Volunteer in Kenya

One of the best things about volunteering with Hatua is the variety of work you can do. Hatua matches volunteers with organizations working within their field of interest. If your interests lie in education, library services or project management, you can volunteer in Kenya directly with Hatua.

Other volunteer opportunities through our partners in Likoni include teaching at a Primary school, assisting at an orphanage, doing public health outreach and coaching football.

Apply by emailing volunteer@hatualikoni.org with your completed application form (right of page). We are excited to hear from you!

Volunteer in KenyaLife in Likoni

Likoni is one of poorest counties in the country. The 175,000 people living here are cut off from the rest of the city by the port entrance, and can only access the rest of the city by ferry. Overcrowded classrooms, high unemployment, and insufficient infrastructure are some of the challenges faced by residents of Likoni.

Hatua’s programs strive to empower youth to overcome those challenges through education.  Hatua volunteers help us with the wide variety of projects involved in implementing our programs, and have the opportunity to work with other great community organzations serving children and youth in Likoni.

About our volunteer pVolunteer in Kenyarogram

Our volunteer program starts with a week-long orientation to introduce volunteers to Likoni, Mombasa, the Swahili language and Coastal culture.

Volunteers stay at Pungu Villa, our volunteer house overlooking the Indian Ocean, or can choose to stay with a local family in Likoni.

Our Volunteer Coordinator ensures that our volunteers are healthy, comfortable and feel supported throughout their stay. We can also advise and help arrange any excursions that volunteers may wish to take during their down time.
