KENYA: Work at Flying Kites Leadership Academy

“At Flying Kites, we believe in children. And so, in the Aberdares Mountains of Kenya, we have built a Home and Leadership Academy for orphaned children who would otherwise have nowhere to turn.  Through our emphasis on exemplary care, education, and compassion, children who have suffered the devastating effects of poverty are being empowered to change our world.”  Flying Kites’ Ambassadors program enables volunteers to spend three-month, six-month or nine-months in-field experience at the Leadership Academy in Kenya, where they take on full-time work in the areas of education, health, community outreach, impact evaluation, media & communications, and event planning. Acceptance into this program is competitive and interested volunteers should email Ambassadors must cover own travel expenses to Kenya. Cost to volunteer is $2,000 per month, plus fundraising cost.
