Become a Voluntourist in Kenya
The International Humanity Foundation (IHF) is seeking forward-thinking, dynamic individuals of all ages/backgrounds to contribute to our children’s home in Kenya.
● Work with children, teach, organise workshops/activities
● Assist with our survival projects in the community
● Learn about poverty and development
● Still have time to explore and travel
Each IHF center is a product of its environment and follows the cultural code and norms of its host community, so there are different programs in each center. Our Kenya center is a children’s home and also provides emergency relief to the surrounding community. This is the biggest IHF center, with approximately 100 kids. The kids are from the marginalised Pokot tribe, whose conditions are amongst the worse in Kenya. Living conditions in this region are harsh, and we provide basic needs such as a home, food, and access to education to children who would otherwise go without. We also run livestock donation projects and other initiatives to relieve the extreme poverty where we can.
IHF Voluntourists teach English, and assist with the care of our children and organise activities. At the centers, IHF requires its Voluntourists to work four hours a day at the center, six days a week. There is time to sightsee, but work remains a priority. This is an ideal opportunity to gain experience in development firsthand, but still have time to explore the local area. The center offers access to numerous wildlife parks and safaris.
● Cost: $150 per week, no application fee
● Basic food and accommodation included
● Minimum stay 2 weeks
● Fluent English is required
