Volunteer In Kenya
Look no further if you're looking for a meaningful volunteer experience in one of the most remarkable and stunning countries in Eastern Africa! Volunteer in Kenya, and enjoy some of Africa's best wildlife attractions, stunning topography, and the ethnically-diverse culture while uplifting the lives of the people.
Volunteer in Kenya, and experience the land of incredible natural beauty. The country straddles the Equator and covers the low-lying, fertile coastal region, fringed with entrancing coral reefs and islands, which gradually rises towards the coastal plain to a dry region covered with savanna and thorn bush. Even more incredible are its people, who are warm, friendly and promises a whole new cultural experience. There are fifty-two tribal groups in Kenya, and many remain untouched by the modern world, while others infuse their own cultural heritage into it. Many groups have all but eluded the modern world, while others bring their cultural heritage with them into it. Kenya has a lot to offer, from the extraordinary landscapes of Kakamega's rainforests to pristine Indian Ocean beaches, the rolling grasslands of the Masai Sara, to the best wildlife safaris in the world. Despite all this and the growing number of tourist arrivals, Kenya is plagued by poverty, corruption and high rate of HIV/AIDS infection. New Hope Volunteer is working with local organizations to help alleviate the situation and empower the poor and the needy. Contact us now to be part of this journey and embark on a life-changing adventure!

In recent years, volunteering has become more of a business than charity. Many organizations in the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand run volunteering programs solely for profit. But this is not the case with New Hope Volunteers. Our aim is to offer World's Most Affordable volunteer program (without compromising the quality) so that all volunteers, irrespective of their income level, can volunteer to serve humanity and enrich their life. In our program, except our registration fee of $269,which we need to advertise, cover office expense and pay salary, volunteers pay their money directly to the host family and project (or country coordinator). This ensures that 100% of your money goes for you.
In addition to our registration fee of $269, here you find the world's most affordable weekly program fee.

New Hope Volunteers will arrange for the accommodation and meals throughout the volunteering duration in the Kenya program. Volunteers will either stay in a hostel or with host families. Our host families have all been carefully screened before being selected to participate in New Hope's volunteer programs. Our host families also have significant experience in accommodating international volunteers, and at least one member of the family will be able to communicate with you in English. Host families offer a warm, comfortable and safe home, where you will receive three local meals per day.
New Hope also offers extensive support for you so that you feel right at home while volunteering. The main person supporting you throughout your program will be our country coordinator in Kenya, who is also in-charge of your volunteer program. Whenever possible, the coordinator will call or visit you to see if you are happy and satisfied with your project. You will also have the coordinator's mobile phone number that you may call any time should an issue arise. Our project staff will also guide and help you throughout the program.
