Are you an English speaking teacher? Would you like to share your passion for teaching with children and teens in underprivileged Kenyan communities? Would you like to deliver workshops for teens, adults and children focused on gender equality, mental health, and other issues relevant to the community? Would you like to be part of a team of passionate and dedicated international teachers and volunteers?

If the answer is “yes” – then it’s time to join us for our first Nasio Trust Teacher’s Study Trip.

This is a special one off experience departing July 19th 2025.

This Nasio teacher’s volunteer trip will give you an opportunity to engage with staff and children in a school serving a beautiful rural area in western Kenya. Although many people here live on less than $1 a day, most of the children are happy, friendly, and keen to learn.

The trip will be a great opportunity to be involved with a complete range of teaching and development activities, while immersing yourself in a different culture.

You can help by:

  • Taking classes
  • Assisting the local teaching staff
  • Conducting extracurricular activities like painting, drawing, singing, art, drama, dancing and sport
  • Or you can teach a different activity or skill that is of interest to you.

Participating in our teaching volunteer project will not only help others, but it will also provide a life-changing experience for you that will live on long after your trip ends. Further to that it will offer valuable work experience in a developing country which looks fantastic on your CV.
