Volunteers Foundation was created in 2011 with the aim of improving the living conditions of children in Kibera (Nairobi) through the provision of quality education.
We initially supported the construction and development of St. Monica Nursery, and then we created and maintained an educational network of independent schools with similar values and principles to cater for the needs of the children under our care.
In 2016, our major milestone so far: we launched our own Volunteers Foundation Academy, a primary school which allow us to deliver a quality education based on our ethos.
Volunteers Foundation is entirely based on volunteering work and all donations and help received go directly to the charity causes.
Have you ever heard of Kibera?
They say that Kibera is the second-largest slum on earth, the biggest in Africa and still continually growing in population. It is just one of five slums within the city of Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, and here is where Volunteeers Foundation operates. Kibera offers one of the rawest experiences you can ever imagine of what it means to be a human being. If you can picture just one small district of your own home-town crammed with hundreds thousand people trying to survive next to each other, then you are beginning to get an idea of what life can be like in Kibera, an illegal slum that should not even exist on the city maps of Nairobi.
