Kenya Orphanage Childcare Volunteer Program

Kenya is a tremendously gratifying area to explore, lapped by the Indian Ocean and straddling the equator, with Mount Kenya soaring above a stunning panorama of forested hills, patchwork farms, and woodland savanna. Vast savannas dotted with massive animal herds. Equatorial mountains with snow-capped peaks. Traditional peoples who give the world soul and color. Mountains, deserts, tribal cultures, and beaches may all be found in Kenya. It's also famed for its national parks, which are teeming with wildlife. Naturally, tourism is the country's mainstay, but Kenya also boasts a strong educational system, as well as an independent court and press.

Despite this, Kenya has a poor economy and a culture that is split along ethnic lines. Deprivation is also pervasive, and many individuals are struggling to make ends meet. As a result, Nairobi and other urban regions have some of the world's biggest slums. However, there is reason for optimism, as Kenya's government is more responsible to its citizens than those of its neighbors. The Home aims to find and enroll newborns and children in residential or community care programs so that they can get compassionate treatment for their spiritual, physical, emotional, economic, and social needs.

Volunteer’s Roles Responsibilities and Activities

In the mornings, you will assist the children in getting ready for school. You'll teach English, help orphanage kids with their schoolwork, offer your skills, and learn about theirs. You will assist the orphanage staff with day-to-day duties within the facility. A volunteer's major responsibility is to make youngsters feel as if they are in the company of someone who cares about them. Volunteers are expected to have a positive impact on these children's lives. Sharing your actual sentiments with children, as well as playing and having fun with them may have a significant impact on their daily life. This volunteer effort's main purpose is to assist these youngsters in improving their emotional, intellectual, physical, and social well-being.

Arrival and Orientation

Our staff will pick you up from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and drive you to your community housing or host family. The remainder of the day is yours to relax and soak up Kenya's warmth. A formal meeting with your coordinators and other group members will be held. During orientation, you will learn more about Kenya and your program. Later in your vacation, you'll go to Kenya, a country noted for its history and hospitality.


Ten to fifteen individuals can sleep in the common residence. Group housing is given in a hostel-style setting, with gender-specific dormitory rooms. Group leaders have their own sleeping quarters. Wi-Fi is available, as are eating and living rooms with indoor showers. Depending on the size of the gathering, host families may be assigned. Our host families have been thoroughly vetted, have been a part of our program for a number of years, and come highly recommended by previous participants. Upgraded accommodations are available upon request.

Free Time Travel Activities 

Nairobi, Kenya's capital, is home to a large number of people from several tribes. Kenya has 42 tribes, all of whom speak the same ethnic languages. People from 42 tribes travel to Nairobi to search for work, conduct business, and obtain academic degrees among others as it is a hub for many things. Both foreign and domestic travelers will enjoy Nairobi's top attractions. Meanwhile, you may relax and explore Kenya. If this is your last day in the program, our team will assist you in making plans for the future. Those that stick with the program will be given a two-day weekend to unwind. Placements that last longer than a week are handled in the same way. Monday through Friday, you'll be working on the project. Saturday and Sunday are unrestricted exploring days.
