Volunteering in Kenya will help improve the lives of over half the population who shockingly live on less than $1 a day! The slums that inhabit these communities are also sadly plagued with the spread of the HIV and AIDS viruses. Corruption, poverty, malnutrition and limited access to clean water and sanitation are also afflicted to the vast percentage of the people of Kenya.
Although tragic and heartbreaking, there is hope for the Kenyan people thanks to those who choose to volunteer in Kenya. Help them overcome a humanitarian crisis and give your time to projects that focus on eliminating violence in the country and educate the children of the local slum areas so that they can build a better future for themselves and their families. Work on HIV and AIDS outreach campaigns aimed towards educating the rural communities on the dangers of the virus and how it spreads to others. Help care for children with special needs regrettably negated by their families due to the excessive cost of care.
There are so many different programs to get involved with when you choose to volunteer in Kenya on your gap year. Check out our product listings to find the one best suited to your needs.
