Volunteers for Peace Takes Me to Kakuma

Thank you, Volunteers for Peace!  For nearly a year, I've  been researching ways to visit Kakuma Refugee Camp in northern Kenya.  After finishing The Good Braider that opens in Juba, Sudan, I began  a small chapter book about a boy who lives in Kakuma when the story opens.  I've watched dozens of documentaries and been on YouTube tours of the camp to write with accuracy.  Now I am able to go in person.  Volunteers for Peace is in Burlington, Vermont and is an international partner with organizations throughout the world. I'll be working with volunteers from many countries in Kakuma School, Turkana.
