Volunteering in Africa requires flexibility, patience; those who are self-starters, and people who genuinely respect the host people and their culture. Volunteers never come here to teach the people western ways, nor are here to save the people. Volunteers come to share their energy and time with the people, to experience their culture first hand and to grow themselves.
It’s a strong statement when people try to make a difference in poor places, such as Africa. One of the biggest differences you will notice at the end will not be externalal but will be the difference inside of yourself. Most importantly, you will be changed forever because you will have a greater understanding of another culture, you will challenge your personal limits, and you will develop friendships.
Many travelers know where they want to go, but don’t know what to do once they get there. PRF-BBCTV program gives your travels a purpose and an itinerary. In some cases you may find a volunteer gig in your field of study. A volunteer position may give you the hands-on experience you won’t get stuffing envelopes for an internship. You may learn a new language, a new culture, and a new way of life. Flexibility and patience are the keys to having a satisfying experience.
It’s always our joy hosting people who have come to make a positive impact to the lives of the less fortune in Kenya, East Africa. We ensure to give them excellent conditions at local well selected families homes after a day of heard. The hosts are located in urban slums and rural villages a locality that allows our guest to get in touch with the real Africa way of life and very close to the volunteering stations.
We need volunteers who can bring new ideas, work with minimal supervision, and have a positive, self-starting attitude. We do not need just only young volunteers, but also older people with business skills and experience as well. We need those who can sort out book work and apply for grants. As we try to help all members of society, we need all ages of volunteers to help them function.
GAP YEAR IN KENYA
A gap year is a big step—one that means letting go and stepping outside of your comfort zone. It’s a year in which you’ll have the chance to step out into the world, gain valuable life experience and skills, and begin the transition into independence. Kenya is a beautiful country to be in Africa. Travel, Volunteer, Work in Kenya.
