Volunteer to give orphaned children healthy, secure and constructive childhoods.

Kenya is mired in poverty and HIV/AIDS and thousands of children become orphans and homeless as a result of this. There is very little government help for the orphaned children. They have to fend for themselves and many turn to life of crime or they’re exploited as they seek work to survive. There are many orphanages running through private efforts or some through government programs that are taking good care of the children. These orphanages house, feed, send the children to school and clothe them. Despite this good work, these orphanages are always struggling for funds and are understaffed. RCDP is working with these local orphanages to offer volunteers a wonderful chance to help the children.

Join RCDP’s orphanage project in Kenya and work to better the lives and the future of orphaned children. You will provide love, care, impart skills and turn the children into confident individuals capable of believing in themselves. In return, you will receive warm appreciation, an experience that will enrich your life and memories that will stay with your forever.
