We encourage local and international volunteers to come and do volunteer work in our organization. Local interns who would want to sharpen their skills in social work and community development, Medicine and other courses are welcome.
For international volunteers, Within the Mogra Rescue Centre there is a two bedroom volunteer flat with a fully equipped kitchen and a living room. The flat is very convenient for volunteers due to its location within the rescue Centre, and the location of the rescue Centre itself.
Mogra Rescue Centre is located about 5 Kilometres from Nairobi city Centre therefore we are located close to several shopping malls, eateries and tourist attractions that the Nairobi has to offer. Travel to and from the city is as simple as catching one of many buses that go past the orphanage straight into the city, or taking a private taxi if you wish. Travelling to the rescue Centre to the school in the Mathare slum is also easy.
It’s hard to imagine a volunteer experience more fulfilling than working at the Mogra Project.
The basics are taken care of for the children, like their meals, a place to stay and schooling. But, with limited local staff available, there is only so much love and caring available for the children. That’s why the children so eagerly await the arrival of volunteers, who can give the kids more attention and love.
The Mogra Project is unique in that not only are we just an orphanage, we are also a school and a growing farm so there is a lot of variety here to keep you busy and entertained during your stay with us.
