Hakuna Matata

My journey in Kenya, summary of my time here.
Since the first day I went to the schools, Olives and Nyota, I fell in love with both of them. The kids sheer their joy and energy in a way that invites you to take part in that joy with them. I have found here the brightest smiles I have even seen in my life. Smiles that have fulfilled my experience, smiles that invite to live that of life where “Hakuna Matata” is the number one slogan.

I have enjoyed every step of the way of my teaching; from the nerves of meeting my class and giving the first lesson, to Madam Aya’s last art lesson: writing thank you letters to Madam Mariana.

Learning 22 different names was a complete challenge for me. As the goal of enabling all the children to continue onto university may still be far away, the summed effort of all the volunteers will make a huge difference. The individual lives of the children. Talent and will to learn makes its way into every classroom.

All in all, teaching the crazy standard 3 has been amazing! I will miss their euphoric “Good morning Madam” as I stepped into the classroom.


Even though I was here as a teacher, I have learnt many life lessons which I will forever taste.
