Volunteer In Kenya
Teaching Volunteer In Kenya
The schools in Kenya focuse on education, sport, and counseling, but as a volunteer, you could be involved in these or a range of tasks depending on the requirements of the children at the time. You may help the staff in teaching, play with the children or help at mealtimes.
You do not have to be a trained teacher to help. Many skills could be of benefit to the running of the schools.

Regina, from Germany, 2 times volunteer at DGV
“Hello, my name is Regina Schack and I’m 23 years old. My first time in Kenya was in 2010. I lived with Jacob and his family and with some other volunteers. We had a lot of fun together, enjoyed ourselves and got to know a lot about Mombasa and Kenya. I went to the DGS School every day. On some days I had a class on my own and I taught them maths, English or I played or sang with them. On the others days I supported a teacher with correcting exams or exercises. It was great to see how they work and teach in Kenya. Also to be together with the children was so amazing. Even though they are very poor, they laugh, sing and dance. They seem to be happy and this was the fact that really impressed me. They also appreciate everything you do with them.
I really fell in love with the country. That’s why I came back this year (2012) with my boyfriend Bernd. We did fundraising at home and so we were able to sponsor a kitchen for the school. It was a very important fact because the old kitchen was very smoky and there were already health problems because of the kitchen, which the Kenyan Health Authorities had pointed out.
I was so happy because the children didn’t forget me, they still know my name. With the donation we also bought mangos, biscuits and orange juice for the kids. It was one of the great moments in life by giving them the food. They laughed and were just happy.
Next year, we will come back again; Kenya and the children touched our lives!”
Faaris Ali, UKMedical expert
Faaris from the UK worked at both a Medical Centre and at Destiny Garden School from 10 July to 16 August 2010.
He says – “My 5 weeks of volunteering at Destiny Gardens School was undoubtedly the most amazing experience of my entire life.”
“The children are full of life and love your company. I was fortunate enough to play football and other games with them on a daily basis. I also offered to teach a few lessons, where i was amazed to witness how hard working and committed the children are, especially at such a young age.”
“The staff at the school are fantastic. They’re all fully committed to giving their all for the sake of the children and always make you feel right at home, come rain or shine.”
“Destiny Gardens School is most definitely going places fast. In the short time i was there, a brand new library and clinic were built. Now the kids are able to broaden their horizons, through the books that have been donated and more importantly, they can stay healthy through proper medical treatment, allowing them to excel in their studies.”
“Aside from Volunteering, there’s plenty to do in Mombasa. Whether its spending time on beautiful beaches, or a historic trip to old town, one thing’s for sure – you’ll never have a boring day! Overall, my experience in Kenya is one I will never forget. I loved every single minute of it and can’t wait to go back and do it all over again! “
Alexander Tacke-Koester – GermanyStudent
Alex from Germany is reading African Studies at University and, during his summer 2009 holidays, is doing voluntary work at Destiny Garden School to learn more about the African culture and to practice his Swahili.
Alex says – “I was lucky to find Destiny Garden School which answered my needs, namely being a small organisation with a vision and with the will to do something and with their focus on children in a very poor region of Mombasa.
Due to staff shortages, on my third day I had to take a class and unfortunately was rather unprepared but in the end the children made it very easy for me because they appreciated everything one does so much. It has been a really truly great experience for me.”
Alana and her friends Vanessa and MeredithUser Designation
We had a fantastic time getting to volunteer and learn more about the school and were warmly received by the directors and everyone at the school. I was impressed with all Jacob(school director) has put into the creation of Destiny Garden School and how huge a difference this is making for so many children. I was so touched by the love, care, authenticity, intention, and creation of this school benefiting so many children in an impoverished area, and how talented each teacher is in what they have to offer their students. Words are not enough to describe how grateful I am for my time with Destiny Garden School, the impact the experience has had on me, and my desire to stay connected with DGS”
