Join us in making a difference in rural Kenya by lending your expertise and enthusiasm to local teachers and students. As you embark on this transformative journey, prepare to forge meaningful connections and expand your horizons together!
In the heart of rural Kenya, students and teachers eagerly await your arrival, ready to embrace the knowledge and experiences you bring. By complementing their already robust curriculum, you become an invaluable asset, enriching their educational journey in ways they never thought possible. Your presence opens doors to a more global perspective, exposing them to new ideas and fostering mutual learning.
For many local children, especially those in remote areas, the opportunity to interact with foreigners is a rare occurrence. English, one of Kenya’s official languages, often remains confined within the classroom walls, limiting their practice and confidence. Your presence alone can make a significant impact, as you engage with them in meaningful conversations and provide authentic language practice.
Upon arrival, you will be placed in a local school within the community. The specific placement will be determined by the needs of the community, availability, and, whenever feasible, your preferences. Embrace the opportunity to co-create lessons with the teachers, allowing your creativity to flourish. The youngest students especially enjoy sports, games, gardening, and singing, so let your imagination run wild.
The goal is to assist students and staff in their English language and subject mastery through engaging tasks that encourage practice and creativity. Feel free to introduce new ideas that promote cultural exchange and meaningful conversations among participants, staff, and students. If you have items or photos from your home country that can help illustrate unique facts or traditions, seize the chance to share an unforgettable lesson.
During extended holiday periods, when schools are on break, we may organize a special “day-camp” style English and Sports program for local children. As a participant, you will play a key role in running this program with the support of our coordinators, ensuring that the learning never stops.
From Monday to Friday, you will dedicate 3-5 hours each day assisting school staff with lessons and activities. Once back at the accommodation, you will have time to prepare your lessons for the next day, infusing them with your passion and creativity. A typical day might unfold as follows:
– Breakfast to fuel your day
– Engaging with the local school community
– A well-deserved lunch break
– Further support at the school
– Preparing lesson plans, tailored to inspire and empower
– Finally, sharing a delicious dinner, reflecting on the day’s experiences

Our Medical Program offers an exceptional opportunity for individuals with a medical background. Depending on your skill level and expertise, you’ll be assigned a range of tasks to support a local Kenyan medical center or hospital, providing vital assistance to those who face limited access to affordable and high-quality healthcare. It’s a chance to be part of something greater and help bridge the healthcare gap in underserved communities.
In remote areas, access to quality healthcare is a privilege enjoyed by only a few.

Your contribution will make a significant difference in the lives of individuals who rely on these services for their well-being.
Furthermore, we recognize that some villagers face challenges in reaching the hospital due to transportation limitations. This presents an extraordinary opportunity for participants to serve as backpack nurses. As a backpack nurse, you’ll have the unique responsibility of delivering healthcare services to patients who are confined to their homesteads. This entails embarking on challenging, enlightening, and adventurous journeys, often involving long-distance walks. After a rewarding day, you can unwind and rejuvenate by taking a refreshing dip in the pool at our accommodation.
The minimum duration for this program is two weeks, providing ample time for meaningful engagement. From Monday to Friday, you will spend approximately 4 to 6 hours each day assisting hospital staff and attending to patients.

– Assist at the local hospital or join the backpack nurse team, making a tangible impact on patient care
– Pause for a nourishing lunch, connecting with fellow healthcare professionals
– Continue your valuable assistance at the hospital, contributing to the well-being of the community
– Conclude the day with a satisfying dinner, reflecting on the experiences and knowledge gained
Please note that the schedule is subject to adjustments based on weather conditions, local circumstances, and unforeseen events. Flexibility is essential as we adapt to the dynamic nature of healthcare delivery.
Embarking on this medical adventure in Kenya will not only enrich your own knowledge and skills but also create a lasting impact on the lives of those in need. Join us in this exceptional opportunity to make a difference, forging bonds with the local community and advancing healthcare accessibility for all.
Embark on a heartwarming Childcare Placement program, where you’ll have the privilege of working with daycare and preschool children, ranging from 6 months to 6 years old. Whether you find yourself in a government day care or a charity-run facility in rural Kenya, this placement offers a remarkable opportunity for cultural exchange and nurturing the growth of happy, inquisitive, creative, and unique children.
The program revolves around engaging with students of varying ages, between 6 months and 6 years, depending on the specific placement. Your role will involve teaching and playing with these wonderful children, fostering their English language skills. It’s important to note that these students come from marginalized communities and seldom have the chance to practice English outside the school environment. You have the flexibility to choose whether you’d like to work with younger or older children, or even engage with all age groups. While you’ll be collaborating with local staff, you’ll also have the freedom to bring your own creative ideas to the classroom.
What matters most in this program is your attitude towards the children, rather than the specific teaching methods or interactions. Activities will be tailored to align with the school year, encompassing relevant environmental topics and current festivals. During holiday periods, special events and programs will be organized to keep the children entertained and engaged, adding to the vibrant atmosphere of learning and fun.
The Childcare program serves a dual purpose: not only does it bring joy and English language skills to the children through interaction with a native or highly proficient speaker, but it also offers you valuable insights into childcare practices and the Kenyan education system. It’s an excellent opportunity to form deep connections with students, teachers, and even parents, allowing you to play a meaningful role within the community.
From Monday to Friday, you’ll dedicate approximately 4 to 6 hours each day to assist the school staff with lessons and engaging activities. Once you return to the accommodation, you’ll have ample time to prepare for the next day’s lessons, ensuring a well-rounded educational experience. A typical day may include:
– Start the day with a satisfying breakfast, fueling your energy for the day ahead.

Kenya is renowned for its rich wildlife that freely roams the magnificent savannas. The wildlife is not only a vital part of the country’s economy but also an integral part of the local communities.

Within the conservancy, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with the local community, gaining insights into their unique coexistence with wildlife and understanding the profound impact of conservation efforts on their lives.
The minimum duration for this awe-inspiring program is 2 weeks, from Monday to Friday. During this time, you’ll spend approximately 4 to 5 hours daily in the conservancy, working closely with the wildlife conservationist and supporting local staff as needed. After an eventful day in the field, you’ll return to your comfortable accommodation, where you can reflect on the day’s activities and prepare for the next adventure.
