Volunteer with us in Thika, Kenya
AfCiC welcomes volunteers with open arms. There are 1001 ways to get involved, and we have had people from every walk of life working with us. So, are you looking to get involved and make a difference? Do you have skills, enthusiasm or experience that could help change the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable children while enriching your own? Get in touch if any of this resonates with you.
AfCiC works in both Thika, in Kenya, as well as in the UK, so there are plenty of opportunities to visit us and volunteer with us, no matter your location, and you will invariably be part of a like-minded, committed team, where your contribution will make a real impact.
