Location Nakuru, Kenya Overview At the International Humanity Foundation (IHF) we care for impoverished youth who have been neglected due to poverty, disease, and/or disaster through our Children’s Homes program. Volunteers who sign up to be a part of our Orphan Care in Kenya project make a very real impact on the children living in the IHF Children’s Home. Volunteers provide hands-on help with the home’s day-to-day operations, helping to ensure a family atmosphere. Volunteers actively participate in the lives of the children. You could find yourself organising games and workshops for the youth, playing with the children, working alongside them on the Peace Farm, assisting with counseling, helping the youth with homework and daily chores, and even completing small center maintenance projects. Eligibility IHF is looking for volunteers who can commit a minimum of 1 month as part of our Legacy Volunteer Program. Volunteers accepted to this program complete 4 hours of local tasks per day and 4 hours focusing on a personal legacy project which will build a sustainable solution for our center. Volunteers accepted to this program will have: a relevant degree from an accredited university, previous international travel and volunteer experience, confidence using the English language, deep empathy for impoverished children and their communities, and a commitment to our Core Values. Program Cost Volunteers in our Legacy Volunteer Program pay a weekly fee of $100 USD. Additional funding required for the implementation of your personal legacy project will be fundraised. Accommodation and meals prepared by a local member of staff are included in this program. Not included are your travel costs to and from our Kenya Center, initial visa fees, immunizations, travel insurance, and any spending money you wish to bring with you. Benefits In addition to making a notable difference in the lives of children, you will have plenty of time to explore the natural beauty of Nakuru, Kenya. • Make a difference in the lives of impoverished children • Immerse yourself in the local Kenyan culture • Sample Kenyan food staples • Gain international experience • Join a global network of IHF volunteers and alumni Deadline IHF accepts Orphan Care in Kenya volunteer applications on a rolling basis | Apply here
