As a volunteer at Wale Wale Kenya you will get hands-on experience with development work in urban poor areas. You will be included in organizational work such as marketing and fundraising and hands-on practical work with the youth of Wale Wale Kenya. As a volunteer you will assist us with organizational work such as marketing and fundraising, help the youth with their homework during our Academic Follow-up Program, participate in dance, music and football sessions with the youth and help us produce photographs, film and music in our studio. However, we also strongly encourage creativity and appreciate new initiatives. As a volunteer you can stay for as long as you like, the minimum period being two weeks.
We offer accommodation right next to the Youth Center in Kibera. It is an apartment of high standard with hot water, WIFI, fully equipped kitchen and also with a great view of Kibera. The location allows you to shop groceries for your cooking in the local markets (at very low prices). The cost is 25000 ksh per month (250.00). Food costs roughly $20-30 per month.
We do not charge any fees. Our opinion is that you should not pay to work. We believe that both the organization and our volunteers have more to gain from a partnership built on mutual interest in working towards our goals. However, no organisations can survive without means and we do emphasize that a key part of the work will be connected to fundraising and marketing activities.
