Volunteer and Intern with a host family
This is the Deal
Do you have a big heart? As a volunteer you will become like a big brother or sister to kids in a children's home. You will work alongside local staff to help with classroom teaching and homework help, childcare, and the daily operational running of the home. Volunteers are also encouraged to initiate their own work by organizing arts and crafts, music, dance, games, sports activities, and day trips for the children.
This role is suitable for a caring, motivated, and self-directed person who has a love for children and ideally has childcare experience.
As a volunteer teacher you will help to empower girls and boys by giving them the skills they need to overcome poverty and to make their voice heard. We have opportunities for volunteers to assist with teaching at primary and secondary levels, where volunteer teachers can teach core subjects, such as English, mathematics, science, social sciences, and can initiate extra-curricular activities. This role is suitable for a caring, motivated, and self-directed person. A teaching qualification is not required (except for some secondary teaching placements) but volunteers need to be confident in the above subjects and preferably have or be studying towards a university degree.
volunteers are placed with a Kenyan host family within Nairobi or other city for the duration of their stay.
