Volunteer Placements


Come and join our weekday ECD for the full experience of helping some of Kenya’s most vulnerable children, aged 3-7 years. Along side our school cook and teachers you will experience the highs and lows of ECD School life and should walk away with some great memories. Our children’s programme incorporates education, health, nutrition and life skills. Your placement will be varied based around these key areas. The main work is in the kitchen, garden, classroom and outdoor activities. You will help prepare meals, clean, perform general health checks, assist teachers, organise activities and other tasks which are all focused on the holistic development of children.


Teach children aged 3-7 years in our ECD for two days a week, and in a government primary school, aged 7-16 years three days a week. These are obviously two different levels of education being basic up to teaching in upper primary. You will teach along-side teachers on specific subjects and themes within the prepared lesson plans and schemes of work. As well as teaching, your tasks could be marking books, preparing for specific classes and activities, preparing teaching materials, organising    activities for the children such as sports, games, music and creative activities.

Office Support

We are growing as an organisation and so, our workload is also growing! This placement is one we value highly as the skills and capabilities you can offer, can be a significant boost for our operations end. Your contribution we are looking for can be any or a combination of organisational, analytical, creative, or technical experience. We value this kind of support as it saves us resources and moves us forward faster.  As a young NGO we have a lot of needs but below are the areas that stand out as priorities:

  • Grant and proposal writing
  • Fundraising
  • Content and copy across communications
  • Graphic and web design
  • Event and campaign management
  • Photography
  • Office support including data entry

Placement Dates & Length

Each month there are two start dates you can choose from: 5th or the 20th. The maximum number of people we can accommodate at any one time is six but if the dates you select are not available, we will offer you some alternatives. You can choose between one to eight weeks for your placement length. Applications should be made no less than two months before your flight departure.

Child Protection Policy

The rights of every child is a core reason as to why KCC exists. It is therefore imperative that each person coming to volunteer reads and understands our Child Protection Policy clearly and thoroughly.



For Kenyan’s living here locally, we do not charge a registration fee or programme fees. However you need to be staying or living in Naivasha and be able to sustain your living costs. We also do not provide any allowances or pay of any kind.

However your living costs are entirely your responsibility and we don’t allowances of any kind to volunteers. We also encourage you to fund raise for KCC within your friends and family.

We also encourage you to support KCC in whatever capacity you are able through fundraising. Every financial donation, no matter the amount can make a difference.


What we will provide is transport to placement and a school lunch meal at the ECD School. You will also receive a certificate at the end of your placement.
