About Program

This volunteer project in rural Kenya is a diverse community program which aims to help those affected by disease, malnutrition, unemployment, limited education and other extreme disadvantages that are faced by the rural communities of Kenya.

Child-headed households in Kenya have seen a dramatic increase due to HIV/AIDS. Without their parents to take care of them and often having been excluded from the community due to the stigma, the children’s living conditions and health seriously deteriorate, leaving behind malnourished and neglected children with no support.

Your help is crucial for the children and other vulnerable groups in the community, such as widows and street children. Help to build or repair homes for vulnerable families, teach vocational skills to children to give them more opportunities in later life, provide vital love and support to young orphans and support poor families as part of a relief program offering food rations and clothing.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.
