We hope you are enjoying the holidays and that you found our last post on why you should volunteer over the holidays helpful.

2020 is just around the corner and we would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who has shown us support. We have managed to achieve so much this year and we couldn’t have possibly done it by ourselves.


To all the host families that have worked with us throughout the year, thank you so much for providing a home away from home to our volunteers. Your hospitality goes a long way in contributing to the success of these volunteers as they are able to feel welcomed in the community.

To the communities, thank you so much for allowing the volunteers to be part of you. It is not easy to allow a stranger into your lives which is why the trust that you have in us is not taken for granted.

To the volunteers, thank you so much for taking time away from your daily norms to come to Kenya and share what you have with people who may not be as privileged. You have truly made a big impact in the communities you spent time at this 2019 and have in more than one way touched the lives of the individuals you have interacted with. We hope to see more of you in 2020 as we have so much more lined up.

To the CIVS management and staff, thank you for your cooperation in coordinating all volunteering/ community development projects and activities. Without you, there would have been no CIVS.

As the new year fast approaches, we hope you all take time to

  • acknowledge the achievements you have made in 2020,
  • take stock of the lessons you have learnt
  • move past the mistakes you have made
  • take time to recharge, but most of all
  • remember to ser realistic goals for 2020, those that are actually achievable so that you actually see progress.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday festivities and we at CIVS hope to see you healthy and happy in 2020.
