Kenya has orphanages which house HIV/AIDS orphans, many of whom are themselves HIV positive. Other children in the orphanages were simply abandoned. Our programs are located in Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru and several smaller towns. Due to the stigma attached to HIV/AIDS, orphans are often neglected in Africa.
The orphans you will come into contact with during your placement have been extremely disadvantaged by their circumstances and will have endured a great deal of hardship - much of it holding back their development. The children in our Kenyan orphanage projects have never experienced loving, caring and stable relationships.
As an orphanage volunteer in Kenya you will be supplying much-needed attention, compassion, hope, encouragement, support and love to vulnerable children. As a result, you will be helping the children to become empowered to face the challenges of their life, poverty and possible exploitation. Voluntary work in a Kenyan orphanage is very fulfilling.
What to Expect?
Love Volunteers is a not-for-profit organisation and is one of the most affordable ways to help out in a developing country while being immersed in the local culture.
Cost includes accommodation, food, an airport pick-up, orientation and 24/7 in-country support.
A Love Volunteers registration fee is charged in addition to the program fees and covers any placements you undertake for twelve months from the start of your first placement. The fee is refundable if you choose not to volunteer more than three months prior to the start of your initial placement. This fee ensures 24/7 pre- and post-placement support from Love Volunteers, checking and vetting of local organisations, a comprehensive information pack, as well as administration and marketing costs.
All transaction costs pertaining to online, bank or wire transfers are additional to the program fee and must be covered by the volunteer.
