Volunteering in Kenya is where it all begun for Agape.

Situated on the East African coast, Kenya is where Agape Volunteers all started and remains our most popular destination by far. The people are amongst the friendliest in the world and volunteering here will guarantee you a cultural experience to remember. From the chance to spot the big 5 on the planes of the Maasai Mara, to experiencing the Maasai markets, making lifelong friends and meaningfully contributing to your placement, we can assure you this will be a life-changing trip. We run extensive programs in teaching, orphanage work, HIV / AIDS work, sports education and medical. We also run large numbers of extra activities within Kenya to provide the full volunteering experience. These include; trips to IDP camps, city tours (both included in price), safaris, beach getaways and much more. Being our most established destination, Kenyan programs also benefit from being the cheapest on offer with Agape.

By volunteering with Agape, you will be contributing to established projects in areas which are in real need. Most of our projects are based in Dagoretti and Waithaka, both based on the outskirts of Nairobi. You will be living and working alongside local people, exploring a new culture whilst helping them to build a better future. Although you will predominantly be living with other volunteers, your experience won't be complete without getting out and making friends with the locals, these friendships can prove to be the strongest of all. If there are two project areas you are interested in, you can even combine two placements to create your own unique experience, and since one of greatest things you can give is your personal understanding and sympathy, as well as grammatically correct English sentences, the skills used are very transferable and simple.

Kenya is where Agape Volunteers all started and remains our most popular destination by far.

You will be assigned your own personal trip adviser who will guide you through the booking process and answer any questions you might have. They will be available to support you from receiving your application until finishing your placement. They will send you a copy of the information booklet relating to your placement to make sure you are as well prepared as possible. We want you to be completely happy with your booking, so your programme fees are fully refundable up to 30 days before you travel. You can also volunteer with a friend or as part of a group.

If you feel unable to volunteer or wish to make a difference without giving up extended periods of time, you are invited to donate to one of our projects instead. 80p in every £1 donated goes directly to fund our projects in the places where it is needed most.
