Volunteering

A volunteer trip to the Karibu Centre is an immersive experience and a chance to get intimately involved with Kenyan culture and communities. Bring your professional skills and put them to good use, building the next generation of Kenyan boys and girls. Come get involved!

In addition to skills-based projects you will also have the opportunity to engage with our full range of programs, from lending a helping hand in the classroom to planting organic vegetables in the farm. During your stay you will interact with local communities, experience the rural beauty and tribal culture of Kenya, and have the option to go on safari after your stay.
