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.
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).
What's NOT Included
We have found that a weekly personal budget of $100 AU is standard, but of course this does vary from individual to individual.
The volunteers of this program must read and agree to our terms and conditions before applying.
Friends Vision strives to always be as upfront as possible about how your fees are distributed. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

|March 2018 Update|
|It continues to be an interesting, challenging, rewarding and evolving journey for us as we move into our eighth year. While it’s been around two years since my last update (so sorry), the wheels have still been turning over as we venture into new territory this year. Our focus on sustainability is in full force with some exciting new partnerships; we have gained tax deductibility status in Australia; welcomed new staff members and new children and had the first of our young adults finishing High School and beginning our transition program.|
