About Program

The Abandoned Children’s Foundation International Volunteering (ACFIV) is a smaller volunteer organization servicing the country of Kenya. The ACFIV is a U.S. based nonprofit organization that is 501 (C) 3 tax exempt. When you volunteer with us, you will get a personal and local experience that larger organization simply cannot offer volunteers. Also, your program fees actually go to supporting our orphanages and allow us to build new orphanages to care for more children. We offer international volunteering programs in three different categories; Teaching, Orphanage, and Medical. Our programs are very affordable, starting at only $400. Our fees are hassle free, meaning the price listed is the price you pay and there are no additional deposits (airfare is not included). We would love to service your volunteer need, while allowing you to help a great cause.

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.

Program Impact

You will have a lasting impact, because you will be volunteering with the Abandoned Children's Foundation provids the support and care for the orphanages and school you volunteer at. We are NOT a broker that sends volunteers to orphanages and schools not under our care.

Yes, I recommend this program

Go to Kenya with ACF!

I had the most fantastic time. I spent four weeks there and everyone was really supportive. I felt safe and like I was with extended family, they're super welcoming. Everything was done to make sure I was ok and comfortable, and I had fun meeting new people. The children in the school and orphanage were lovely and it was great being able to to teach them (I'm not a teacher) and help them out, even just playing with them and doing games. I'm really pleased I went with this organisation because it is just family run and small- so it's personal and you have people that are looking out for you. I was really sad to come home to England and will definitely go again one day.

What would you improve about this program?
Maybe have set goals for what you want the volunteers to achieve so they have more direction for their time spent away.
