All donations go directly to the children and young adults I work with in Kenya. This money goes towards nutritional food and vitamins, medical needs, clean water and better living space.
My name is Haley Krocker and as of January 2017 I have received my Master's Degree in Special Education and have obtained my license to teach as an Early Intervention Specialist. In February of 2016, I found myself in a position needing a purpose, a way to give back. Something life changing. Africa had always been dream... children and special needs a passion. After much research, I found an organization that combined dreams with passion and made them a reality. I went through IVHQ (International Volunteers Headquarters), who then connected me with NVS in Kenya. In July of 2016, I spent 3 weeks working with special needs children at Ongata Rongai Special Home Care. At that time there are 25 children who lived there full-time. This is mainly due to the belief in the Kenyan culture every family member must be a working and active member of society. This mentality leaves those with special needs, in most cases, homeless.
2017 and 2018 were amazing years in Kenya from getting children to gain weight, properly diagnosed and medicated all he way to making sure a young girl was going to live a full life.
In 2019 this is now my 4th time going back to Kenya to help children and young adults. This year I am going to a new city, new center, with new children to continue to give and learn from them. I look forward to what this year brings and cannot wait to get back into Kenya and meet my 20+ new kiddos!
