Come to Kenya and help raise funds for the community
Pompey in the Community has teamed up with Kenyan Adventure to offer supporters an opportunity of a lifetime, spending 10 days working with a range of community projects in a developing area of south-western Kenya.
From Monday, June 3 to Friday, June 14 2013, a group of Pompey supporters will form the charity’s first-ever group trip to sub-Saharan Africa to give something back to the international community, while enjoying a unique travel experience.
From football coaching and building work to teaching in schools and community work with children, there are a number of project roles to choose from and the trip will require dynamic, enthusiastic individuals to help us achieve our goal to improve the lives of people less fortunate than us.
You do not need to be qualified in your chosen field – you will be provided with teaching/sports coaching resources prior to departure to support you.
African Adventures organises the entire trip from pre-departure meetings and flights to transport and accommodation, all major parts of the trip are organised for you. The group will work and stay together at a community project based in Nakuru, three hours north-west of Nairobi.
The trip also aims to raise £15,000 for Pompey in the Community, which will provide the registered charity (number 1126118) with vital funds to continue supporting local people in the Portsmouth area.
Included in the trip is an incredible Rift Valley Adventure Day, a three-part adventure day comprising of a morning game drive in Lake Nakuru National safari park – the second most visited in Kenya – a stop off at the earth’s equator and an adventure trail at Thomson Falls near Nyahururu – one of the deepest waterfalls in East Africa. There is also a window of opportunity to visit an elephant orphanage and giraffe centre in Nairobi.
Individuals are asked to raise approximately £2,000 in order to take part, of which £736 will be raised for the Pompey in the Community (after Gift Aid).
African Adventures has a comprehensive guide to fundraising for all volunteers although you may need to organise your own fundraising. A deposit of £150 will be needed to secure your place. Allow extra for visas, travel insurance and medical expenses.
Anyone that is registered by 15th December will be invited to the Yeovil Town game on 29th December and presented with a signed ball at half time to help with the fundraising.
We will be holding an open evening on Tuesday, November 27 between 6pm and 7pm at the Pompey Study Centre for more information.
