Nothing can be done without your financial support. Likewise, nothing can be done without volunteers to help raise funding. volunteers to go and work with the children, to help build, to teach and to show these children they matter.
It takes everyone helping to ensure impoverished children/orphans are provided with basic needs/rights- food,shelter,clothes and education. We understand how busy lives are and the demands for time between work, school and families. We also know many people want to go and serve but may not understand how to serve, where to serve or the cost. We hope to make this an easy decision for you when considering serving with EPCL.
Volunteering in Kenya:
AIRFARE COST: We do our best to keep costsAirfare is the biggest cost you will have. You may find your own or we can help you find the best option. Plan on $1500-$2000 round trip depending on the time of year. June-October is animal migration and the highest tourist season- best for safari but the highest airfare unless booked far in advance.
HOUSING/FOOD COST- Staying with us in our house is the least expensive. $20 a day room/meals/snacks etc. Sharing our house with us is very flexible and low key. You may choose to stay at The Royal City Hotel within walking distance to our house. The hotel website is www.royalcityhotel.co.ke . Their rates are online and are usually between $30-$50 including breakfast. You are on your own for dinner or can choose the full board option. Of course you are always welcome to join us.
TRANSPORTATION: $30 round trip from the airport to where you are staying. The cost of transport each day to the school depends on the number of people in the group and cannot be accurately given until the group number is known.
INSURANCE: We do not require insurance but we strongly recommend it. Insurance covers lost bags, emergencies, illness on your trip, and other important items you may not think about. Usually $3 a day. We have a couple of companies we use and the information is in the info packet.
SAFARI: The cost varies according to the time of the year, the park you want to visit, the number of days you want to be on safari and the type of accommodations you want. Safari is something everyone should experience.
