Ollie’s Volunteering Diary: Learning about the Child Sponsorship Programme
In summer 2023, Ollie Passingham spent time volunteering with the Nasio Trust in Kenya. In our “Ollie’s Volunteering Diary” series he shares key parts of his experience. Read more below:
The child sponsorship program is a transformative initiative that provides essential support to vulnerable children and their families.
Through this program, children from disadvantaged backgrounds are given access to quality education, healthcare, and other resources, breaking the cycle of poverty.
During my time at Nasio, I was fortunate to visit my sponsored child, Robert and my sister’s sponsored child, Pauline. By seeing their joy and determination to succeed, really made the program’s impact evident to me.
The Nasio Trust’s commitment to local families and creating a sense of community, left a lasting impression and I am honoured to advocate the impactful work they do.
