Childcare Work in Kenya from US$250

Company : International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)
Location : Nairobi
Duration: 1 week to 6 months
Approx Costs: 250 to 2500 $ Dollars (US)

Due to the high incidences of poverty and illness, centres in Kenya can host 50-300 children at any one time and there is always a high demand for more volunteer assistance.

Volunteers on the Childcare project in Kenya are placed in a range of orphanages and childcare centers, some of which house and foster abandoned and orphaned children, some that have schools attached, and others where volunteers live at the centers full time.

Each center accommodates children of differing ages, however volunteers generally work with children between the ages of 1 to 16 years old. Placements can include pre-schools, baby daycare centers and orphanage centers. Whether the children are at home or at school, the centers are always busy, and volunteers can help with all areas of daily activity.

Tasks can include cooking, cleaning, feeding, washing, and caring for the children, in addition to entertaining and playing with them.
