  • To facilitate capacity building among our members and communities by organizing training workshops in areas of resource mobilization, leadership and organization development

Vision

“To be the leading volunteer/internship organization in Africa”

Eligibility

  • Volunteers must be 18years old.
  • All volunteers are required to speak English well enough to communicate and carry out the project activities.
  • Volunteers are also encouraged to learn Kiswahili. It will be very much welcomed by the local people because It’s much easier to communicate with local people and children in the project.
  • Each volunteer should be motivated to complete their assigned projects successfully and have a heart willing to learn about Kenya and the local cultures.
  • Open mind and enthusiasm

Orientation and Evaluation

  • Upon arrival in Kenya, there is a mandatory 1 day orientation before going to the project site. Through this arrival orientation, we hope that volunteers will be encouraged to remain active during whole period of project and will gain the confidence to explore the local area by themselves.
  • During the project, there is a mid-evaluation in order to share experience and stories among volunteers and have a fun for our solidarity.
  • After finish the project, there is a final evaluation in order to finally look back and revive the meaning of the experiences.
