Project Description

One of a Kind Program!

Join us working hands and feet on the street alongside the women, babies and children who live on the streets on Kenya. Volunteering with our street children program will give you the opportunity to help one or more children who are living their lives daily on the street. These children do not have family, they live, eat and sleep on the streets and in parks. They can often be found begging in downtown the city centre where they can sometimes be harassed and arrested, by helping to feed them we can take some of that pressure of of them.


  • Be prepared to see the stark reality of how these children survive from day to day 
  • Be prepared to commit to volunteering for a minimum of 4 weeks
  • You will never be alone on this project but we do caution that you should also be prepared to be asked for money while downtown in the city of Nairobi
  • Be self motivated and goal orientated
  • Have an open mind and not judge these children, as they did not choose to live their lives on the street


Compassion is at the heart of this program and is key to the lives of street children & families in Kenya. Being able to help them see and build a brighter future is a one of a kind experience that will change lives.

Our Goal

The main goal for our Street Children Program is to help these children in a sustainable way. We want them to feel like they matter, that they are people too!  By being with them on the street and taking the time to ask questions and get to know them we are giving them hope, and there should always be hope for these children.  One of the biggest goals of Because ALL Children Matter is to build our own Rescue Centre for the street women, babies and children living the streets.  We have been able to rescue 5 women and their babies and 4 street boys to date, you can be a part of that!


  • Learn Swahili from the children
  • Safari in Kenya
  • Make a difference in the life of a child
  • Make memories that will last a lifetime
  • Form friendships that will last forever

The most valuable part of my experience was helping a young boy who lived on the streets of Nairobi called Ben. We were taking a group of homeless boys out for hot food.

  • This program varies from day to day and you could be working on the street or cooking meals for the street families
  • A volunteers work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:
  • 7:00 – 7:30am Breakfast at the volunteer house
  • 7:30 – 8:00am Meet with local Kenyan staff to plan out your day
  • A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.
  • 3:30pm Walk or bus back to the accommodation
  • Evenings Volunteers are free to explore the local area, check out the markets and shopping or just hangout.
