St. Aloysius Gonzaga school-Kibera

I'm traveling from New York June 11 to spend about a week or so visiting this school upon invitation from Fr. Terry Charleton who has founded it. I have met him in person and he understand i'm going more or less as a service trip to get to know more about the school and the students/their circumstances. If anyone has any insight i'd appreciate it. He's worried i'll be bored (i doubt that) but i may look for day excursions into the city/environs while i'm there as i've never been before.

never heard of this school and its not locally listed in the directory; so is it in the kibera slums?

this could be quite harrowing, so a break for a day would be good for you!

Agree with Sweetwaters; if you're going to be spending any time at all in Kibera slum you're definitely going to need a break. It'll have a big impact on you. What you're doing sounds extremely interesting. Sorry I can't help with any further info but I haven't heard of the school either.

Sorry,havent heard of the school too...but am sure you'll have a great time doing community work in Kibera,its always fascinating just to be there experiencing slum life and lending a helping hand.

After the visit,you will definately need a break! Take some time and visit some interesting places that arent too far out from Kibera,you might chose to visit either

Sheldrick,Nairobi National park,Girraffe centre,safari walk or Animal orphanage.

All the best and enjoy your time in Kenya:)
