Project Details

Our mission is to promote resilience whilst attempting to end poverty and injustice regardless of religion race, ethnicity or gender.

Who we are

UCESCO Africa is a charity Non-Governmental Organization, committed to incrementally and sustainably address poverty amongst vulnerable households located in slums and rural villages in East Africa. Families and individuals within these communities, desire change: they long for adequate food, good health, education, and, secure life. They feel hopeless in their current situation, but lack the knowledge and resources to change. They deserve to live a life free from poverty.

What we do

— We Build Networks for culture exchange

We Strengthen the marginalized communities 

— We provide both immediate and long term food relief for vulnerable communities.

— We Provide Care

— We Educate

—  We fight for Clean Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene 

Where we work

Currently, we have projects ongoing in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya at Informal Settlements (Kibera and Mathare Slums), the counties of Kisii, Samburu and Migori County, Mombasa city, the Masai Landa, and the Northeastern Park of Kenya. Our organization depends on the generosity of donors and volunteers to achieve our goals. Volunteering with us will not only allow you to positively impact the world, but you will also have the opportunity to become fully immersed in Kenyan culture. 

Our mission

Actively and sustainably develop vulnerable women and children through Education and by diversifying their income streams, to increase their economic viability; through the creation of an environment that promotes social change in enhancing their livelihoods.

Our Goal 

To see a world where disadvantaged families living in informal settlements and marginalized areas in Africa are valued in society and empowered to create sustainable and impactful change.

Who are we looking for

We are looking for, volunteers interested in Education volunteer programs,  Childcare program, Community Services programs, Medical volunteer program, Volunteer for the holiday tourism program, Volunteer projects and internship for Sports, Volunteer for Building and Construction, Volunteer for the Environment & Agriculture, Art & Cultural Volunteer Opportunities to join us and help us to serve more needy families and children in Ast Africa. 

Why choose us

UCESCO has a 100% safety record in Kenya and we mean to keep it. Our programs in Kenya is safe to experience. General ly, Kenyans are friendly people by nature, especially towards volunteers who are helping their community. We advise that no volunteer should be out after dark and that volunteers should stay indoors after 9 pm. Exceptions are made when volunteers are with UCESCO local volunteer or project staff. This is merely a precaution, but one that we expect all volunteers to keep. People may stop to say hello and it is polite to respond; however, they will understand if you are busy and cannot chat for long. Never accept an invitation to visit a stranger’s. We also recommend that you arrange medical, dental, and eye check-ups before you depart, to identify any issues that might affect your time in Kenya.

Social Impact

As a charity focused on community, we are keen to work with local administrations, organized community groups, individuals, and schools to demonstrate to the communities we work with that there are opportunities in the wider world that are attainable. These partnerships, UCESCO believes, gives these marginalized communities we are serving hope and motivation to see beyond the walls of the situation that they live in.

In the areas we focus our efforts, most women and many youths are living in extreme poverty, earning less than $1.00 per day. They cannot afford education for their children, clean water is scarce, and diseases caused by poor hygiene are prevalent. A great number of women and youths living in these areas lack access to basic services including electricity, running water, and medical care.
