Volunteer Opportunities in KenyaKenya is placing much focus on social change, and you can find its reflection with the many nonprofits working throughout the cities. Volunteering opportunities can be found in both urban and rural locations in key issues that are related to poverty and HIV/AIDS struggles. As these are critical concerns for a large part of Kenya’s population, choosing to contribute in either of these fields can be immensely important. Working as a teacher in a local school can provide you with important skills, not to mention an amazing chance to learn another language (and catch a few lines in Swahili). Kenya’s healthcare volunteering ranges between outreach educational programs to medical volunteering.
