Go Volunteer Africa offers opportunities to volunteer during your spring break with community grassroots projects in Kenya. The projects are set up in various communities across Kenya. Some of the communities have dirt roads that turn to sticky mud in the rainy season and dust in the dry season.
These communities struggle to meet their basic needs and strive to put their children in school. Main jobs include selling fruits and vegetables, small scale animal rearing and other manual labor jobs.
- Work with our arts and music project
- Coach sports and games
- Help support some income generating and skills development project for youth
- Teach English and other languages
- Take up a medical care job
- Get involved in our environment conservation project.
Volunteers in our Kenya spring break volunteer holidays experience traditional Kenyan life and participate in daily activities such as visiting elderly villagers, collecting water from a well, teaching children in outside classrooms, assisting in the sports empowerment, feeding animals as well as health outreach programs.
The spring break volunteer holidays in Kenya offers opportunities to get involved in healthcare outreaches, teaching English, youth education, animal rearing, water and sanitation (including well and waterway construction) and project planning and management or other skills that can help us transform these communities.
All our spring break trips and tours allow you to discover the wonders of Kenya, while doing meaningful and rewarding community work. This is a great opportunity to explore life in rural Kenya, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.
It is important for potential volunteers to understand that the culture in Kenya is quite different from what you are accustomed to. Volunteers should bring with them an easy-going, open-minded and relaxed attitude. Locals are curious, very friendly and social people.
While Go Volunteer Africa will endeavor to maintain a daily routine, volunteers should understand that things move slowly in Africa. Relax and enjoy the slow pace. Remember that life in Africa is not as organized and predictable as life in developed countries.
Although volunteer work can be very busy and active, at other times work is determined by many number of factors including weather, availability of resources, whether a relevant contact has turned up, cultural activities etc.
