How Old to Volunteer? Volunteers to Kenya need to be at least 17 if coming alone. Volunteers aged 16 can come if accompanied by a parent/guardian or an older friend.

Volunteers aged less than 16 can come accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Volunteers aged 17 and below mostly work at orphanages. You do not need any previous experience or formal educational qualifications to volunteer.

We shall identify a suitable volunteer project based on your age, requirements, experiences and other relevant considerations.

Orphanage placements in Kenya are always very rewarding. Young volunteers are especially needed in orphanage projects to interact and play with the local children.

Young volunteers help local children learn and practice English. They also assist the kids with creative activities such as painting, drawing, and dancing.

Older volunteers help in the kitchen preparing meals, washing dishes and hand washing clothes.

Young volunteers will be of much help in inspiring and motivating the local children. You will be a mentor by becoming a big brother or sister to orphaned kids in a children's home.

Working in an orphanage is one of the most popular volunteer projects in Kenya.
