  1. Bring along some comfortable, casual and semi-casual clothing: sweat shirts, shorts, jeans, skirts and any other clothing that you would ordinarily wear. Include warm clothing for nights, especially if you volunteer in July and August. Avoid flashy items.
    When out in the community, it is good to follow local etiquette. Female volunteers need to wear pants and/or long skirts.
    Dressing in Nairobi is quite liberal. However, approach it with cultural sensitivity in mind and you will be fine. Please ask when you are not sure what is and is not appropriate.
    Footwear can be hiking boots, old sports shoes or open-toed sandals.
