Get Involved – Volunteer!
HOPE worldwide Kenya (HWWK) recognizes and values the contribution made by volunteers since our registration in 1999, to the official launch of programs in 2003 and onwards. We are a member of the Volunteer Involving Organizations (VIO) network society and provide opportunities for volunteer engagement towards national development. Volunteers have added great value and have provided priceless input and contribution to HWWK programs and beneficiaries from inception. They have learned from us and we have learned from them. They are an integral part of what we do.
HWWK volunteers have served in various roles, including raising awareness, providing technical input and support, and provision of services to our clients in the community, and participating in our day to day operations. Over 140 committed volunteers contributed over 200,000 volunteer hours in 2013 alone.
Benefits of Being a Volunteer
In addition to the personal satisfaction from volunteering, there are many other benefits from volunteering;
Volunteer Training is provided to new volunteers depending on their role and location in Kenya. We ensure that they are equipped to provide services directly to the communities. This includes an orientation, basic HIV/AIDS information, boundaries workshop, working with vulnerable groups, and other sessions as required or requested. We recruit and place volunteers at different times every year.
Time Commitment: Volunteering at HOPE worldwide Kenya requires a minimum time commitment of 3 to 6 months for local volunteers and from 3 months to one year for international volunteers. There may be exceptions based on the skill set of the volunteer but there are no volunteer opportunities for less than one month. This is related to the time and resources needed for orientation, and the time needed to provide meaningful service.
