Volunteer in Kenya

Kenya is well-known for its incredible wildlife parks and Safaris, but of course there is so much more to this wonderful East African country.

Our volunteer programs in Kenya include orphanage volunteering, healthcare internships, wildlife volunteering and teaching at community schools.

Kenya has over 70 tribal groups and even more languages — with English and Swahili spoken throughout most of Kenya. The country’s capital city Nairobi is often referred to as the birthplace of humanity.

In Nairobi volunteers live and work in one of Africa’s largest cities. In the Rift Valley, volunteers live and work with the Maasai tribe — a truly African experience. In Mombasa on the coast, our volunteers experience the Arab influence in Kenya’s second largest city and center of the country’s coastal tourism trade. If you want a more rural experience, you can live and volunteer in Kakamega in western Kenya.
