Below you'll find details on our International Volunteer Program.

Please be sure to read carefully about our fees, program inclusions and policies before applying.

Friends Vision International Volunteer Program is designed for volunteers who would like to have a fully integrated volunteer experience abroad. This program offers everything you need to have a successful first trip to Kenya. 

This program has a minimum of a two week stay, starting on either the 1st or 15th of every month. Please note that all volunteers must arrive one (1) day BEFORE the program begins. 

All of our program fees are per person and are in AU dollars.

  • 2 weeks - $700
  • 1 month - $1,300
  • 2 months - $2,200

We require that 50% of your total fees are paid immediately after application approval. The remaining 50% of your total fees must be paid 2 weeks before departure. 

You must notify us as soon as possible, and no later than 2 weeks before your departure, if you wish to cancel your volunteer program and receive a full refund. If you cancel within 2 weeks of your departure, you forfeit your initial deposit (50% of your total program fees).
