Made for Meaningful Travel

Volunteer World's mission has always been to ensure fairness, transparency and high quality within the meaningful travel industry. Due to its great usability & unique design, media claims Volunteer World to be the "AirBnB" for volunteer abroad opportunities - and we do not disagree on that!

Your Extra Layer of Security

Volunteer World is the world's leading comparison platform for international volunteer opportunities. We guide you through a safe and easy application process. Planning your next meaningful trip with Volunteer World gives you free access to our:

Havilla Children Centre

Health Care and Medical assistant

Volunteers will be working with our nurses here.There is not enough labour in soo many hospitals in Kenya and so there is need for more labour.

Skills/Qualifications Needed

Applicants interested in joining our volunteer healthcare program do not need previous healthcare experience or education. Our programs are designed to accommodate volunteers of a variety of backgrounds. Whether you are a student, professional, or retiree, there is a vital role within our healthcare program for you.

Volunteer Responsibilities

Job responsibilities of volunteers joining as a medical volunteer vary with education, skills, experience and qualifications. Volunteers/Interns are not allowed to perform the major identification or surgery works. Most of the time volunteers help doctors or work as an assistant to doctors. Volunteers measure BP, temperature, height, weight and assist doctors and medical staffs with health center tasks. You may also help in health camps (if any), distribute medicines, provide tips to patients on health, nutrition and sanitation and counseling patients, and involve yourself in the treatment for minor injuries or wounds and keeping patient records.

Room/Food/Supervision

We arrange for room, food and supervision for volunteer from the beginning through the end of program. During the first week of language and cultural program, volunteers stay with a host family in Nairobi. The home is located 10 minutes from the city giving easy access to most part of the city.

During volunteering in the health project, volunteers will stay with a host family. You will either stay near the center or you will commute to the project by matatu every day. Host families will offer a separate room but you will share the bathroom with them. You can find the details of arrangement for room/food in placement sheets provided you. Our field staff visits you every 2 weeks and maintains contact by phone or through email with volunteers who are placed in farther locations.

Volunteers work from 8 am to 4 pm and its a walking distance from the host family to the project.During weekend they work for half Day 8 am -12 pm.
