The last week of September 2014, Anahuac University, one of the most recognized private universities in Mexico because of the social impact, in its 50 anniversary developed an Internacional Social Commitment Congress, CICS, which had the goal to encourage young people to be the change makers the society needs
Key Note Speakers such as SG Kofi Annan, Dr. Patch Adams and Maickel Melamed from Venezuela, gave the 3 days that the Congress last, their testimony of how they had change the world and how young people can do it so.
In behalf of Kenyan international social organizations, Irene Wairimu was able to participate in the Cics in Mexico City to talk about her experience founding Vicda and how they had been changing the reality of Kenya and the way the world perceives Africa, offering them an integral opportunity to volunteer in Kenya.
One of the cultural activities that were part of the Cics was a photographic exhibition of the experience of being a volunteer in Kenya.
Where we print the emotions, feelings of each volunteer in this unique experience.

Great news! We’ve just announced the dates and itinerary for the 2013 Voluntourism trip! This is a fantastic opportunity to both see the beautiful land of Kenya and to serve. Be sure to check out trip details and feel free to contact us with any questions!
This trip is perfect for:
Families! We intentionally scheduled the trip between Summer Camps and the start of school so that families can participate. This is a fabulous and safe way to show your children another part of the world and for them to make lasting memories!
Teachers! Again, the scheduling of this trip allows teachers to be a part of it! More than half of the camp residents are children and we are seeking enthusiastic teachers to be a part of this experience!
Second time travelers! You may have gone on a safari in Kenya or another part of Africa, but this is a new experience for most travelers – even seasoned ones.
Professionals with limited time off! We pack a lot into this weeklong trip, this is a great way to both see and experience Kenya with just one week off of work.
Doctors! It’s a medical camp after all, your skills will certainly be put to use!
VICDA has worked with GVN (Global Volunteer Network) for several years and their relationship has evolved from a simple volunteer program into so much more. Eat So They Can is a program that is run by GVN Foundation. Money is raised from dinner parties that are hosted all around the world. Teams are then sent to various countries where GVN is active and the funds are distributed in the form of food, medicine, building materials and other supplies. Take a second to read about the recent distribution in Kenya that helped many of VICDA’s projects including Happy Life Children’s Home, Cheryl’s School, the IDP programs and Shelter Children’s Home.
