The Most Affordable Volunteer Program in Kenya

The Abandoned Children’s Foundation (ACF) is a Not-For-Profit Organization (Nonprofit – NGO). One of the benefits when volunteering with a Not-For-Profit over a For-Profit Organization is cost. Most For-Profit organizations charge volunteers a lot of money via Registration Fees, Location Fees, Transportation Fees, and so on… For-Profits will even make you pay for their credit card processing fees, foreign transaction fees, and will not even offer you a refund in the event you are unable to travel.

This is not the case with the ACF. The ACF provides a flat rate – per week program fee with none of the previously mentioned “hidden fees”. With the ACF, your program fees support you on your volunteer trip and helps the children you get to know while volunteering. So do not pay a For-Profit to volunteer abroad. Instead, help us help children in Kenya!

You might ask, “How do my program fees help the children at the orphanage?”.
A portion of your program fees are given to the director of the orphanage. Some of the money is used to purchase groceries for you and the rest is used to provide for the children at the orphanage and help the orphanage keep its door open. Allowing your program fees to do the most good.
