About

Do you want to volunteer but you just don’t know how? Spend your gap year in Kenya with Adventure Alternative, whose nonprofit Moving Mountains has coupled with countless organizations across the country to provide a plethora of opportunities. Do you prefer teaching children to read or working in an orphanage? Would you like to manage the bureaucracy of a charity organization, or would you prefer to be on the treets, in the slums, understanding the circumstances facing Kenyan youth from a grassroots level? You can do it all—programs generally range from two to three months, giving volunteers a perfect opportunity to learn what they can do and help the local people achieve literacy and sustainability goals. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to assist the Black Cats, the Kenya-wide youth soccer (football) league! There are plenty of exciting chances to dive into the beautiful culture, so spend your gap year in Kenya and find out which part you like the most!
