 Looking forward to working with a school in a rural setting? Do you wanna experience the challenges of African curriculum? Are you good with kids? If yes is your answer, then don’t hold back.

Timbwani Baptist Primary School is a primary level institution located in the Likoni county of Mombasa, Kenya. It is easy to reach from Ukunda via shuttle or from Mombasa via shuttle and Likoni ferry.

Vision Academy was started under a cashew tree at a village township called Bamburi in Majenge Kanamai Location, approximately 2-3 hours from the airport. It was established in the May of 2006 with the sole purpose of educating the poor and the needy rural kids and also establishing a holistic form of education.

Volunteers would work with either of these two schools or a lot of similar schools or children centres within the same area based on the coordinator’s discretion.  

Challenges faced:

  1. Lack of resources to reach out and advance the power of education.
  2. Include systematic digitization.
  3. Lack of personnel to assist the teachers.
  4. Absence of neo-noir teaching styles involving body language pedagogy and blackboard.

We are looking for volunteers to help us with: 

  • Improving teaching styles.
  • Mixing of indigenous curriculum in sync with the modern ways of digital education.
  • Providing extra resources for teaching.
  • Mentorship for the primary (grades 3-5).

Journée Typique

First Day: On your first day of volunteering, you will be escorted to your accommodation by a local coordinator/staff member and allowed to relax and rest.

Following that, you will meet the admin and the organizational hierarchy who will explain the work and the ongoing projects to be done.

Please ensure to inform the admin/contact person about the flight ETA and other details, as and when required, prior to the journey. This would avoid any unnecessary loss of time by waiting at the airport. 

A typical volunteer day would be as follows:

  • 8:30 AM: Volunteer leaves for the project destination. The volunteer joins with the local staff and will be oriented about the work to be done.
  • 12.00 PM – 2.00 PM: Lunch break. During this lunch break, you are welcome to eat out or eat at the accommodation.
  • 2.00 PM - 4.00 PM: Work at the project usually ends. The volunteer at this point is free to travel around and explore or do anything at his/her own choice.
  • 7.00 PM: Dinner in the accommodations.

Usual work days are Monday to Friday. And Saturdays and Sundays are off-work days.

The best part about the project and the program is its time notwithstanding.

Activités de Loisir

During the weekend, volunteers have spare time to relax or take the opportunity to explore the Mombasa locale, such as visiting the beach, planning a fun and entertainment program with the kids, etc.

Also, they can tour in and around places like Kilifi, Diani and so on.

Being famous for the wildlife and the food, one can simply relax at the nearby Shelly Beach or have a light bite at Talentos (a beachside restaurant) which is where most of the fun activities are held.

NOTE- The program coordinator/director can arrange for sightseeing, only after proper intimation and discussion.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION -

We do understand that some volunteers may not be able to spend as much so it is better that they discuss with the management prior to arranging a stay. In the times of the pandemic, empathy is a route to better communication and compassion. Although the money is directly invested for the provisions of the volunteers and the children and the caregivers, what we need in exchange for a budget compromise is your love, energy and ideas that can suit our betterment.

Logement

Volunteers are accommodated in a volunteer house, where you can expect to share a room with three to seven other volunteers. Bedrooms are comprised of bunk beds with bedding provided, which includes a bedding, blanket and pillow.

The volunteer house is located in Mombasa, 10 minutes from the project site. The volunteer house has electricity and running water.

There is an additional lobby for meals and meetings.

One can always stay at the school for any purpose until sunset (except for Sundays) on condition that the school’s decorum be maintained.

Dortoir Famille d'accueil Chambre simple Chambre double
Aliments & Boissons

Volunteers are provided with three meals per day (breakfast and dinner), which are served at the accommodation. However, in case of lunch, it may be at one’s own expense or sometimes shared with the school staff. Not to worry, a proper local lunch usually costs no more than 1.5-2 euros.

Breakfast is served around 7 am and generally consists of chai (tea), toast, fruit and sometimes mandazi (African donuts). A typical lunch can include vegetables with rice, occasional meat and fruit and is best taken around 1-2 pm. Dinner is usually served around 7-8 pm and usually includes traditional food, such as ugali, chapati, mbuga and irio, alongside meat and vegetables.

Tap water is not safe to drink in Kenya, though bottled water is readily available. Volunteers typically drink around half a gallon, or two liters, per day, which adds up to cost around $5-10 per week although drinking water is available at the volunteer house.

If you have any special dietary requirements, please make a note on your application so arrangements can be made. However, it is important that volunteers do not expect to eat as you normally do at home.

Informations sur l'arrivée

No specific start date would be announced. 

However, with the new systems fast approaching, it would be wise for the volunteers to make the journey at the soonest and get the maximal experience.

The program orientation begins usually on the day of the volunteer’s arrival or the day after, given the randomly changing flight schedules in lieu of the recent covid19 situation.

In case the volunteer is scheduled for Nairobi, there might be additional charges for pickup assistance or a proper navigational guidance for the route to Mombasa.

We strongly advise volunteers to save time and money to book a direct or a 1-stop flight to Mombasa (IATA code – MBA) as the final destination and their place of volunteering is the same.

  • After you have registered for the program, please book your flights to arrive at Mombasa International Airport.
  • When you arrive, you will be greeted at the airport by a member of the local team and transported to the volunteer accommodation. 
  • If you are traveling in Kenya prior to your volunteer program, we can arrange for you to be picked up in Mombasa on the day before your program orientation or you can navigate by yourself to the destination. Please make sure to keep in touch with the program coordinator and you will be assisted and guided during the tenure of your tour and stay accordingly. After all, traveling is always smoother when it has a proper communication system.
  • Orientation is given by the admin or a staff member in the orphanage campus.
  • Orientation begins on the morning of your chosen start date and covers everything you need to know for your volunteer program in Kenya – Introduction to Mombasa, Kenyan Customs, Language Training Details, Rules and Expectations, Safety, Travel Opportunities in Kenya (in and around Mombasa) and Introduction to your project.

Once your orientation is complete, you will be guided to your work location and you can proceed with the relevant work.


**We strongly advise visitors not to reserve night flights as transport for pick-up might not be available. Preferably between 2300 to 0400 hours any day (east African Time).**
