PIVS was founded in 2001 and registered in 2002 at the office of the vice president and ministry of gender, sports, culture and social services as a community based organization and in 2007 PIVS was elevated and registered as a Non Governmental Organization.

It is committed to especially set-up and co-ordinate Work camps in various part of Kenya, especially marginalized areas, which plays a pivotal role in co-ordinating voluntary work, strengthening sustainable initiatives by taking part as volunteers, promoting intercultural exchange.
