Friends for 30 years
Kenya was our first volunteer posting. We were ‘given’ a family (or maybe they were given us) that would guide and mentor us as we navigated a new culture. They not only taught us how to take local transport, buy at the market, and greet people, but they also became life-friends.
We’ve just returned from visiting them again. Thirty years, a multitude of challenges and life celebrations later, they are family. Volunteering not only gave us the chance to learn, but gave us a family. VICS’ two-year volunteer opportunity gives the gift of time – time to learn, time to grow
