Description:

The project is aiming to expose its participants and local community to people from different cultural, religious, geographic and socio-economic backgrounds and in so doing provide the opportunity for all to develop a greater understanding of diversity. In the past the program has allowed its participants to learn from people who are different from themselves and integrate in new and unique experiences beyond their own communities. Cultural exchange assists everybody involved to develop positive relationships with others, understand a broader range of perspectives, and develop the knowledge and skills needed for participation in inevitable multicultural society.

Volunteers in this project will participate in a number of activities leading to cultural exposure like Kiswahili Language and cooking classes, home stay, arts and craft, meeting senior citizens for story sharing about the past, visiting cultural sites and ritual sites.
