Volunteer Kenya, established in 1998, is a grassroot volunteer organization working hand-in-hand with the local people of Western Kenya. The organization is inclined in providing HIV/AIDS Education program to the rural community in order to help prevent the disease. Volunteer Kenya also aids in equipping the community with skills and knowledge to teach each other for a faster knowledge transfer.
Aside from HIV/AIDS Education, Volunteer Kenya also offers different programs such as healthcare, eduction, microenterprise, and women's health. The volunteer organization operates Bill Selke Memorial Clinic which is active during summer months (May-August). Mobile clinic services visit rural village centers, churches, and homes in the Western Province.
The Education program caters students from pre-school to grade 8. This is run by staff of local Kenyan teachers and overseas volunteers. The school provides lunch to the students and also offers supports through "Sponsor a Child's Education" program.
Volunteer Kenya assists women in rural areas through Microenterprise Development Program. This initiative started since 2001 and has been able to provide start-up capital in order to help women build their own income-generating projects.
