Program

Days 1-2: Arrival in Nairobi and orientation

Days 3-4: Transfer to your host family

After the orientation, you will be taken to your host family who will host you for the whole duration of volunteering on day three. Day four will be spent bonding with the host family. During your volunteer program you will be accommodated in a pre-selected homestay.

The homestay offers you a lockable room, host parents, two meals a day (breakfast and dinner), mosquito net, and an opportunity to interact with locals and learn how to cook local dishes.

Days 5-11: Volunteering in a children’s home

During your volunteering period, you will engage in day to day activities of running the children's home. The orphanage activities include cooking, feeding kids, laundry, assisting them with their homework, administrative work, general grooming, dressing, and soothing them to sleep.

The children home you will be volunteering in can be a walking distance or with minimal commuting from the hosting family.
