Kenya Volunteers Activities

1. Volunteer In Orphanage in Kenya

It is so gratifying to choose to spend a more meaningful vacation contributing your valuable time working with orphaned children in Kenya. In collaboration with our local partners in Kenya, we invite enthusiastic volunteers to provide care and support to underprivileged children in Kenya. Help is needed to improve the living conditions and provide stimulating educational activities for the children.

Our volunteer in orphanage in Kenya project is the most popular project  and placements are always rewarding. During this project, volunteers work on the front lines to feed and provide assistance to these forgotten little ones. Children in these centers need your special encouragement to restore their hope for a meaningful future. Your work in this project is very challenging but the children share so much appreciation with the volunteers.

Most of the time volunteers will stay with the orphans for an at-orphanage stay, much like a family member. Although this is not an official teaching placement, you may teach conversational English during your stay.

Volunteers support recreational and artistic activities with the objective of entertaining learning and help is needed with organizing and developing sports activities for the children. Volunteers help in the kitchen serving lunch in the dining room and assist with location-specific duties like routine maintenance, construction, etc.

Our volunteers also engage the children with educational activities and games, and may be asked to help with various health or sanitation needs. Help is also needed in the kitchen preparing meals and/or washing dishes and clothes. Volunteers' storytelling skills will be put to good use inspiring and motivating the children.
