It's a great opportunity to donate your skills and time to helping others in need, while gaining hands-on medical experience and learning firsthand about medical care in Kenya. You will find the medical volunteer opportunity enlightening and rewarding.
Medical and Dental volunteers will start their service at orphanage and take to local schools, dispensary and villages. They will educate and guide these disadvantaged people about sanitation, hygiene, nutrition and provide first aid to people with small injuries.
The medical clinics treat a wide range of conditions like malaria, colds/flu, injuries, pregnancy and childbirth.
Our health volunteer opportunities are open to healthcare students as well as pre-med, pre-dentistry and pre-nursing students. As an overseas medical internship (medical students, nursing students or intern), you will work with local staff in support of the health care efforts.
Our programs are highly meaningful and in safe locations.
Program start & end date
Our volunteer programs are available all the year round, with flexible start and end dates.
Duration of placement
You can volunteer for as little as one week and still get rewarding experience, but you can stay for as long as you wish.
Work schedule & flexibility
We offer flexible work schedule where you can split your time between working on our projects and exploring other parts ofKenya.
Food & Accommodation
3 meals a day and safe accommodation are provided to all volunteers. You are welcome to stay with other volunteers at the orphanage compound or with a host family, but both places give you a chance to learn more about the Kenyan culture and language
Cost to volunteer
Volunteers are required to commit a fee of 140/week that caters for expenses of your meals, housing and support for our community projects. This is payable in cash upon arrival inKenya.
Our friendly staff will come to meet you at the airport on the day you arrive, and escort you to the airport on departure, by a car that we hire. The pre-departure information to the placement and program is done to offer volunteers to have basic knowledge of what is acceptable within the community, work type, general expectations etc.
We welcome volunteers from all over the world, regardless of their faith, age or academic backgrounds
