Description
You'll reach the hard-to-reach. We are a small, locally run, Kenyan company that aims to provide direct volunteer support to the local NGOs and schools that don't have their own effective means of reaching you.
You get a greater value for your money. As a locally-based company, our costs are extremely low in comparison to foreign-based volunteer programs. Check out our low Volunteer Costs.
You benefit from our partnerships. You can choose from a wide range of projects to suit your needs. They are not just names on a list; we know the staff and have visited all the projects in person. Check out our Volunteer Projects.
Your opinion counts. Each project offers you a distinctive chance to make an impact on decision making and program development.
You will be immersed in Kenya culture. You'll be living in a typical Kenyan neighborhood working at a NGO with local Kenya staff. Our staff will explain the basics of Kenya culture to you and are always willing to answer the smallest or largest of questions on Kenya culture.
You determine your experience. Our programs offer freedom and flexibility, allowing you to utilize your specific skills in a variety of ways. Once you realize where your help is needed, the potential for positive change is limitless. We offer volunteer, internship, and research opportunities.

Kenya Volunteer Volunteer was born out of a genuine concern for the suffering that is apparent in the area where we live and work. We observed the growing popularity of travelling abroad to do volunteer work in Kenya and we wanted to use this trend to benefit the underprivileged population the NGOs in our region serve.

We found that funding restraints, language barriers, and housing shortages meant that many small, local NGOs had to reject potential volunteers because they had no way to manage them. Additionally, we were disheartened to see the huge prices attached to many larger volunteer placement organizations when we personally knew how affordable living and working in Kenya can be, especially for volunteers coming from abroad.

KVT was created to make an avenue through which international volunteers can come and offer their services. We comprise of a small group of like-minded local people who aim to identify and place international volunteers where they are most needed: in emerging, small scale, grassroots organizations that lack the necessary means and organization to attract and accommodate international volunteers, but would benefit greatly from outside assistance and knowledge. There are a multitude of local projects here that are desperate for voluntary help – whether it is from skilled or unskilled volunteers
