Volunteering in Kenya

I always wondered what am I called for. Although this is an important and necessary question to ask, I realized that it is not about me. It's about the need and because of my call the need takes hold of my heart. I need to respond.
Each and every one of us has a purpose. And we have been given specific gifts and certain desires have been placed in our hearts. I believe that when we align those gifts and desires with our purpose, then we find our calling.
I believe my purpose as a child of God, as a woman, as a follower of Jesus Christ is to serve, to love. I have always had a love for Africa and a desire to work with children in Africa. I love the African people, especially the children, the culture as well as the raw nature. I would love to serve the poor, love the unloved, touch the untouched, reach for the unreached and help the needy.
I have been to Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania and now, my heart leads me to Kenya. The past couple of years I have been actively trying to connect with a ministry where I can serve in Africa. I applied to volunteer at an orphanage in Kenya and I now have the opportunity to do so during March 2018. I now need to raise funds to enable me to go.
R20000 will get me there. This includes airfare, boarding, food, transport and a contribution to a project we will do. R30000 will enable me to bless the orphanage.
Please would you help me to be a blessing and to make a difference.
Thank you in advance.
