Volunteer with Action for Children in Conflict in Kenya

Our Kenya volunteer programme is unique in that it offers a tailor made volunteer experience: we aim to match volunteers’ roles to their specific skills, experience and areas of interest, enabling both the volunteer and the charity to get the most out of collaboration.

Who can volunteer? Adults of both sexes 21 years+ (School Holiday Club volunteers 18yrs+)

Commitment: We ask the majority of our volunteers to commit to a minimum of 3 months and preferably 6 months.

Cost: For volunteers who stay 3 months a minimum project contribution of USD900 is requested, plus all costs related to travel, accommodation at our rented house (approximately 200USD a month) and living expenses in-country. For 6 months an USD 1200 project contribution is requested plus all costs related to travel, accommodation and living expenses in-country.

Please note that your project contribution will be used specifically for the project which you choose to work on.

What we can offer you: a volunteership suited to your skills and interests, social activities and a full-programme of support during your time in Kenya and professional references at the end of your volunteership. AfCiC volunteers have new and unique experiences, form many friendships, gain new skills, develop personally and professionally, and become part of an organisation that makes a positive difference in children’s lives in a very direct, effective way.

For Kenyan students seeking internship and volunteer opportunity, we charge a fee of Kshs 2,000 per month as the project fee. If interested, please contact the email address below. We would  love to hear from you, and be able to partner together in the future.
