  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    ACCOMMODATION.

    Volunteers will be staying with the host family that will be one way of exchanging culture, way of living and interacting.

    The volunteer can use the kitchen to prepare their own meal or share meals with the family. We can introduce the volunteers to African lifestyles and food. They will be a part of the family doing their stay and hopefully after.

    We will provide blankets, bedsheets, clean water for showering, but bottled drinking water is available to purchase in shops nearby ( around 5 minutes walking ) if you would prefer).

    Volunteers will have an opportunity to learn how to prepare local meals, local languages and local culture hence also they will have an opportunity to show the host family their culture. The host family will assist in carrying out Laundry services which will only be done once per week.





    Volunteers are encouraged to carry their personal things like brush, toothpaste, charger cable.

    As a host, we can help our volunteers to experience Kenya adventures with organizing a cheap safari for you and take you for tours within Nairobi, where we have our national museum, a national park, elephant orphanage, giraffe center, and Masaai market.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I love travelling so during our free time we can visit parks, new places in Kenya.. am a sensitive person and open minded. Anyone that comes in my life must always be ready to new things, great expectations and beautiful results.

    In your time off we encourage you to get to know Kenya and all its beautiful sceneries. Whether you would like to visit the sunny beaches by the Coast or do a wild animal safari, we have got you covered and can help you plan the most amazing experiences. Even without living the city of Nairobi you can visit the National Park, the only wild animal reserve located inside a capital, and see rhinos, lions, zebras, and a lot more. If you like hiking a morning in Ngong Hills is always a good idea or a walk in Karura Forest. Kenya is filled with magical places and has something for everyone’s taste, you just have to be willing to look for it – with a little help from us obviously.
    Regarding transportation we usually walk from the house to the project and back. Longer distances can be done by matatu, the local public transport known as matatu or boda boda, motorbikes. Uber and Bolt are also available and have relatively cheap prices

    We give certificate of Appreciation after Volunteering just way of appreciation and celebrating you for good work and help.
