Volunteer Opportunity posted by: African Orphanage
Posted on: September 23, 2013
The volunteer will be involved in HIV/AIDS education and awareness taking campaigns to villages, schools, social and religious institutions. Volunteer intervention is required to help sensitize community on the importance of virus prevention and the need to overcome stigma associated with victims of AIDS.
You will not only be involved in educating the people on how AIDS gets transmitted and how it can be controlled, but also how the community ought to treat people infected with HIV.
No qualification is required, but general knowledge and history of HIV is added advantage. However, volunteers are expected to be flexible and patient as well as possess a passion and love for the poor and HIV-infected people.
Our programs are highly meaningful and in safe locations.
Program start & end date
Our volunteer programs are available all the year round, with flexible start and end dates.
Duration of placement
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 in Kenya.
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
