There are so many ways that you can get involved and see the difference you make. Maybe you have friends you could tell about Challenge Africa or you would like to volunteer in Kenya or help us raise vital funds?
You can choose us as your designated charity for all sorts of sponsored events – runs, skydiving, trekking or cycling. Tell us about it or even write a guest blog post for us. Your supporters can either donate online or download a CA_sponsor-form
We give everyone the opportunity to volunteer, and our exciting and innovative Challenge Yourself initiative means we also support UK volunteers from more deprived backgrounds including prisons and rehabilitation projects. Overcoming the challenges of fund-raising, travelling and living in rural Africa can have a hugely beneficial impact on volunteers whilst making a lasting difference to the host community.
We want YOU!
Challenge Africa’s volunteer programme is now recruiting enthusiastic people who share our vision that together we can make a difference. Whether working on a project in Kenya with our local team or helping us fundraise in the UK, our volunteer programme gives you the opportunity to create and experience positive change through challenge.
Challenge Africa sends volunteers to live and work with our friendly Kenyan teams. Kenyan placements are entirely flexible, according to your availability, interests and skills. Placements are available in the following areas:
- Teaching at the local Primary School or Uzima Pre-Primary Centre
- Assisting in Abimbo Training Centre programmes including sewing, carpentry, book-keeping, computing, drama workshops and sports activities
- Helping the Home-Based Care programmes by caring for orphans and offering support to people living with HIV/AIDS
- Farming, Construction and painting
- Medical placements take place either in the community or at government run clinics
The whole experience was so much more than I could have hoped for- Bethany Cuffe-Fuller
Medical professionals are placed at government run health centres in the region.
•An interview and DBS check is required for all UK volunteers.
You will be met at Kisumu airport and taken to Abimbo village where you’ll be staying in a mudhut at Challenge Africa Community and Orphan Centre.
