Volunteer at Nyumbani for the experience of a lifetime
At Nyumbani, we depend on the wide-ranging expertise and willing enthusiasm of a hardy corps of volunteers from around the world.
When you volunteer at Nyumbani, you will have hands-on experience helping some of the poorest and most vulnerable children and families in Kenya – survivors of HIV/AIDS.
All levels of expertise are welcome, year-round. Come join our caring professional staff working in Nyumbani’s areas of greatest need. You will enrich the lives of hundreds of children and family members affected by the HIV/AIDS crisis in Kenya.
Volunteer in Kenya
Nyumbani Children’s Home: Volunteers at the home are needed when the children are out of school in April. Volunteers teach English and math, and work with children on sports, various activity clubs and the computer lab. Volunteers at the Nyumbani Children’s Home are asked to come two weeks in advance of the school break and to stay as long as two weeks after the break.
Nyumbani Village: Up to 16 volunteers at a time can be housed in the guest house at Nyumbani Village. Volunteers must commit to a minimum of two months and may stay up to six months. They may perform any tasks associated with the farm or social work, and may assist at the clinic.
Lea Toto Internship Program: Several universities have created programs with Nyumbani Lea Toto Community Outreach where students participate in medical and community outreach programs in high-poverty areas in and around Nairobi.
Two- and four-week Nyumbani volunteer trips are also available. Nyumbani volunteers must be 21 or over.
