Photos from our last trip!
This trip is a unique opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of those in need, while also experiencing the beauty and culture of Kenya. You will gain a sense of fulfillment from the impact you will make, as well as valuable personal and professional development through working with a team, problem-solving, and adapting to new environments.
The duration of the trip is flexible, but we recommend a minimum stay of 7-10 days to allow enough time for volunteering and sightseeing. However, volunteers are welcome to extend their stay if they wish.
There is no age limit for this trip, but volunteers must be at least 18 years old. However, younger volunteers may be considered on a case-by-case basis if accompanied by a responsible adult.
Our volunteers will work on various projects on the ground, including providing clean water and sanitation, renovating an orphanage, and distributing food parcels to those in need. The specific projects will depend on the needs of the local community and the skills and interests of our volunteers.
The charity trip will consist of roughly five days of volunteering on various projects, such as providing clean water and sanitation, renovating an orphanage, and distributing food parcels. There will also be a minimum of 2 days dedicated to sightseeing, such as a safari and diving. These activities are optional and not the trip’s main focus, but they allow volunteers to experience Kenya’s local culture and natural beauty.
It is recommended that volunteers receive certain vaccinations before travelling to Kenya. These may include vaccinations for hepatitis A and B, typhoid fever, yellow fever, and rabies. (Most GPs in the UK only suggest getting Hep-A, Typhoid and Yellow Fever vaccines. Some GPs do it for free, whereas in some cases, you have to pay for them). It is important to consult with a healthcare professional at least 4-6 weeks before the trip to determine necessary vaccinations and to receive any required booster shots. Volunteers should also make sure that their routine vaccinations, such as measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, varicella (chickenpox), and polio, are up to date. You can check this website for more details.
All travellers to Kenya 12 years of age and over will be, at all ports of entry, required to show proof of either COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test conducted no more than 72 hours before departure.
Travellers with no proof of vaccination or a PCR test, or with flu-like symptoms, will be required to undergo a rapid antigen test at their own cost of 30 USD. Those who test positive on antigen RDT will be required to take a PCR test at their own cost of $50 and self-isolate as per Ministry of Health guidance on isolation.
