This year coming back to Nairobi feels like a homecoming. On the plane ride here, I found myself educating first-timers about the country's beauty, the people, and the state of education. And as I exited the airport into the warm embrace of old friends and familiar scents, I remembered how much of an impression this place left on me. Being back in Kenya just reaffirms the reason why Destination Teach works so hard to further our mission. This place has an undeniable charm that will tantalize anyone that crosses its borders.
This year, a wonderful group of travelers will join me, and I am so excited for them to experience this country and become a part of this movement. Together we will change the face of American volunteerism abroad. Together we will dig deeper into the plight of underserved communities. Together we will uplift the educators who have been working tirelessly with minimal support.
Right now, there is no place I'd rather be...
