Description
Our Volunteer programs are a great opportunity for you to travel to Kenya and experience true Kenyan culture, while also greatly improving the lives of children who desperately need your help. Our volunteer programs usually comprise of 2-5 volunteers per visit from a variety of nations and backgrounds. Visit our Facebook page for more updates. We accept volunteers throughout the year.

Anyone can be a volunteer - teachers, sports activists, Fundraisers, engineers, photographers, web designers, doctors, students, carpenters, travelers, mothers, fathers, etc. We welcome anyone who is motivated.

Our group is comprised of both men and women, old and young, and we all work together in order to benefit the local children and hopefully ultimately benefit the greater world. Many of the children that we support are orphans and vulnerable children, and we attempt to provide them basic education, food, and any resources that they need in order to survive and prosper.

At our volunteer programs, volunteers normally engage in a variety of activities including (but not limited to) farming, community work (helping the elderly in their homes), class teaching (grade 1-8), sports playing, feeding the young children within the school, garden preparation, construction work, teaching music, caring for the donkey, goats, and cows, etc. All work that you do helps our group to continue to be functioning as best as possible in order to help the children. Volunteers work for about 5-6 hours a day during the week.

Volunteers live with the host family (homestay). Unfortunate we don't have running water and electricity though we have treated water as well as solar powered electricity. Volunteers are given a chance to experience a very authentic African lifestyle in all aspects. It is a great chance for you to be a part of a different culture and to learn about how others live their lives.

Volunteers who attend our normal volunteer programs are expected to pay a small fee of $7 each per day in order to help support themselves and the program while they are here. Normally we appeal to our volunteers to give at least a small donation to the project.
