This position also requires walking from village to village meeting with sponsored children and their guardian families at respective schools and homes. By so doing you will not only be help to them but also learn firsthand how the local communities live.
Our programs are highly meaningful and in safe locations.

You can volunteer for as little as one week and still get rewarding experience, but you can stay for as long as you wish.
Work schedule & flexibility
We offer flexible work schedule where you can split your time between working on our projects and exploring other parts ofKenya.
Food & Accommodation
3 meals a day and safe accommodation are provided to all volunteers. You are welcome to stay with other volunteers at the orphanage compound or with a host family, but both places give you a chance to learn more about the Kenyan culture and language
Cost to volunteer
Volunteers are required to commit a fee of 140/week that caters for expenses of your meals, housing and support for our community projects. This is payable in cash upon arrival inKenya.
Our friendly staff will come to meet you at the airport on the day you arrive, and escort you to the airport on departure, by a car that we hire. The pre-departure information to the placement and program is done to offer volunteers to have basic knowledge of what is acceptable within the community, work type, general expectations etc.
We welcome volunteers from all over the world, regardless of their faith, age or academic backgrounds
