About Us

Karibu (Welcome)

The Rift Valley Resource Centre gives runners and global volunteers the opportunity to experience Kenyan culture in a unique and sustainable way.  This area is home to some of the most accomplished runners in the world. Dirt trails located on the equator at 7000ft elevation provide an outstanding training environment.

Runners aren’t the only people who stay with us!  The Rift Valley Resource Center facilitates a number of community projects that support education, health care, business development, water resources, art, music, and agriculture.  We believe in community development over charity for individuals.  The partnerships we have with local educators, tradespeople, small business owners and women’s groups are the lifeblood of the Rift Valley Resource Centre.  All of our local partners are invested in the projects. Our local partners have gained invaluable skills, management and project development experience, opportunities to start businesses, return to school, get involved with local governance and make changes that are significant to the community.

In a word, if you want to experience true partnerships, make new friends, and have a meaningful travel experience, we think you will treasure your visit to the Rift Valley Resource Centre.  Every visitor has a skill set to share.  We can help you decide what you would like to learn about, contribute to, and most importantly enjoy!
