Durante décadas, Kenia ha atraído a amantes de la vida silvestre, viajeros aventureros y artistas amantes de la naturaleza, ya que es un país lleno de paisajes únicos y un gran patrimonio cultural. Pero, lamentablemente, gran parte de su población se encuentra en situaciones de pobreza y penuria económica que impide que sus hijos accedan a una educación de calidad.

Esta necesidad ha generado que muchas organizaciones y comunidades busquen herramientas y posibles soluciones a este problema, que faciliten la vida diaria de estas personas vulnerables. Adventure Volunteer, es una de estas asociaciones, que apoya a comunidades vulnerables en Kenia a través del programa de voluntariado de refuerzo y apoyo escolar para niños y jóvenes de escasos recursos. Creemos que al servir a los niños de estas comunidades, podemos empoderarlos para que tengan como objetivo mejorar la calidad de vida y luchar contra la desventaja social que enfrentan a diario. 

Como voluntario en Kenia, debes tener en cuenta que no tenemos suficiente personal para hacer frente a la demanda de trabajo que tenemos actualmente. Esperamos que nuestros voluntarios traigan nuevas ideas y metodologías de enseñanza que motiven a nuestros niños y jóvenes a seguir aprendiendo y construir un futuro mejor para ellos.

Trabajamos principalmente con niños de entre 3 y 8 años por las mañanas y niños de entre 9 y 14 años por las tardes . Los voluntarios interesados ​​en brindar educación sexual y emocional colaborarán con niños pequeños de entre 10 y 21 años. Las clases se organizan en las siguientes materias: 

  • Inglés, Matemáticas, Informática y Deportes
  • Actividades de arte, danza y música
  • Charlas de salud e higiene
  • Clases de cocina, Pintura, Jardinería
  • Espacios de narración y teatro
  • Colaborar en las tareas de limpieza y mantenimiento del centro
  • Asistir al personal de los centros

Todo lo anterior se complementará con actividades de ocio y tiempo libre que busquen promover la integración socioeducativa, la tolerancia y la solidaridad en los niños que habitan estas comunidades.


Typical day

The volunteering facility is at about 5 to 20 minutes walk distance from the host family you will be staying with. 

A volunteer's day starts at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 5:30 p.m., although this may vary depending on the task to be performed by the volunteer.

A regular day in the life of a volunteer looks like:

  • 7:00 – 8:00 Breakfast with local family
  •  8:00 – 8:15 Road to the project
  •  8:15 – 13:00 Collaboration in the project
  •  13:00 – 14:00 Lunch with the local family
  •  14:00 – 16:00 Collaboration with the project
  •  16:00 – 19:00 Free time
  •  19:00 Dinner with local family

Free-time activities

One of the ways to get to know a country is to make a trip, but not just a trip, a different trip; where you can know, live and feel the true essence of that country and its people. You can do this through volunteering in Kenya: visiting and getting to know the very rich culture of the Maasai tribe, join local Safaris, or enjoy some of the bustling markets and delicious cuisine Nairobi has to offer.
