Volunteer in Kenya, Africa

Volunteer in Kenya, Africa: Advance Africa welcomes volunteers and interns all year long to work in children’s homes, school English teaching program, medical care, social work, hospice, sports, and HIV/AIDS awareness, in Kenya, Africa.

Volunteers typically participate in one project all day. The schedule can be tailored to give you the opportunity to work with different people in different environments.

During the weekends, volunteers have free time to explore their surroundings. You can go to Mombasa, visit the local markets and spend time with other volunteers.

Additionally, you enjoy our special priced volunteer's safaris.

We have many interesting volunteering and internship opportunities to suit your needs.

Volunteering is a very independent job. The results depend on how much time and effort the volunteer puts in the projects.

Anything you are able and willing to do for the local community is highly appreciated. Our projects benefit from volunteers who are enthusiastic and ready to make that extra step.
