Volunteer at an Orphanage in Kenya
Travel to the vibrant East African coastal city of Mombasa, Kenya, to volunteer at a children's center to provide education to vulnerable children and help improve literacy levels as well as environmental and social awareness. The centers provide free or affordable education to children who are from a local orphanage or whose families have little or no income.

During your time in Kenya you may have the opportunity to take the kids on day trips, learn Swahili, go on safari, explore Mombasa and its beautiful beaches and learn how grassroots organizations offer real opportunities and care for needy children.
