Through our partnership with the Global Angels Foundation, a small international development charity, we’re helping to transform the lives of people living in the Tsavo region of southern Kenya by providing the resources they need to become sustainable.
Our partnership provides financial investment in the community and we also send eight staff volunteers each year to work with local residents to help build critical infrastructure for the community and get involved in projects that are changing lives for the better.
James Flavin, lead recruitment partner for our recruitment process outsourcing business, Resource Solutions, shares his volunteering story.
How would you describe your experience of volunteering in Tsavo?
“Absolutely amazing! This experience will be a standout moment for the rest of my life. Not only did I have the opportunity to get involved with a fantastic charity and contribute to the lives of others, but as a bonus I got to see elephants, giraffes, zebra, warthog, lions and more on a daily basis – it was another aspect I will not forget."
Did the experience match your expectations?
"Honestly, it blew my expectations out of the water. I had no idea that the Group had already contributed so much to Global Angels and continues to do so. Furthermore, the families and children we met were so warm, kind and happy despite having so little, it really puts things into perspective."
