Covid-19 & Volunteering

CIVS Kenya volunteering programs are now open for all interested participants from countries with less or no travel restrictions as per the safety consideration and directives of the government and the Ministry of Health. Visit our STV and MLTV page for more information about our programs.

As the world is adjusting to adapt to the new ‘normal' we are hopeful and confident that the situation will improve soon to accommodate the normal volunteering experience before the pandemic, with the current introduction of vaccines. Kenya is now fully open to International arrivals and departures with all safety measures and precautions put in place.

Volunteer Health and Safety

CIVS is relentlessly focused on the well-being of its volunteers and as we work together to impact lives in our communities. Volunteer safety is always paramount and guaranteed. We have a comprehensive approach to managing health and safety procedures and reducing risks across all our projects to give our volunteers the knowledge and confidence they need to stay safe, secure and healthy. Kindly take time to visit our previous blog post on Standard Best Practices to Observe Hygiene.
We have introduced a number of Health and safety measures that have been implemented by all our local projects to minimize the risk of volunteers introducing a new infection to the local community, and minimize the risk of cross-infection between volunteers and the local community.

  • We recommend our volunteers to have trusted international travel and health insurance cover.
  • We recommend a compulsory COVID-19 test for our volunteers within 72 hours of travel.
  • Upon arrival, we have a scheduled orientation where all basic health, safety information, and emergency response procedure is provided.
  • We ensure our projects are up to standards to enforce Covid-19 safety measures.
  • We ensure the volunteer has limited contacts with locals at the project and accommodation centers.

Amidst COVID-19 we have so far hosted 50+ volunteers with over 10 successful project placements and guaranteed splendid 'new normal' volunteering experience feedback.
For any assistance in planning for your travel to volunteer with us. Contact us today for more information.
