These volunteering placements in Kenya are in baby homes, orphanages and schools. You may choose to volunteer in one, two or all three of these, working hands-on with the children.
Your work will vary depending on the project and what is most needed at the time. In the baby homes,you will mostly be helping with the care of the babies, keeping them entertained, assisting around the home and doing activities with the toddlers.
If you choose to volunteer in an orphanage, you will be doing age-appropriate activities with the children, helping around the building and taking care of the kids.
In the schools, you will be assisting in classes, although there will often be the chance to lead activities as well if you are keen to.
In your free time, you can go on trips to various animal sanctuaries in the region, plus go on safari.
All the placements are very rewarding and each placement is tailored to each volunteer. You will be fully supported throughout your placement to ensure you and the kids get the most out of your short time there. You'll be assured of a warm welcome from the children, as they love having volunteers!
