Friends Theological College Library volunteering

July 18 – July 23

The Richmond office of Friends United Meeting is shipping a 20-foot container full of donated books for the library at Friends Theological College. Assuming the container arrives on time, there will be a lot of sorting and cataloging to do! (And even if it doesn’t arrive on time, there’s always lots to do in a library.) The group will worship in a local Friends Church on Sunday morning. This option is suitable for those who prefer a less-strenuous program with no long drives.

Start date: 18 July 2020, departing from the Triennial venue after lunch

End date: 23 July 2020, arriving in Nairobi in the late afternoon.

The earliest that you should plan to fly out of Nairobi is 23 July on a late-evening flight. You may also select the option for an extra night or two in Nairobi, so that you begin your international journey fresh and well-rested.
