Important Trip Info

Learn more about the Kenya trip experience:

Kenya is a beautifully diverse and powerful country in E. Africa where Convoy of Hope is privileged to serve alongside local leaders to help school children with nutrition, single mothers through empowerment programs, and others through various initiatives.

There are numerous opportunities for Field Teams to come alongside these leaders to help increase capacity. Through projects such as building kitchens, latrines, chicken coops, greenhouses, rabbit or goat pens, water catchment systems or other helps, teams can make huge contributions to sustainability strategies in the communities with whom we work.

Often, teams build working models that can help train people across the region long after the team returns home.

The Kenyan people are extremely friendly. Teams will interact with children and their leaders throughout time on the field. Kenya also includes some of the best wild animal viewing opportunities anywhere in the world. If desired, teams can go on a safari as part of their engagement in the country.

Teams work on projects such as building kitchens, latrines, chicken coops, greenhouses, rabbit or goat pens, water catchment systems or other helps, making huge contributions to sustainability strategies in the communities with whom we work. This happens with good opportunities to interact with children.

Are Field Teams open to individuals as well as groups?

Currently, we are not able to accommodate individuals who are not connected with a team.

Field Teams are open to those who are 16-years-old and older for international travel (certain trips require 18+) and 13-years-old and older for U.S.-based trips.

Field Teams help Convoy of Hope accomplish our goals around the world. Because of this, different teams may serve through different projects and opportunities. Currently, most of our teams will help with construction projects that serve our Children’s Feeding Initiative.
