Youths Organization for International Volunteers is a non-governmental, nonpartisan and nonprofit 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 (Nursing & Community Health) 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 training amongst others. Youths 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 centers and the homes of HIV/AIDS patients.

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

  • To work with Kenyan and international volunteers of all ages and from all walks of life (don't be misled by our name of our volunteers are not just young people but people in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s!).
  • To reduce the dependency syndrome and help Kenyans become self-sufficient.
  • To give volunteers a rewarding volunteer experience (NOT a boring one), working on the ground, with people in need.
  • To provide financial support to the program that volunteers work with while in Kenya.
  • To ensure that our community, government, private sector, public sector, churches, other volunteer organizations and all of our volunteers worldwide 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.
