Four weeks. Four projects. Four adventures!
Consider yourself to be a bit of an adventurer? Always wanted to volunteer and travel in Africa? Our Explorer Program is for you!
This awesome program allows volunteers to not only give back in four separate project, but provides the opportunity to travel and explore four completely different sides of Kenya. Here is what you can expect:
Week 1: City
Stay in Nairobi for a week and conduct outreach programs in Kibera, with street kids and at a HIV program. You will get to stay at our volunteer house and explore the city. At the weekend, you will be taken on the Nairobi Animal City excursion.
Week 2: Beach
You will be lucky enough to live at a beach house in stunning Watamu! Every day, until lunchtime, you will volunteer at a local orphanage, clinic or school. Once the work day is over, you will have time to relax at the beach and even go snorkelling! You will also get to visit the wonderful city of Mombasa!
Week 3: Countryside
One of our main projects in Kenya is within the Internally Displaced People camp in Mai Mahiu. During this week you will stay with a host family and take on one of the many important tasks at the IDP. From construction to teaching and engaging with the local school children. You will get first hand insight into life in a small Kenyan community and see how our bigger projects are run. At the weekend we'll take you to Hell's Gate National Park and Lake Naivasha National Park.
Week 4: Massai Mara
This will be the hardest but most rewarding week of your program. You will stay at a mud hut in the middle of the Massai Mara while building a school for local children. You will get to see a part of the Massai culture that most tourists never get to experience, and you will have to learn how to live as humbly as they do. To top it all off you'll finish the experience with a 3 day safari in the Massai Mara.
