Hello, my name is Keegan Giles and I am aiming to go to Kenya in the summer of 2018 with Camps International. The expedition will last 4 weeks, with 2 and a half weeks spent doing community work which could be anything from building tables and chairs to go inside schools, laying foundations for a community hospital, or even building houses for villagers. We will also be visiting local farms that are inside the Tsavo National park to help put up long lasting deterrents (like a fence of Cd's or led's) to stop the animals in the park from destroying their crop. Half a week is spent cleaning beaches along the coast of Kenya because the coast there is heavily polluted with washed up plastics which can be extremely dangerous for the wildlife there. The rest of the expedition is spent as free time, a 3 day safari in the Tsavo national park, and a 4 day hike around Mount Tsavo.
I am most looking forward to the 2 and a half weeks community work. This is because I will get to help the local people as well as getting to know them and their way of life. We are also given the amazing opportunity to meet a Masai tribe, and learn some Swahili. The expedition as a whole will be a fantastic life experience and also an eye opener to see just how privileged we are in this country. Hopefully, the work myself and fellow school mates do whilst we are out in Kenya will benefit the people and nature there, so that they can have better lives and develop even more.
Thank you for reading this bio, and I hope that you can spare some money to help me get towards my goal of £3690. Sharing this page on Facebook or any other social media would also be just as helpful as donating, since the more people that see my page the more likely I am to raise more money. If you have any further questions, please feel free to message me on Facebook, Instagram (@keegan.giles) or email (email@example.com) and I will try to reply to you as soon as possible!
Thank you once again, Keegan.
