Want to help improve the lives of Kenyan orphans? This program is for you!

The mission of this program is to care for the orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children of Nairobi. Kenya has many orphanages which house HIV/AIDS orphans and children who have been abandoned by family members. Sadly, due to the stigma attached to HIV/AIDS, orphans are often neglected in Africa. The children volunteers come into contact with during their placement have been extremely disadvantaged by their circumstances and will have endured a great deal of hardship - much of it holding back their development. Love Volunteers works with multiple orphanages around Nairobi which offer many different experiences, for example one allows volunteers to live on-site, becoming completely immersed in orphanage life.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide essential childcare to vulnerable children in Nairobi
  • Improve the future prospects of the children in Kenya
  • Give impoverished children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the ongoing support and development of marginalized and at-risk children of Kenya. This highly interactive and varied project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist. However, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:
