale is a city and this is considered an urban site. In Kitale, VLM facilitate a camp for children ages 6-16. Each week VLM run a separate camp so more children can be accommodated. Camp is held in the mornings and afternoons.
“My experience in Kitale has transformed me into a better person. I know I need to be less wasteful and greedy. I want to be more generous like the parents of the children we worked with and to be as warm as the Daughters of Charity. My faith has grown so much since I arrived.”
“When I came to Kitale I had many questions about what I wanted to do with my life after graduation. This experience reminded me who I am and what I want to dedicated my life to. It has strengthened my faith, and reminded me of the power of prayer and the need to trust.”
