Youth Organization For International Volunteers

Organization Description: 

Youths Organization for International Volunteers is a non governmental, non partisan and non profit making organization. Its goal is to offer services to the Kenyan community, through volunteering, that target and address the most serious issues affecting our community: HIV/AIDS, health care and nutrition, environmental conservation, child rights (including the rights of orphans, street children and other vulnerable children), gender based violence, sustainable agriculture, home based care, teaching and Proclaiming the word of God amongst others. ouths Organization is a true grassroots organization. We work on the ground across Kenya to alleviate human crisis - in slums, IDP (internally displaced persons) camps, churches, schools, orphanages, hospitals, rehabilitation centres and the homes of HIV/AIDS patients.

Youths Organization has been established with these key focuses in mind:

1 To work with Kenyan and international volunteers of all ages and from all walks of life (dont be misled by our name our volunteers are not just young people but people in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s!).

2 To reduce the dependency syndrome and help Kenyans become self-sufficient.

3 To give volunteers a rewarding volunteer experience (NOT a boring one), working on the ground, with people in need.

4 To proclaim the word of God.

5 To ensure that our community, government, private sector, public sector, churches, other volunteer organizations and all of our volunteers world wide can work together in a collaborative, positive and open environment with a view to improving living standards in Kenya.

Put simply, if you are considering volunteering in Africa, then Youths Organization can offer you a fully supported grassroots experience that enables you to volunteer (and help) those most in need in Kenya.
