Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to actively support the building of strong communities through the provision of our services, and the active participation of individuals in them. This includes creating opportunities for productive cross-cultural collaboration, economic development and personal progression.
It is to promote volunteering, ethical travel and cultural opportunities, and use them as a medium to enable the inclusion of disadvantaged youth into society, education and employment, by providing a more positive future to some of the world's poorest people.
We help build safe classrooms, develop income generating activities with our projects, establish feeding and healthcare programs and sponsor students into further education.
We don't charge the high fees that exclude certain demographics from taking part in the projects, and we do use most of our profits to make a real difference at home and abroad.
Currently 65% of the fees from our volunteer placements go directly to the host community, 15% towards supporting our youth projects, and 20% for our support during the project and admin costs. We send 100% of all donations made to our projects and do not retain any commission.
Our 'Global Impact Fund' is financed through the income raised from our volunteers' fees and donations, and support our community development goals that form the main focus of the work that Strong Linx International do; our aim is maximum positive impact . These goals have all been set up with close consultation of our partners in Kenya, who are the best people to clarify what is needed where, and by whom, for the benefit of their own communities. They are delivered in partnership with them.
Strong Linx International works with our partners for them to become increasingly self-sustainable, and will support youth, environmental, health, education, conservation and construction projects in our project countries. Part of our work is empowering local businesses, developing income generation schemes and giving them the opportunity to sell their products through us to an international market.
