Fantastic experience

SID Kenya project. It was an awesome experience! The work was meaningful and has really helped me stand out in my field (government and public service). Improvement could be made in pre-departure training and orientation, and connection with previous participants in the program for advice. The team was (and is) fantastic, and the project has the potential to make a huge impact on people's lives.

SID Health - Kenya

SID is a fantastic learning opportunity for any student interested in understanding international development and gaining project management experience. With a focus on local collaboration and long-term relationships, it aims to avoid harmful "voluntourist" practices and encourage meaningful + sustainable community projects. Given the non-profit nature of the work, it is a demanding position that requires a high level of independence, vision, accountability, and maturity.

Great experience

I had a great experience working and living in Kenya for 1Room. It was an excellent work experience and an even better personal one. I learned a lot about business development and policy as well as life in Kenya. I recommend anyone who has the opportunity to take it.
