mount kenya children home is looking for volunteers to assist various tasks at the orphanage
when you volunteer with us you have a chance not only to travel and experience the African culture but also give something back to the community and put a smile on a needy child. You will have an opportunity to play different roles and learn new things at the same time.We have different programs which includes : Children education whereby we take care of their school fees, uniforms, stationery etc orphanage programs which includes providing shelter for the children, food, clothing, and medical expenses. Orphans sponsorship programs this is through finding sponsors for the children. We also have agricultural program which helps to feed the home.
Besides the different programs we have numerous projects currently going on eg environmental projects where we are planting trees to replace the ones which are being cut down in the area to get timber for building. In this case we are also trying to come up with a better method of building eg use of bricks. We also want to increase the number of children in the home, but since we are short on accommodation space we are on course to put up a building which will house more children. It's for this reason we have a ground leveling project where we have already started leveling the building site and we expect to finish at the end of this month.
At Mount Kenya children home we host our volunteers at the home. The program requires a contribution of $ 110 per week per volunteer to cover for accommodation, meals and administrative fees and also some will go towards the current projects. I have also put a summary of the other costs like accommodation in Nairobi in case your flight arrive late etc.
The entire process usually takes a few days, weeks or months depending on your convenient pace of responding to us.
In summary our costs are as follow: 1. US$110 - Volunteer Program costs per person per week which is used for your food, Accommodation, as well as helping in the home.You will also pay an adition of us$355 per person which will cover 2. $65- Transportation from the Airport to the City center 3. $25 - Hotel Accommodation (Bed & breakfast) - (if you arrive in Kenya after 4:00pm) 4. $65- Transportation from Nairobi to the centre 5. $90 Transportation from the centre to Airport (departure)
