Organization Description
We are a community based organization based in Northern Kenya. We are offering volunteering opportunities with school children, non-school going children, as well as morans and others. The foundation has various programmes consisting of an “Informal Education/Advisory Programme”, a “School Programme”, a “Business Programme” and a “Community Building Projects Programme”. The first involves health, life skills, literacy etc. advise, whereas the second is based at New Dawn Primary School which has a huge lack of teachers, classrooms and resources. It also addresses issues like parents’ ignorance and tries to bring those who are in the bush looking after goats back to school.

As a volunteer you can get involved in teaching in a classroom setting to supplement the deficit of teachers (2 for 5 classes plus nursery), providing one-one extra tuition for especially needy children (standard of most pupils very far behind other parts of country), or organize extra-curricular activities e.g. sports.

This is one of the few volunteering opportunities based in Northern Kenya where cultural beliefs and practices are still very much alive, within pastoral communities (Rendille), and you will get to live within, experience and see people wearing a lot of beadwork all around the clock. On top, the project is located just around a Game Reserve with lots of animals like lions, elephants, antelopes etc.

The fee is very reasonable rate at only $100/week, which directly goes to your upkeep and the project only.
