Our volunteer program in Kenya is located in Mombasa and Nairobi, two vibrant cities of Kenya.

However, you can choose to take the Orientation or go directly into a volunteer project. If you decided to participate in one week language and cultural immersion, your program begins with one-week of language classes, cultural immersion, and travel experiences in Nairobi. Hot and humid, Nairobi is the modern capital city of Kenya aka the "Green City in the Sun".

- Phase Two: Work in Volunteer Service Projects. Kenya Volunteer Work Projects and Locations: our Kenya volunteer program presently supports local orphanages, HIV/AIDS Projects, local schools, and NGOs working for different social issues. Volunteer projects in Kenya are located in Mombasa and Nairobi. Volunteers can work in any of these volunteer projects in Kenya while sharing their love and skill with the local kids, woman's groups, and community.

- Kenya Volunteer program. Arrangement of Room/Food/Supervision: we arrange room, food, and supervision for volunteer from the start to the end of program. During first, week of language and cultural program, volunteers stay in our hostel in Mombasa. Our hostel in Mombasa is located in the heart of the city giving volunteers easy access to all parts of the city. During the volunteering period, volunteers stay with a host family. However, volunteers joining the orphanage project will stay in the orphanage compound as these are residential projects and your help will be needed both morning and evening. We arrange a separate room for volunteers in the home stay and in the orphanage. You can find the details of the room/food accommodations in the placement sheets for your project.
