Cardiff City Community Foundation has teamed up with Kenyan Adventure to offer supporters an opportunity of a lifetime, spending 10 days working with a range of community projects in a developing area of south-western Kenya.
From 17th – 27th September, a group of Cardiff City supporters and ex-players will form the charity’s first-ever group trip to sub-Saharan Africa to give something back to the international community, whilst enjoying a unique travel experience and representing Cardiff City overseas!
From football coaching and building work to teaching in schools and community work with children, there are a range of project roles to choose from and the trip will require dynamic, enthusiastic individuals to help us achieve our goal to improve the lives of people less fortunate than us. You do not need to be qualified in your chosen field – you will be provided with teaching/sports coaching resources prior to departure to support you.
The trip also aims to raise £20,000 for Cardiff City Community Foundation, which will provide the registered charity (number 1128443) with vital funds to continue supporting projects and local people in the South Wales area.
Included in the trip is an incredible Rift Valley Adventure Day, a three-part adventure day comprising of a morning game drive in Lake Nakuru National safari park – the second most visited in Kenya – a stop off at the earth’s equator and an adventure trail at Thomson Falls near Nyahururu.
Individuals are asked to raise approximately £2,000 in order to take part, of which £832.00 will be raised for the Cardiff City Community Foundation. The Foundation will be holding a number of fundraising events to raise awareness of the trip and help participants raise the required amount.
The official trip launch takes place at Cardiff City Stadium on March 1st at 7.30pm, where you can find out all the information you need be a part of this exciting opportunity! Also included in this launch will be behind the scenes tour of the stadium.
