The greatest cause of abandoned children on the streets in East Africa is poverty. As the HIV and AIDS pandemic takes its toll many kids have been left without parents to take care of them. Such neglected kids have often been taken by other families or by charitable persons and groups and put up in orphanages. Orphanage operators are often in great need of labor support to supplement their efforts.
Participants (Interns) at orphanages assist in preparing meals for the kids, washing clothes, doing the dishes and doing the many chores that running such a place entails. In the evening, once the kids are back from school, participants could play with them plus assist them with their homework
Wildlife Internship in Kenya
The International Volunteer Travel offers you the opportunity to volunteer, study, or intern with wildlife research in the buffer zones of Kenya’s National parks. International volunteers, interns and independent study abroad students attached to this program can choose to work mainly with elephants or lions, or both animal species. This program is open to people aged 18-55, who love to work with wild animals, and real jungle experience in Africa.
Research results of these projects will identify causes and trends of human/animal conflict in the area, document animal behavior and come up with suggestions on how better management and protection approaches. To read more about this project, click here.

Project participants work in the community and neighboring schools, teaching students (at school) and community members (at their homes) about HIV/AIDS. Lessons taught are related to basic information about the disease, preventive measures, and how to take care of people living with AIDS. Participants should come prepared to learn and train others plus participate in community and school education.
