Volunteer Kenya: Accommodation
Volunteers in Nairobi stay at a hostel type accommodation or home stay accommodation.
You will share a room with a number of other volunteers of the same gender and will sleep in bunk beds.
Couples are provided a separate room.
You will share a flushing toilet and bathroom with a shower with other volunteers. There is running water in the house.
As with the running water, there is electricity, but this will not be as reliable as it is at home in the West (A good reason to bring a decent torch!). Black-outs are common, and it is not unusual to go without power for a few hours at a time.
You will need to do all your own laundry (by hand), as well as cleaning your room and helping with cleaning of the common areas and kitchen.
