I had the pleasure of working with the Great Mission Village while living in Nairobi and would highly recommend volunteering with this organization. Great Mission Village is a grassroots orphanage that has not only done incredible things for the children it serves, but has also improved the livelihoods of members of its community, one of the largest slums in Nairobi. Geoffrey (Otora), the founder, has given everything he has and is to ensure the children of GMV have food, water, shelter and an education, things they did not have as orphans and street kids, before coming to Great Mission Village. The orphanage strives to be self-sustaining and has developed a number of unique revenue generating activities, but needs additional help to continue to fulfill its mission. Due to the sheer number of children it supports, on top of the cost of basic resources and education, the organization needs your help. This is an organization you will not regret getting to know and is sure to capture your heart.
