Program History:

We are glad that you are interested in learning more about Volunteer Kenya / ICODEI and our work in the Western Province of Kenya. We have discovered that if we invest a sufficient amount of time and energy and work hand-in-hand with the local people of Western Kenya, we can facilitate improvements in health, education and the local economy.

We are a grassroots volunteer organization that has been active since 1998. One unique feature of our organization is that we operate through a partnership between overseas volunteers and a staff of local Kenyans. All of our international coordination, fundraising, and marketing is done through a staff of unpaid volunteers from outside of Kenya. Our on-the-ground operations are all run by local Kenyans who are trained in development, education, HIV/AIDS counseling and home-based care.
