HIV Prevention Volunteering in Kenya

This is where you come in!   What...

What Our Volunteers Say!

Volunteering in South Africa is very popular with our volunteers. The scenery and the animals are a big part of that, we're sure! Check out what just a few of our recent volunteers had to say after their trips:

02 November 2017

"I met some awesome people on my trip from all around the world and was warmly welcomed by the Kenyan people. I would recommend Agape to anyone as they were very organised and professional but fun and enthusiastic at the same time."

16 August 2017

"All of my expectations for a memorable summer were met and more. The Agape staff were very helpful and able to answer any questions that I had regarding my placement or cultural differences. I would highly recommend volunteering in Kenya through Agape for a memorable, rewarding experience which you'll never forget!"

05 July 2017

"I can truly say that is was the best three weeks of my life so far and I would recommend it to anyone; Kenya was the most amazing, beautiful carefree country I have ever been to. I am already counting down the days until I can go back!"
