Who can attend Wildman mission trips?

Any Wildman employee with their family members pending supervisor approval. The suggested age to bring children is between the ages of 10 and 12 or based on their desire and/or maturity level.

What about transportation?

Wildman provides transportation via a bus or large van with the groups traveling together.

What will I be doing in Kenya?

The group will put together a VBS program to do with the children in the homes we serve. We will enjoy playing volleyball, soccer, football, rugby, or sports activities during the day. We will enjoy serving with our partners if they have a need with their organization during our stay and participate in any events Kutoa Project is putting on during that time. Plan to perform home visits with our staff or kiddos, enjoy a safari, visit markets, and other tourist experiences. We will attend church and worship service together in the evenings.

Are the trips safe?

The places we will travel are generally crime-free during the daylight hours. A few things to remember are to leave expensive and/or fancy jewelry at home, do not walk down the public streets carrying anything valuable in your hand (example: cell phone), and do not leave the hotel without reporting it to a team leaders. It is critical that you never travel alone, but in small groups to ensure your safety. Should conflict occur, please walk away politely while saying I’m sorry to resolve the situation quickly.

Who do I ask if I have more questions?

Please contact Audrey Russell, Human Resources Director at Wildman, with any mission trip related questions at 574-306-4646 or e-mail her at audrey.russell@wildmanbg.com.

What type of lodging do you provide in Kenya?

Depending on the group size, the team will either stay at a Guest House or a safe and secure Air Bed & Breakfast.
