  • Kenya is a fantastic place to spend time volunteering abroad with children in orphanages and day care centers, teaching in local schools, assist the doctors and nurses in the health clinics and hospitals, work in an HIV/AIDS program and participate in youth activities. There is an increase in the number of orphans which are left in the community with no family members to care for them. In the orphanages that do exist, staff struggle with limited resources to feed, cloth, and educate the children in their care. Staff all too often simply doesn’t have the time to provide the individual love and attention that these children need so they can have as normal a childhood as possible. Women and children continue to suffer due to lack of proper medical care and shortage of doctors, nurses and social workers in the hospitals in both urban and rural areas, Due to poverty that has rocked the nation, people often avoid attending health facilities due to financial constrain, most of the people encounter premature death as a result of depression and inability to take care of them and the overwhelming number of children or students in a single class has called for a great need of volunteers who can speak and write English to assist these communities. Additionally the volunteer gains experience within the culture and work environment.

    We would like to call upon volunteers who are willing to participate in the above programs depending on their interest, capability, experience, professionalism and or just have the passion to help the needy. KVCDP works directly in the communities and with the community members who are in dire need to bring a change and make a difference in their situation.
    Program Schedules, Requirements and Provisions
    Volunteers can participate in most of the programs any time of year and can also choose their start dates and end dates of participation. Volunteers work alongside local professionals. People without special skills, professional qualifications or previous experience also volunteer in some of our programs in Kenya. People with the initiative, drive and compassion to help the under-privileged in overcoming their challenges and their struggle for dignity and experience foreign cultures are welcome to participate in the programs. Volunteers should have strong work ethic, ability to work independently or as part of a team, and willingness to follow direction; and good interpersonal skills, flexibility, and a sense of humor. Volunteers should be able to speak English. We accommodate both individual and group volunteers.
    The number of daily working hours and weekly working days of the volunteers is flexible. Volunteers will work in the mornings and/or afternoons, a maximum of 5 days a week, 4 hours to 8 hours a day. Participants of our programs can stay for a period of 2 up to 12 weeks but any volunteer who would like to shorten or extend their stay should inform the coordinator in advance. Participants stay with host families (home-stay) or other. The host families are carefully selected, well screened, respectable, caring and friendly people with many years of good reputation. Three meals daily and tea or coffee every evening. Room accommodation with lock and bed are provided to the volunteers throughout their visit/stay.
    A large group of volunteers with a number of 50 or more people who want to stay together at one house can be accommodated at high school dormitories, church facility and other. Volunteers should be 18 to 70 years of age. Children below the age of 18 who wish to volunteer in our program should have permission from their parents. Children below the age of 16 must be accompanied by one or both of their parents to our program. Applications should be received at least two weeks in advance to organize a volunteer work placement and accommodation for the volunteers. Volunteers who wish to combine their volunteering experience with Safaris can do so and this can be organized during your placement.

  • “Once in a lifetime trip”


    As you all might know by now, FGASA (Field Guides Association of Southern Africa) have changed their required number of days allocated to a level one qualification to 60 days from next year. The EcoTraining 28 day FGASA qualification will be your last chance to do a 28 day course with the FGASA exam. We decided to make this a “once in a lifetime” opportunity.

     Participants will be trained in 3 different reserves as part of the 28 day program; the training will include reserves in South Africa and Mashatu Game reserve in Botswana. The staring date for this specialist 28 day FGASA course is November the 25th 2011. (Remember you don’t have to do this as a career, you can also do it as part of the adventure of a lifetime)

    We started in 1993 with a mission to raise the standard of guiding in Africa.
    EcoTraining is the oldest field guide training company in Africa. We were one of the first companies to conduct formal training programmes for nature guides. We are known in the industry as the pioneers and leaders in
    field guide and nature training.

    For more than a decade, we have been sending people of all ages into the African wilderness to learn about the environment in exciting, in-depth and sensitive ways and to find out what it really takes to become a game ranger or a field guide

    Don’t miss the last opportunity to get both your EcoTraining as well as your FGASA qualification while exploring reserves in South Africa and Botswana. For more information contact enquiries@ecotraining.co.za or phone +27 (0) 13 752 5248. Space is limited on this course, visit www.ecotraining.co.za for more information on the 28 day course.
