Volunteer Kenya

Kenya, with its population of around 40 million, is, in many ways, best known as an African holiday and safari destination and has one of Africa's better economies. However that belies the fact that for the 79% of the population who live in rural areas life is harsh with a life expectancy of just 56.6 years. In fact, Kenya is in 145th place out of 186 countries when ranked in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards of a country in 2013. Classified as a water scarce country, 52% of the population don't have access to safe water, there is generally poor health care provision with one doctor for every 10,000 people and HIV affects 6.3% of the population.

Volunteer work in Kenya ranges from construction and conservation work to working in schools and orphanages, city slum outreach and teaching sustainable farming techniques. There are also many volunteer opportunities in health care, HIV prevention and the rolling out of anti-viral programs.  Volunteer work is big business in Kenya and you have to work hard to get past the big international projects to drill down to the smaller, Kenya based and run volunteer work programs that make a real difference to the live of Kenyans in need rather than exist to line the pockets of the volunteer recruitment businesses!. If you are in Kenya undertaking a volunteer opportunity, ensure you leave time for a bit of tourist activity whilst you are there not least because you can find the "Big Five" animals of Africa in Kenya but can also witness one of the natural wonders of the world ~ the annual great wildebeest migration of some two million animals as they cross the Serengeti in neighbouring Tanzania to the Massai Mara. Also visit Mount Kenya and chill out on the warm and tropical climate beaches on its Indian Ocean coastline. If you run or know of a volunteer work project in Kenya let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!
