Volunteers from the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) have been supporting the local community in Nairobi over the last few years.

BATUK is a training support unit of the British Army located in Kenya under long-standing cooperative agreements with that country.

The Unit have been working hard to help the local community by volunteering in orphanages, schools and the slums.

In addition, the team have raised enough money to sponsor a child through boarding school.

Recently, the Unit have been involved in a number of volunteer projects in Kenya, including renovating a Laikipia dispensary, supporting the Tusk Safaricom Marathon by distributing water at the halfway point across the Lewa Conservancy and playing in the 2-day Rhino Cricket Tournament.
