Karla is a bright young girl. During the last months she showed more and more interest in fine arts and developed great skills in drawing, watercolour painting and finger knitting. With great pleasure she listens to the stories of her teacher. In the evening she tells these stories to her parents without forgetting even a small detail. Her father is a construction worker and her mother is a housewife. After school, Karla spends a lot of time with her younger sister at her grandparents, with whom she has a very close relationship.

Job (4)

Jobs family comes from Western part of Kenya from the Luhya tribe. His father is a casual labourer and so is his mother. The minimal unstable income is hardly enough to feed the family. The family lives in a small single roomed house made of iron sheets about 5 km from the school. The house has electricity connection but no water. They buy water from vendors nearby. The family faces some challenges since they live amongst people who can speak and hear. The communication barrier makes it hard for them to interact and survive since their child Job who can hear and speak is still young. Job likes playing with his fellow classmates. Job comes to school in a bus which is an offer for Kindergarten children in the school.

Apply for a voluntary service

Liebe*r Bewerber*in,

wir können derzeit nur Bewerbungen aus der Europäischen Union annehmen.

Aufgrund der aktuellen internationalen Reisebeschränkungen können wir momentan leider keine Bewerbungen von Freiwilligen außerhalb der EU annehmen. Sobald die Reisebeschränkungen aufgehoben werden, ist eine Bewerbung wieder möglich.

Dear Applicant,

Currently we can accept applications from the European Union only.

Due to current international travel restrictions, we are unfortunately unable to accept applications from volunteers outside the EU at this time. As soon as the travel restrictions are lifted, applications will be possible again.

Chère candidate, cher candidat,

Nous ne pouvons actuellement accepter que les demandes émanant de l'Union européenne.

En raison des restrictions de voyages internationaux, nous ne pouvons malheureusement pas accepter pour l'instant les candidatures de volontaires en dehors de l'UE. Dès que les restrictions de voyage seront levées, il sera à nouveau possible de présenter une demande.

Estimado solicitante,

actualmente sólo podemos aceptar solicitudes de la Unión Europea.

Debido a las actuales restricciones a los viajes internacionales, lamentablemente no podemos aceptar en este momento solicitudes de voluntarios de fuera de la UE. Tan pronto como se levantan las restricciones de viaje, las solicitudes serán posibles de nuevo.
