Why should you consider volunteering in Kenya?

There are countless reasons why thousands of people volunteer each year. You may start with a desire to travel to Kenya, learn a new way of life for particular local community, carry out a research or meet new people.

By volunteering, you’ll also have the opportunity to lend a hand to those who are working to improve life in their communities. Through your daily work and interactions with members of a local community, you’ll gain a better understanding of the culture, as well as the issues that affect that part of the community. You’ll also learn a lot about yourself, as you take on the challenge of living and working in a completely new environment.

Benefits To Volunteering

Connecting you with others

One of the better-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Unpaid volunteers are often the glue that holds a community together.

Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. However, volunteering is a two-way street, and it can benefit you as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.

Make new friends and contacts

One of the best ways to make new friends and strengthen existing relationships is to commit to a shared activity together. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, especially if you are new to an area.

Volunteering also strengthens your ties to the community and broadens your support network, exposing you to people with common interests, neighbourhood resources, and fun and fulfilling activities.

Team building and bonding

While it might be a challenge to coordinate everyone’s schedules, volunteering as a team has many worthwhile benefits. By giving back to the community together, you make a connection through a shared experience which is ultimately making a difference.

You will understand how good it feels to help others and enact change. It’s also a valuable way for you to get to know organizations in the community and find resources and activities that you may continue outside of work hours.

Enhance your social and relationship skills

While some people are naturally outgoing, others are shy and have a hard time meeting new people.

Volunteering gives you the opportunity to practice and develop your social skills, since you are meeting regularly with a group of people with common interests. Once you have momentum, it’s easier to branch out and make more friends and contacts.
