Volunteer with children in Kenya and experience a different way of life while supporting disadvantaged children at a local care centre. You’ll focus on early childhood development, and raising literacy levels. Use this opportunity to gain childcare experience while giving back at the same time. Both could help your future career.
You’ll become part of our ongoing efforts to support the work of local teachers and caregivers in Kenya. You’ll do this by teaching English, and making sure each child has the skills and basic knowledge they need to thrive at school. You can also help improve quality of life for children at special needs centres.
You’ll live and work in Nanyuki, and stay with a local host family. Make the most of your trip and sample the local food, learn about the traditions, and explore the African Savannah!
