This project is based in the town of Limuru, north west of the country’s capital Nairobi; it is located on the eastern edge of the famous Great Rift Valley and most famous for its amazing tea plantations! Limuru offers the chance to sample ‘laid-back Africa’ with beautiful scenery, rolling hills and some of the best tea around!  

  • Location: Limuru

Kenya's population is hugely affected by the struggles of HIV/AIDS, poverty and unemployment. It is known to be one of the poorest countries in Africa. Kenya'shealth care infrastructure suffers as a public service sector resulting in an enormous deficit of medical staff and resources. There are countless possibilities to impact the lives of those that are affected by these problems, such as in orphanages, schools, and public health centres surrounding the Limuru area.

 

Since June 2009 to date this project has become established in the three public health centers, and as a volunteers, you will acquire knowledge, share skills, and have the chance to build relationships within the local community. 

 

Your medical background will determine your placement at the various public health centres’ or hospital, where you will be able to gain observational experience alongside local staff and improve patient care efficiencies by assisting with medical record documentation.

PCEA Kikuyu Mission Hospital

This is a large general hospital that offers medical care to the community regardless of whether they can afford their treatment or not. The hospital is therefore buzzing with patients, and doctors attend to around 350 patients a day and so it is a great environment for you as a volunteer to experience and learn about healthcare services in Kenya. This hospital is particularly well-known for its specialized eye unit. It has a variety of departments and wards that volunteers can be placed, such as the maternity ward, orthopedics, the HIV and diabetic clinic, theatre/surgery, nursing and emergency care.

 

Karuri Hospital - For qualified healthcare practitioners only

Karuri is a small government hospital with an out-patient unit, dental unit and maternity unit. The maternity unit consists of a delivery room and ward, family planning, mother and child clinic and antenatal clinic. Karuri also has a small lab that you can experience. The hospital is also slowly phasing in a community outreach program that involves bringing basic healthcare to people that aren’t able to get to hospital.  At Karuri you'll have great opportunities to learn about all units as well as, if the opportunity arises, preparing and presenting workshops for staff or patients.

 

Public Health Centres

As a volunteer you are able to experience various departments including laboratory, maternity, pediatric and child-care unit, comprehensive care clinic (HIV & TB patients), counselling, orthopedics, administration, outpatient care and pharmacy.   There are a host of opportunities to gain observational experience, share knowledge with local qualified health professionals and learn about providing care with often limited resources. The exposure to healthcare care in an African country is certainly an eye-opener!

Childcare centres and Pre-schools in Limuru

 

There are over a million children in Kenya who have lost parents to AIDS, of which only 5% get any kind of support. There is a huge need for volunteers in childcare centres and children's homes.  There are several centres for vulnerable children in Limuru that we are involved with. These children come from backgrounds that have been affected by HIV/AIDS, abuse, poverty or illness. These children are in need of love and attention.  Many of them are developmentally delayed and need extra attention in order to promote their development. The children's ages range mainly between 4 and 15 years.

 

These childcare centres offer opportunities to become involved in:

  • Helping with the teaching of the children under the close supervision of local staff
  • Building/improving the facilities to make it feel more like home for the children: by painting pictures on the walls etc.  Some of the childcare centres we partner with are building to expand and improve their facilities. Your pair of hands will be greatly appreciated in this practical work
  • General care such as cooking for the children's meals or organizing sports and play activities to promote the well being of the children
  • Assisting the full-time staff in offering moral support and guidance to the children, training of basic life skills and any activities for various rehabilitative programmes in the childcare centres
  • Creating and teaching and children various arts and sport activities that make creative use of their time and hone their hidden skills and talents

The children are very energetic and will gladly challenge you to a game of basketball or football. You will have a chance to make a huge impact on these children's lives by spending time with them, and contributing to their learning and development.

Volunteer evening event nights (every Thursday)

This initiative involves all volunteers present at any given time.

It involves coming up with creative games, quizzes, trivia, talent shows, etc, that helps with team building amongst the volunteers.

Your weekends are your free time to spend as you please. You may like to relax and chill out at the volunteer accommodation or take part in some of the optional activities available such as an exciting safari in one of Kenya’s famous and beautiful national parks.

 

Masai Mara

Most visitors to Kenya make time to experience the Masai Mara National Reserve, the northern extension of the Serengeti. Well known for the renowned migration of 1.4 million wildebeest (usually between July and November), the Masai Mara is famous for its prolific game-viewing and abundance of predators all year round, and boasts the country's highest wildlife density. Spend your days exploring the beautiful surroundings and searching for those unforgettable wildlife encounters. The Mara experience is a must and will never disappoint.

 

The in-country team will also have plenty of suggestions on things to do and places to visit during your time off.

What were the highlights of your trip?

Getting to meet with a bunch of new people was an amazing experience. Everyone was from different parts of the world, yet there were so many similarities that merged us into one big family even though it was only for a short while. The Maasai Mara Safari trip was drop-dead gorgeous. A positively stereotypical scene of Africa in which I had always wanted to see as a kid watching Walt Disney's "Lion King". And ironically, the Westgate Mall incident occured right before our group of volunteers was going to go there - we turned the car around on time, panicked. But yet it only made the trip much more memorable.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1. Bring a lot of extra money, but keep most of it back at your room. The people in the local markets will try to squeeze every shilling out of you. 2. Be sure to visit Nairobi, a very lovely town. 3. Go on to some kind of Safari trip (Crecent Island, Maasai Mara, etc.) - this is more than worth the money.
