Trip Contract

Kenya May 2024 Deposit Form

Congratulations! You have been accepted to participate in Time to Help UK's volunteer abroad program in Kenya (May 2024). We are thrilled to have you join our team of dedicated volunteers who share our passion for positively impacting the world.

You will be responsible for fundraising a minimum of £1500 (and hopefully more) to support our projects in Kenya, such as distributing sanitary pads, renovating orphanages, distributing food packages, and building water wells.

By signing this contract, you agree to uphold the values of Time to Help UK, which include respect, kindness, and confidence!

Please note that you will be required to fund your own flights and visa fees/vaccinations. However, we will provide accommodation, in-country transport, and leisure activities at a cost. The accommodation and in-country transport cost will be £390, which you must pay upfront. The fee for leisure activities will be paid once you are in Kenya. Please be aware that any snacks or extra items you wish to purchase in supermarkets etc. are not covered by Time to Help UK.

Each volunteer will share a twin or triple room with a same-sex volunteer in a guest house. The payment for accommodation and in-country transport is non-refundable after January 31st, 2024. If you decide to pull out of the trip after this date, Time to Help UK will use the £390 for charitable purposes to compensate for the potential fundraising you would have done.

Once you have booked your flights and made the upfront payment, Jasmine, our trip coordinator, will send you a checklist of the things you may need, including comfortable clothing, vaccines, anti-malaria tablets, and other essential travel items. Please note that we require each volunteer to depart on the same flight from London Heathrow Airport to Nairobi Airpot on 17th May 2024 & return on the same flight from Nairobi to London Heathrow Airport on 25th May 2024, to ensure we are all united, safe, and make it easier for airport pickup upon arrival. Please speak to Jasmine regarding the flight before booking it.

Please sign below to confirm that you agree to the terms outlined in this contract.

FAQs

This trip is a unique opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of those in need, while also experiencing the beauty and culture of Kenya. You will gain a sense of fulfillment from the impact you will make, as well as valuable personal and professional development through working with a team, problem-solving, and adapting to new environments.

The duration of the trip is flexible, but we recommend a minimum stay of 7-10 days to allow enough time for volunteering and sightseeing. However, volunteers are welcome to extend their stay if they wish.

There is no age limit for this trip, but volunteers must be at least 18 years old. However, younger volunteers may be considered on a case-by-case basis if accompanied by a responsible adult.

Our volunteers will work on various projects on the ground, including providing clean water and sanitation, renovating an orphanage, and distributing food parcels to those in need. The specific projects will depend on the needs of the local community and the skills and interests of our volunteers.

The charity trip will consist of roughly five days of volunteering on various projects, such as providing clean water and sanitation, renovating an orphanage, and distributing food parcels. There will also be a minimum of 2 days dedicated to sightseeing, such as a safari and diving. These activities are optional and not the trip’s main focus, but they allow volunteers to experience Kenya’s local culture and natural beauty.

It is recommended that volunteers receive certain vaccinations before travelling to Kenya. These may include vaccinations for hepatitis A and B, typhoid fever, yellow fever, and rabies. (Most GPs in the UK only suggest getting Hep-A, Typhoid and Yellow Fever vaccines. Some GPs do it for free, whereas in some cases, you have to pay for them). It is important to consult with a healthcare professional at least 4-6 weeks before the trip to determine necessary vaccinations and to receive any required booster shots. Volunteers should also make sure that their routine vaccinations, such as measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, varicella (chickenpox), and polio, are up to date. You can check this website for more details. 

All travellers to Kenya 12 years of age and over will be, at all ports of entry, required to show proof of either COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test conducted no more than 72 hours before departure.

Travellers with no proof of vaccination or a PCR test, or with flu-like symptoms, will be required to undergo a rapid antigen test at their own cost of 30 USD. Those who test positive on antigen RDT will be required to take a PCR test at their own cost of $50 and self-isolate as per Ministry of Health guidance on isolation.
