Slide 7:

So, is it just about the money?

Slide 8:

NO! 2 week holistic programme during which you will get the opportunity to see exactly how your money is being spent, and how it is improving the lives of children in the Kisumu district.

Slide 9:

“We believe passionately in alleviating suffering and in working hard to build a better future for children. The best and most sustainable way of achieving this is by working with partners and encouraging active participation of UK volunteers to create a new generation of advocates for children”.

Slide 23:

HOVIC (Hope for Victoria’s Children)

Slide 24:

HOVIC

Slide 25:

The flexible nature of the HOVIC module may not be for everyone, but it really gives you a chance to speak to the boys and learn about their lives directly from them. There is also plenty of opportunity to discuss the issues facing street children and how we support them with HOVIC staff. Spending a little time preparing informal lessons, sports and games, arts and crafts activities or even impromptu dancing competitions means that putting 100% into HOVIC guarantees 1000% back.

Slide 26:

Learn with us: At home & in Kenya. We want to ensure you have the chance to learn about the context before you actually head out there. It’s about giving you a full understanding of the whole situation, not just a 2 week stand alone (albeit a great) experience.

Slide 47:

“Our Vision is a world where all children thrive through health and education . Our mission is to work in partnership with local organisations to deliver school based health and nutrition interventions and to inspire groups of university students to become advocates for change”. KOP isn’t just about a 2 week experience in Kenya. It’s about the experience throughout the year in the UK, it’s about how 2 weeks in Kenya can impact your lives and the lives of the children you are helping. It’s about their future and yours.
