Based in the town of Nanyuki in the heart of Laikipia County, this project allows you to immerse yourself in the local culture, living with a host family and helping bring a smile to the faces of some of the vulnerable children in the local community.

During your time volunteering in Kenya you will work in a children’s centre, kindergarten, or care home. Your day will be split between doing practical activities like building, renovating, painting, and decorating to more care based activities including running educational activities and playing with the children. Kenyan children love sports so volunteers are encouraged to get involved with outside games and activities. One of the days may even be a mini sports day.

 Projects Abroad High School Specials volunteers play outside with kids in Kenya, Africa.

In many of care centres in Kenya a lack of staff and resources is evident. During your placement you and your fellow volunteers will be able to plan some fun and interactive educational activities to do with the children. The goal is to encourage them to learn while giving them the attention that so many of them need.

During the weekend you will get the opportunity to experience the fantastic scenery and spectacular wildlife in one of Kenya’s mystical forests or wildlife conservancies.

For those who want to do a longer stay, this project is available as a 4-week program on select dates. Those joining us on the 4-week program will get extra visits and activities arranged during the other weekends.
