Program Details

We want you to get as much out of their experience as possible whilst at the same time, making a difference in the lives of some of the most poverty-stricken people in Kenya. We need volunteer classroom assistants to help out on a daily basis at the TheGen Foundation Academy Schools both Early Child Development(ECD),Primary and High Schools. As classes are large, it is not possible for the teachers to provide one to one support for every child and so classroom assistants are always welcome.

Apart from Teaching, they will be able to offer Medical Service, Building and construction,environmental,social cultural diversity among other interesting exposure projects in the community.


Activities & Shift

Medical Internships (Primary healthcare and Tropical medicine) Rural business development specialists Pre-med placements Agriculturalists Teachers (primary and secondary) in ESL and science in particular Lay volunteers to help with administration and ancillary clinical work Any persons willing to give schools presentations or to work as patient helpers in hospitals. Placements are ideally for a minimum of three months (with two weeks off mid-placement for independent travel in Kenya). However, we will consider well qualified volunteers for periods as short as four weeks. Most volunteer placements are for periods under six months, but some can be for up to two years. As the project works year-round, volunteers are accepted at any time subject to space being available.
