Community Volunteer Project in a village in Kenya

Einsatzort: Kenia, Afrika
Aktions-Bereich: Sport, Unterricht & Bildung
Volunteer with children (teaching, sports, art) and experience life in a rural village on the Kenya coast. You will be part of an international group of volunteers and improve your English. 24/7 support by local team leaders. Volunteer organisation with 25 years of experience.

Projekt und Rolle der Freiwilligen

We have been working with communities across Africa and Asia for over 25 years. Our partnerships are long-standing, and we make sure every volunteer can make a positive impact during their volunteering. The start of a partnership is always the request of the local community to get support by international volunteers.

Our partner communities in Kenya are located on the coast, not far from Diani. You will have the opportunity to live alongside the locals, just as they live.

Volunteer tasks

We work with each one of our volunteers to find out what you are good at to make sure your talents are put to good use on our programs.

Just tell us what you can do and we’ll make sure you have the opportunity to share those skills in a way that will benefit one of our partner communities.

In most cases, you will work in rural government primary or secondary schools.

Options include
• Teaching: English, maths, science, music, arts and crafts, etc
• Sports coaching
• Art, drama, music & dance
• Community work

International groups of volunteers

We specialize in volunteering with international groups of volunteers so that you can make new friends from all over the world.

Ideally, you join a group from the beginning for a duration of 5, 12 or even 16 weeks.

But you can also join a group at another date and for another duration (minimum 3 weeks) – just use the contact form and tell us about your plans.

Become part of the community

Each day you can spend some time socialising with the villagers, usually over a cup of chai (sweet tea) or lunch. This is a great chance to make new friends - they will be keen to talk about where you are from, your family and life at home, whilst you can practice your Swahili (the language spoken in Kenya). The more you put into village life and getting to know the community, the more you will understand about this amazing country, and be able to improve your skills.

Improve your English

Talking with the other volunteers, your local colleagues and other Kenyans, you will have lots of opportunities to improve your English.

To start, you need to speak English to a level where you can communicate effectively in a group. If you are familiar with the European language framework, that’s at least level B1. With an Abitur/Matura, you usually have level B1 to B2.

Adventure travel after your volunteering

The volunteer project is followed by an optional 4 week period of independent group travel in East Africa, including 24/7 back up from our local representatives.

Individuell oder Gruppe?
We require volunteers to speak English to a level where they can communicate effectively in a group and are happy to help improve basic English
Besondere Qualifikationen:
Volunteers need to be ready for a challenge and looking for a cultural experience. No formal teaching experience required. This is not a tourist holiday, it is about cultural immersion and adventure.
Unterbringung & Verpflegung:
You will be accommodated in a basic African house in groups of 2 to 6 volunteers. There are no showers – that is done with a bucket, and toilets are normally a pit latrine (a hole in the ground). You will cook for yourselves and shop in the local market! There is normally no running water or electricity in the house but houses vary in terms of facilities.
