Childcare

We offer volunteer placements in Childcare Centers both in Nairobi and the rural areas. Childcare centers in Kenya can host 30 to100 children at any one time and there is always high demand for volunteer assistance. Volunteers on the Childcare project in Kenya are placed in a range of orphanages and childcare centers, some of which house and foster abandoned and orphaned children, some that have schools attached, and others where volunteers live at the centers full time. Each center accommodates children of differing ages; however volunteers generally work with children between the ages of 1 to 16 years old. Placements can include pre-schools, baby daycare centers and orphanage centers. Whether the children are at home or at school, the centers are always busy, and volunteers can help with all areas of daily activity. Tasks can include teaching, cooking, cleaning, feeding, washing, and caring for the children, in addition to entertaining and playing with them. The volunteers that work in Childcare Centers are asked to help with work wherever they can because help is usually needed in more than one area
