Volunteering in Kenya Nairobi: Orphanage / Child Care

Volunteering in Kenya, There are 25 beautiful children residing at the orphanage, and four full-time staff, namely a cook, night guard, general hand and teacher. In addition, there are 60 children who attend kindergarten at the orphanage compound from the village, and three teaching staff. Majority of the population understand and speak English, even though Swahili is commonly used.

As a volunteer, you will primarily assist with the daily care of the kids; including feeding and clothing, teaching basic English. You can play games, arrange activities, create arts & crafts projects and share your time and caring with these wonderful children.  Prior experience not necessary, volunteers should have a lot of patience, an open mind and a sense of adventure.
