You can get your hands on a range of different International Volunteer HQ sponsorships throughout the year, with the money you win going directly towards the cost of one of their two-week programs. You'll also get a flight voucher in the value of up to $1,000 from STA Travel and travel insurance to cover the duration of the program from World Nomads. Recent grants have included an “Alternative Break” scholarship, where Spring, Summer or Winter break programs were fully funded.
Many childcare and kindergarten centres in Kenya are under-resourced, meaning there is a high demand for energetic volunteers who love children and can keep up with the lively atmosphere. You’ll help to teach basic English and Math, as well as assist with the general running of the center and daily chores such as cooking, cleaning, feeding, general care for children and babies and occasionally even helping with farm work.
As a Teaching volunteer, you'll be based in either Nairobi or Masaai teaching at local schools and helping teachers to manage large classes. This project is one of a kind and suitable for volunteers looking for a teaching experience like no other. In Masaai, Giraffes, gazelles and dik-diks often wander freely across the school grounds. It’s also not unusual for wild animals to burrow holes in the school field overnight.
As a volunteer on the Women’s Education project in Kenya, you'll work closely with centers that support women affected by HIV/AIDS in providing companionship, guidance and sometimes childcare. Volunteers assist in a range of areas, including counseling, skill training and providing education. This project is particularly relevant for those with skills and interests in arts and craft-making, as well as an interest in supporting women to become self-sufficient.
Sport plays a big role in the lives of young, enthusiastic Kenyans. Many children grow up with very little, but by using sport as an outlet for fun and competition, they gain skills and coordination while enjoying themselves at the same time. As a volunteer on our Sports Education project in Kenya, you’ll help to broaden their knowledge of sports, teach foreign sports and educate them about general fitness, health and wellbeing.
Due to lack of support and education around disability awareness in Kenya, many disabled children and adults are kept out of the public eye. As a volunteer on this project, you'll assist with providing daily hands-on support and disability education among families and local communities. This project is well suited to caring and open minded individuals with an interest in helping those with special needs.
