Care for Orphans in Kenya as a Voluntourist Volunteer

Location

Nakuru, Kenya

Dates

31 March 2018 - 28 April 2018

Overview

At the International Humanity Foundation (IHF) we care for impoverished youth who have been neglected due to poverty, disease, and/or disaster through our Children’s Homes program.

Volunteers who sign up to be a part of our Orphan Care in Kenya project make a very real impact on the children living in the IHF Children’s Home. Volunteers provide hands-on help with the home’s day-to-day operations, helping to ensure a family atmosphere.

Volunteers actively participate in the lives of the children. You could find yourself organizing games and workshops for the youth, playing with the children, working alongside them on the Peace Farm, assisting with counseling, helping the youth with their studies and daily chores, and even completing small center maintenance projects.

Volunteers need no prior experience, but do need to have a love of children, patience and kindness. We provide all the necessary training, background, and supplies necessary for you to have meaningful interactions with the children.

Eligibility

IHF is looking for volunteers who can commit a minimum of 2 weeks during the dates mentioned above as part of our Voluntourist Program. Volunteers accepted to this program serve 4 hours per day interacting with the children. The rest of your time is free for you to explore beautiful Kenya at your leisure.

Volunteers accepted to this program will have: confidence using the English language, deep empathy for impoverished children and their communities, and a commitment to our Core Values. Previous international travel and volunteer experiences are a plus.

Program Cost

Volunteers in our Voluntourist Program pay a weekly fee of $200 USD. Accommodation and meals prepared by a local member of staff are included in this program.

Not included are your travel costs to and from our Kenya Center, initial visa fees, immunizations, travel insurance, and any spending money you wish to bring with you.

Note: due to the nature of our work with children, should you application be accepted we do require a criminal background check which is less than 1 year old.

Benefits

In addition to making a notable difference in the lives of children, you will have plenty of time to explore the natural beauty of Nakuru, Kenya.

  • Make a difference in the lives of impoverished children

  • Immerse yourself in the local Kenyan culture

  • Sample Kenyan food staples

  • Gain international experience

  • Join a global network of IHF volunteers and alumni

  • Go on safari
