Internships & volunteering
In the middle of a gap year and want to travel and volunteer or need an internship with bit more adventure? Maybe we can help you find a great internship/volunteering position in Kenya.
There are enough different organizations eagerly awaiting your help. You might be able to intern/volunteer at a:
- Legal nonprofit organization
- Humanitarian organization
The volunteering that I will be arranging, will mainly be localized in and around Mombasa, because I can inspect the organization before you start working there.
Mombasa is Kenya’s second city and is situated at the coast. It is a city visited by a lot of tourist. Mombasa is a very accessible city where you can easily find your way. The people are very welcoming and there are many cultures that come together here. It has a very relaxed atmosphere, sometimes it is too relaxing which means you will have to be more patient then you’re used to.
What should you arrange?
Before you go to Kenya you have to be sure some practical things are arranged. Below you will find a brief checklist:
- The validity of your passport
- The appropriate work visa
- The vaccinations and malaria medication
- The right travel and medical insurance
What can I do for you?
First I’m going to start looking for a suitable place for you to intern/volunteer. A organization which will meet your requirements and could really use your help. Besides searching for suitable place, I will help you find a good place to stay. Your own room with a host family or shared apartment where you can relax and where you will feel safe. Finally I will help you to prepare for your internship/volunteering and will also give you guidance during your time in Kenya.
