Choose to spend a more meaningful vacation contributing your valuable time working with orphaned children in Kenya. In collaboration with our local.

Kenya has many orphans who have been affected by the AIDS virus as well as poverty. There is a need to help kids who have lost their parents through the epidemic. We are presently working with more than 3 local orphanages in the different parts of the city and Limuru. Volunteers in this placement mostly help orphans by tutoring, home schooling and organizing creative extracurricular activities.

Skills/Qualifications Needed

There is no specific qualification needed to join the orphanage volunteer project. However, volunteers are expected to be flexible and patient. You should have passion and love for orphans.

Volunteer Responsibilities

As a volunteer in the orphanage project, you will help tutor the children in the orphanage where the orphans are home-schooled. You will also help kids to stay clean by helping them in brushing teeth, shower and personal hygiene. During the evening, you organize games, drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative education and extracurricular activities.
