A Bit About Volunteering in Magadi
Magadi is where Memusi is based. This is our primary base and the place that we have worked for 15 years as at September 2022. Magadi has a total of 21 Primary Schools and as a charity, the programmes that Memusi Foundation supports reaches up to 20,000 children at ECD (pre-school) and Primary Level. When you volunteer in Magadi, you will be volunteering as a group of 5 with a Volunteer Leader and Peter (our lead in Kenya) who will support you during your time with us.
Food will be cooked in a morning and evening in the house that we stay in and lunch cooked / prepared at the school where you volunteer. Every meal is buffet style and you will be able to choose the food that you want to eat.
