The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Teach English and math at primary schools and community schools in Kenya. The students range from 5-12. The schools are both government schools as well as private non-profit funded by donors and the owner. The schools provides free education (following Kenya’s national curriculum) as well as medical care and social support. You can teach in Kenya year-round. The start dates are your choice.
Kenya is well-known for its incredible wildlife parks and Safaris, but of course there is so much more to this wonderful East African country. Kenya has over 70 tribal groups and even more languages - with English and Swahili spoken throughout most of Kenya. The country’s capital city Nairobi is often referred to as the birthplace of humanity.
Our volunteer locations and settings in Kenya are varied. In Nairobi volunteers live and work in one of Africa’s largest cities. Mombasa on the coast is the center of Kenya’s coastal tourism trade. For a more rural experience, you can live and volunteer with the Masai tribe in the Rift Valley. The hills of Machakos and the savannahs of Lumo are some of the most rural areas we send volunteers to worldwide.
