East Africa Program Visits

Fresh from a visit to our programs in East Africa, IVHQ Executive Director, Daniel Radcliffe shares his report from Kenya:

"The IVHQ Kenya program is our largest program and during busy periods, can host well over 100 volunteers at any one time. As such, the program has placements throughout Kenya to ensure there is ample work available for all volunteers. A number of areas were discussed in the few days we were there and it was nice to see some new faces in the offices, including former IVHQ volunteer, Avital Moss, who has been working with the local team as a temporary staff member.

As a result of our meetings with the Kenya team (and the great work Avital had been doing), the position of a full time "mzungu intern" (foreign intern) has been created to work within the local offices of the IVHQ team in Nairobi. The position will be advertised later this year and the IVHQ Kenya Intern will work within the local offices of the IVHQ Kenya team for a minimum period of 6 months, helping with day to day work and developing new processes to ensure the IVHQ Kenya program is the best volunteer program in Kenya. The intern will be provided with meals and accommodation at the IVHQ volunteer house in Nairobi as well as given a small stipend to cover basic living allowances. Watch this space if you are interested!

Over all, our visit to the IVHQ Kenya program went very well and we are very excited about what the future has in store for both programs and the work that can be done. East Africa has some of the most hospitable and friendly people in the world and it is always a privilege to visit here and see the fantastic work our volunteers are doing. We look forward to visiting the programs again soon. Keep up the great work, IVHQ staff and volunteers!"
