Volunteer, Work Study & Intern

Volunteering, studying and being an intern with Grassroots Economics is a rewarding experience that can change the lives of people in need. You will be building a bridge between cultures and sharing your hope, enthusiasm, skills and dreams. We believe that volunteers should get to know all the positive and inspiring things about Kenyan communities and the beautiful country they live in. Here is your chance to make a mark and a difference to our communities. We accept volunteers in all of our programs for a period of 3 months.
