Make a BIG difference to the lives of dozens of vulnerable children CPA supports a number of orphanages in Kenya, providing assistance to overworked local staff and helping to give children and babies a brighter future. Although local staff are extremely committed, they often rely on charities to supplement their stretched resourced.

This is where you come in!

Our placements are properly referred to as care homes or children’s homes. They exist to provide support and care for vulnerable and at-risk children. These kids may have living parents or a family who are not currently able to care for them. They provide care when a child’s family cannot, and aim to return the children to a stable family environment once the vulnerable period has passed. We place volunteers at a number of care homes and initiatives supporting children from the ages of 1 up to 16 and beyond.

What will You be doing?

As an orphanage volunteer in Kenya some of your duties will involve teaching small classes, as many children’s homes have schools attached. You will also help with running structured games and activities. Helping to foster a sense of family and community at the home is hugely important – some of the children will have lacked this all their lives. In addition, you will be expected to engage in a wide range of other activities, depending on the specific needs of your placement. This will include plenty of practical work such as cleaning, laundry, cooking and the dishes, as well as painting classrooms and gardening. If you’d like to find out more about volunteering at a children’s home in Kenya, apply now to hear from our specialist trip adviser.
