Street Teaching Project, Nairobi

About

Join us working hands and feet on the street alongside the women, babies, and children who live on the streets of Kenya. Volunteering with our street children program will give you the opportunity to help one or more children who are living their lives daily on the street. These children do not have family, they live, eat and sleep on the streets and in parks. They can often be found begging in downtown the city center where they can sometimes be harassed and arrested, by helping to feed them we can take some of that pressure off them.

Precaution

Be prepared to see the stark reality of how these children survive from day to day. Be prepared to commit to volunteering for a minimum of 4 weeks. You will never be alone on this project but we do caution that you should also be prepared to be asked for money while downtown in the city of Nairobi. Be self-motivated and goal orientated. Have an open mind and not judge these children, as they did not choose to live their lives on the street.
