Hakuna Matata - THE song that shaped our childhood - thanks to Mr. Walt Disney and his animated cartoon of The Lion King. We know the meaning of the words right away from the feeling we get from Timon and Pumbaa’s carefree song and dance. Hakuna Matata perfectly describes the lifestyle of Kenyans. In Swahili, the official language of Kenya, it could be translated as, "There are no worries/difficulties."

Program Information

Community Project: Support local farmers

Agriculture is one of Kenya's most important economic pillars. In many parts of the country, agriculture is the main source of income. As a volunteer, you can support local farmers in their daily work as part of our agriculture project. Be it in livestock, in vegetable, fruit or coffee growing, the local farmers are grateful for every helping hand.

Teaching English in Gatanga

Although English is one of the official languages of Kenya, students in rural areas often have little or no opportunity to practice and improve their English language skills. What is missing here is the intercultural exchange. Our teaching project aims to change this! As a volunteer, you will help to shape and improve the English level of the local students through games and fun.

Medical Project in Gatanga

In Kenya, as in many other developing countries, the health sector is far from being well developed. Often many people have no access to any medical facilities. Usually there is a lack of funds and the residents can not afford to see a doctor. While there are state health services and hospitals in many small communities, they usually don't have enough staff and are limited in equipment. For this reason, the medical project was founded in Gatanga. Volunteers support the doctors and nurses in their daily work. Anyone who already has sound medical knowledge will be given the opportunity to take on tasks with more responsibility.

Health service in Eldoret

Through this project, a hospital is supported near Eldoret. In general, volunteers help the doctors, dentists and clinicians in their daily work. Tasks include:

the dressing of wounds


the writing of health reports


moral supports fo patients


giving injections


issuing Medicine


give first-aid to patients with minor injuies

Wildlife

Because of industrialization, poaching, and displacement from their natural habitat some giraffes species are close to extinction. The Rothschilds giraffe is one of the most endangered species and can only hope for the help of their biggest enemy: humans. In the refuge station which is located south of the capital Nairobi some Rothschild's giraffes are kept species-appropriate and protected. Volunteers in the giraffe center will support the team with the following tasks:

cleaning


cooking food


general animal care


guiding visitors and educate them about the life and behavior of giraffes


support the veterinarians depending on your previous experience in the field of animal welfare and animal medicine

Social Work

The suburbs of Nairobi give you the opportunity to engage in different social projects. For one, you can help the street children project that gives former street children the opportunity to be settled again. Some of the children and young people live in the home where they receive regular meals, medical care, and clothing.

For all volunteers who want to offer a helping hand to people with limitations, the following project in Sikri provides a very special opportunity. You support the visually impaired and deaf during their training in the areas of agriculture and animal husbandry. On the field, you show them, among other things, how to harvest, control weeds, and teach them about the watering systems. On the animal farm, you help them feed and care for the animals.
