It costs $415 to stay in the volunteer house; $577 for the hotel; and $405 to stay with a host family. This is all per week. The prices scale down when the volunteers come in bigger groups and stay longer.
The cost will cater for food, accommodation, pick-ups from and to the nearest airport and local transport on specific schedules.
All meals provided.
In addition to accommodation and meals, we will provide:
- 1 GB data bundle within a period of one month for WiFi/hotspot connection.
- One day visit to Lake Victoria.
- We generally give guidance, orientation, initial introduction, and visits to most of our project sites, where volunteers and interns have the opportunity to freely interact with the local community.
We take interested volunteers to learn how to cook local foods. The $10 is used to buy the food ingredients and fuel for cooking. Volunteers are greeted and given a rousing welcome. They are then briefed on the specific type of cooking and community benefits in their participation. Finally, everyone eats.
Rieko Kenya is keen in engaging and working with volunteers with diverse background in creating longstanding positive impact.
