By: Edita, Co-Director Nakuru
My name is Edita, I am a Co-Director at the IHF Nakuru centre in Kenya. I originally come from Lithuania, but for the last three years I have been living in different European countries due to studies and work. It has been only two weeks since I became part of IHF team at the Nakuru centre. These two weeks were full of new experiences, small cultural shocks and a lot of positive emotions.
It is my first time living and traveling outside Europe. Therefore many things are totally new for me. I am happy to have daily cultural exchanges with the children living in our centre. They also help me learn some basic words in their local Kiswahili language, and in return I help them with their homework.
Working here in the centre is like being part of a big family were everyone tries to help each other and to learn from each other. I myself learn something new everyday from these children and I am inspired by their enthusiasm and dedication to studies. I hope that during my stay here I will manage to inspire them and contribute to them achieving their goals.
