The Makuyu Education Initiative (MEI) can always use volunteers on site in Kenya. Donating your time can go a long way to supporting our mission. If you decide to volunteer, you will have a lot of flexibility in deciding how to help make improvements. Volunteers in the past have helped teach classes, helped with tasks around the compound such as cleaning and cooking, documented the lives of the children, took pictures and videos for fundraising initiatives, and completed a variety of other tasks!


Unfortunately, due to financial constraints, MEI cannot subsidize your trip. However, aside from the cost of airfare, your expenses are likely to be very low. As of now, the cost to stay with us is $0 per week, which includes a room and meals. The only cost we ask you to cover is the pick-up from the airport, since we have to hire a driver (~$30-$45 depending on exchange rate).


If you are interested in volunteering, fill out our volunteering form and we'll email you more information (if form doesn't work, please email We hope you will consider MEI as an opportunity to share your skills and talents and join us in our mission to help improve the lives of the underprivileged children of the Makuyu Education Initiative!
