Volunteer Opportunities in Kenya

Kenya 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.

How to Volunteer in Kenya

How to find volunteer opportunities in Kenya

The metropolis of Nairobi and its urban sister Mombasa together host nonprofits which focus on countless causes. But if you are interested in a more rural experience, Kenya’s developed environmental volunteering operation includes educational programs, construction, water sustainability, unique wildlife conservation, and marine life preservation.

Best time to volunteer in Kenya

The best time to volunteer in Kenya depends on the activity you plan to undertake while traveling: wildlife volunteers or animal lovers in general will benefit from visiting between late June to October, when Kenya's spectacular wildlife crosses the Savannah.

Essential information about Kenya

Kenya's official language is Swahili. With the rural areas being primarily affected by poverty and lack of sustainable education, those who choose to focus on the impoverished rural areas can find incredible opportunities to make an impact.
