Review

This was an incredible 6 weeks and was not at all what I expected. Teaching the Kenyan Entrepreneurs was challenging at times but we were all well prepared in the first week when we had an intense training course.
On the second week we met our Entrepreneurs and gave structured lessons to them. I was nervous about teaching as I hadn't taught before but I soon became comfortable and was able to personally tailor the lessons plans by the fourth week.
On the weekends we had the option to go on excursions such as a rural village stay, camping in rift valley, walks up the Meningai Crater, Visit Mombasa or Nairobi, Safaris in Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara.
If we had enough energy after the busy weekends and hard working days we would sometimes go out in the evening to the local clubs.
I learnt loads on the Balloon Kenya experience, met some inspirational people and had a brilliant time. Most importantly I know my participation was hugely appreciated by my Kenyan Entrepreneurs as many were able to get loans or were able to improve their business without the loan.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
