Volunteering in Kenya

We've been working in Kenya since 1959. Volunteers support a range of initiatives improving health and education outcomes as well as supporting people improve their ability to provide for themselves and their families. 

Volunteering in Kenya

Peter in a maths class

Kenya is an exciting place. The Kenyan economy continues to grow. The country's innovators are using technology to tackle the country’s most pressing needs - some have dubbed Kenya the ‘Silicon Savannah’. New startups appear every day. 

However, the gap between rich and poor is widening. Access to vital services, including healthcare and education as well as economic support is difficult for a majority of the population. Our volunteers are working to bridge the gap. We'd love for you to join them. 

We have over 60 years' experience supporting volunteers in Kenya. You are in good hands.
