Receiving volunteers from all over the world is a priceless opportunity for our children and the benefits are even higher with a diversity of backgrounds and skills. Once you become part of us you are considered a family and any idea on how we can improve and maximize what we have is highly welcome, we do believe that it takes more than action to change society because all that matters is the heart posture. Once your heart is connected to what you want to accomplish, nothing can hinder or stop you. You can volunteer at our nursery, primary and high school to help teach core subjects, such as English, mathematics, science, music, art, and social sciences, support the children that need extra care, as well as design workshops, extra-curricular and holiday activities about health, social justice, woman empowerment, responsible sexual behavior, environmental conservation, agriculture, etc. There is a lot to do and it’s a lot of fun!
Our vision is simple; all our activities are geared towards Developing A Healthy And Working Community
We develop a healthy and working community: through Education, Sports, Arts,Shelter, Feeding program and Job creation

Receiving volunteers from all over the world is a priceless opportunity for our children and the benefits are even higher with a diversity of backgrounds and skills.
My time spent at Rainedge International Centre has got to be one of my most treasured moments to date! The children were beautiful inside and out and their stories moved and inspired me. I had to the opportunity to serve at the orphanage in various capacities but I really enjoyed singing with the children’s choir most of all. They are truly a talented bunch of children and very loving. Even though we were there to help, I really feel that my time at the orphanage helped me to become a more grounded and content person.
Volunteering at Sure24 is like spending time with extended family. From the moment you step in the compound, you will be greeted by many friendly faces. You will experience all aspects of the projects and get to see how life in Nakuru really is for yourself. I have spent a number of visits with this incredible organization and I can’t wait for the next trip!
