You will be offered a personal and customisable placement service. You will be supported throughout
the duration of your placement.
We use our local knowledge and spend time in the country meeting your requirements.
Customised placements that volunteers have asked for in the past include volunteering in mobile clinics, volunteer in mental health clinics, amongst the handicapped, hospice volunteering, HIV/Aids or doing volunteer work in specific areas like nutrition, dental services and working amongst the Masai, Pokot and Samburu.
We have orphanage projects in Nairobi, orphanages in Mombasa, Nakuru and other small towns. Orphans in Kenya orphanages and Children’s homes are extremely disadvantaged and encounter a lot of hardships in their life. They are deprived of many opportunities necessary for their development. The children in our Kenya orphanage projects have never experienced loving, caring and stable relationships.
As an orphanage volunteer, you will help vulnerable children. The children will receive much needed attention, compassion, hope, encouragement, support and love from you. Through the education and compassion they receive from you, the children are empowered to challenge life, poverty and exploitation.
Kenya volunteer orphanage placements or voluntary work with disadvantaged children is very fulfilling. Volunteering in orphanages in Kenya will be one of the most challenging positive, life-changing, and rewarding experiences of your life.
Volunteers in this area are given responsibilities depending on their medical qualifications. Qualified doctors and nurses can carry full day to day treatment of various diseases.
Medical students work under the supervision of qualified medical personnel. Volunteers who do not have medical training help in packing of drugs, painting etc.
The volunteers can work in the areas of maternal health, mental health, surgery, laboratories, counselling and testing. Volunteers can work in clinics located in the slums of Nairobi, or in hospitals located elsewhere.
Your HIV/Aids volunteer service will include homecare visits to the slums bringing vital supplies of food, medicine, and providing basic medical care. HIV/Aids volunteers help decrease the spread of HIV by raising awareness and promoting access to medical care.
Volunteers also provide emotional support and foster compassion for people living with HIV/Aids in the community. Volunteers educate and counsel the community, schools and individuals.
AIDS orphans are often neglected in Africa. As a volunteer in this program, you will visit HIV/Aids clinics, and help meet the needs of AIDS orphans.
Volunteer opportunities are available amongst the Masai tribe of Kenya. The volunteer jobs are close to the Masai Mara Game reserve.
Volunteers work in a rescue centre which accommodates Masai women and Masai girls rescued from forced marriages and those rescued from forced
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) practices.
Other volunteer work available
includes teaching at both primary and secondary schools located near the Masai Mara. All children at the schools come from the Maasai tribe. Click here for more details on the Maasai Volunteer Program.
