Our values

Promoting peace, diversity and intercultural exchange

We promote these values in common with the International Voluntary Service network, and we consider that there is no development without peace and no peace without development.

Empowering the youth through impactful projects

At KVSO, we encourage every single initiative that can contribute to a global change. Our volunteers acquire new skills and knowledge through a fulfilling experience that will influence their own empowerment.

Implementing development projects with the local community

We believe in the responsability of the local community in its own developement and the projects implemented are always linked to the needs of the people on site.

When volunteers talk about us

‘This mid-term project was a challenge for me as I didn’t know so much about this country but the people here welcomed me like if I was part of the family. Volunteer is an empowering experience and being here in Kenya was, for me, the best country to do it. People are welcoming, kind and generous and they will give you the opportunity to leave an unforgettable moment.’

Alice (France)

‘This workcamp was my first experience as a volunteer and it was so successfull that I’m thinking to volunteer again soon. Despite the cultural differences that you have to face at the beginning, these few weeks in Kenya were an experience that I will never forget. I encourage all of my friends to participate in such fulfilling and exciting project, and I would like to thank you KVSO for their wonderful work.’

Ludwig (Germany)

‘This experience was one of the best of my life. I’ve learned many things and discovered the amazing culture of Kenya. During my long-term project (10months), I participated in many activities and had the chance to help for the implementation of new projects. I will never forget my experience in Kenya and I’m already planning to come back to Kenya to engage myself in new programs.’

Roberta (Italy)

Pendant deux mois je me suis adaptée à leur mode et rythme de vie sur les terres sauvages du Massaï Mara. Malgré leurs faibles ressources matérielles, les…
