Interns(s) will be involved in the project activities. However, most volunteers change to intern will not be required to have specific skills. Interns(s) will work hand in hand with professional in their respective fields. PIVS Kenya Internship programs are not a leisure holiday or adventure therefore we require Interns(s) who are committed, motivated and willing to learn.

Kenyan Experience

PIVS Kenya Internship  strongly emphasizes on the aspect Voluntary and Culture, we are welcoming open minded interns who want to learn about African-Kenyan culture appreciate and respect different diverse cultures. 

The interns will have an opportunity to meet and find out about the local people and experience their simple living conditions and culture. Interns will be taken to festivals, markets and local activities where possible.


The interns will be housed with the host family several kilometers and or within the next to the program site. The accommodation is secure and each intern will have own room and bed.


During their free time on Saturday and Sunday, interns will go for excursions to local places of interest (this will usually depend with the area) such as National parks, cultural centers, monuments e.t.c. Transport cost for excursions, free time activities and other private traveling, accommodation cost out of arranged program site, should be interns responsibility.

Living Conditions

There will be challenges at times especially the first 3-4 days because of new surroundings, the people, food, climate and work. Interns should be aware that conditions will be basic. Interns will do most of the work like washing your clothes, food preparation, general cleaning etc.


Travel health insurance is a must in order for you to attend PIVS work camps. The insurance should cover emergency repatriation and include an international emergency help line. We also advice volunteers to carry a first Aid kit for dealing with minor cuts and ailments.


English should be the medium of communication unless an intern is completely unable to communicate in English.
