Nairobi. Where else would you find skyscrapers and wildlife safaris in the same city?
Make Nairobi, ‘the Green City in the Sun,’ your new home and office! One minute you’ll be working remotely surrounded by skyscrapers and the next, you’ll be walking through an exotic oasis in the middle of the city. Trek Hells Gate National Park and be surrounded by giraffes or sunbathe on the sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean. Come discover one of Africa’s most dynamic cities!
Hajira comes from an Algerian family who immigrated to France, so she’s been a citizen of the world all her life. Becoming part of the Remote Year team gave her the chance to combine her organizational skills with her passion for exploration. What’s next on her bucket list? She’d love to learn to fly a helicopter or plane for even bigger adventures. During your 1-month in Nairobi, you will have a Community Leader like Hajira to support you and a dedicated City Team who will be your best resource on the ground.
Just do it, you’ll be glad you did!
