I am a professional teacher with more than 15 years’ experience both working with big and small community based organization education centers in rural areas . I am happily married and blessed with one child. I am in charge of a community based organization in Kenya-Githurai whereby am utilizing my skills by running a community school which is supporting more than 486 vulnerable children who missed out of state schools because in our community we only have two state schools serving a community of over 400, 000 residents.
The education center is based in the community but is run and managed by the local residents to create platform where local vulnerable children who missed out of free primary education and can't afford education from private institutions due to extreme poverty, neglect and forced into child labor and trafficking most of them live under bad condition.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Volunteer opportunity exists throughout in our organization and it involves teaching the vulnerable children from Monday to Friday as from 8:30AM to 4:00PM. Also volunteers will be involved in resource mobilization to ensure the school has funds to purchase school supply. Also volunteers will be involved in administration work at the center to facilitate effective implementation of the project.

Can host families
More than two
In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
