Volunteer with us!

With only 2 of us part-time in the UK we rely on our small team of committed, dedicated volunteers. Some have been volunteering with us for over 15 years!

 

We have volunteers supporting us with admin, social media, copywriting and research. If you have time to spare and have skills or experience in any of these areas then we’d love to hear from you! Please send an email to Kirsty and Vic at hello@raisingfutureskenya.org.uk giving us a summary of your background and what you’d like to get involved with and we’ll get back to you.

 

Due to insurance limitations sadly we can only have volunteers who are over 18. We do ask our volunteers to commit to 6 months with us, just because it takes us a long time to set everything up and train new volunteers. Our desk space in Sheffield is closed at the moment so all volunteer placements will be remote for the foreseeable future.

 

Please note that we don’t host overseas volunteering. Whilst we appreciate the benefits it can bring, our team in Kenya have built longterm supportive relationships with other education providers and NGOs in Kenya where they all share best practice information and tips with each other. Our team are from the communities where we work so they know what will work best in their areas and we’re committed to up-skilling our team in Kenya.

One day I hope to see the wonderful work of Raising Futures Kenya for myself but, for now, almost 15 years after my first interaction with this charity, I am delighted to be involved in managing the Raising Futures Kenya Facebook page! I really enjoy sharing the latest news and updates with our loyal followers.
