Volunteer with Marafiki Community International

Marafiki Community International

Nairobi, Kenya, Africa

We create sustainable communities and minds in Kenya with the help of our volunteers

Marafiki Community International is an organization dedicated to enhancing lives and fostering communities through sustainable development. The programs and services offered bring together the underprivileged members of our community to acquire education, skills, build self-esteem, and ultimately help them to become self-sustaining through socio-economic empowerment.

We believe education is at the heart of sustainable development, which is why we built and run Southern Cross Academy at the SIDP(Settled Internally Displaced People) camp in Mai Mahiu where we offer free education for 350 children. We are also in the process of building Ripoi Primary School in the middle of Maasai Mara. We are committed to the education of children in communities like these, where there is a hunger and a passion for it.

Marafiki will only take on projects that are sustainable and that will increase the opportunities of Kenyans to better our society.
