WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO VOLUNTEER IN KENYA?
Volunteers pay fees to help sustain and cater for the local projects and communities involved. Your fees enable us to directly contribute to the goals and needs of the your placement. The resources within these communities are very much limited and cannot support your costs for meals, accommodation, transportation and supervision etc.
VOLUNTEER FEES TAKE CARE OF THE FOLLOWING :-
Airport Pick-up: On Arrival in Nairobi and Departure: Once you give us your flight details our project co-ordinator and a driver will be at the JKIA airport to pick you up.
Orientation: Including important pre-departure information as well as on-site orientation on local culture, history and customs.
Placement arrangement: All your placement arrangement and well being while volunteering is our big concern and priority and ensure your placement is secure and safe. Our coordinator will provide whatever support you may need at any step along and our supervisor will always assist at the ground.
Accommodations/Meals: We carefully select host family connecting you to the culture and social, economic and political events in the community and country. You are provided with three meals a day and you will be flexible to intervene and assist in cooking/food preparation etc.
Transportation to the project: Volunteers are transported to and from their placement location by shared bus/shuttle.
Certificate of Completion/Participation: You will be provided with a certificate showing your participation with us and a recommendation letter as an appreciation for having chosen to volunteering with us.
Farewell: Is arranged on the last day either at the host family, School, or at the Community resouce center as a way of appreciating your time and ability to give to the community in need. It is a day of exchanging gifts and celebrate for having successfully worked with people you didn't know before.
