You will be staying at either Marianne Center or at a nearby host family. Marianne Center will, in agreement with you, arrange your stay. This will cost you approximately 250 dollars a month (depending on the exchange rate). This includes food, accommodation and airport pick up. Marianne Center will pick you from the airport and bring you to your host family. We also arrange your introduction about the do’s and dont’s of Kenya.
You can buy a visa for 50 dollars when you arrive at the airport in Nairobi.
There are lots of opportunities to enjoy Kenya besides your work. We can help you arrange fantastic safaris and trips to the coast and meet people from all over the world.
The experience of our previous volunteer Tom George:
We would really appreciate a donation from you. Make sure your name and address is clear on the transfer so we can update you about what has happened to your donation.

In the past years Marianne Center has proven to contribute a lot to the lives of people with a mental disability. We therefore see the need of continuing with our activities for many years to come. Currently our focus is on becoming financial independent. It is not realistic to continue fund raising year after year, hence financial sustainability is crucial for the continuation of Marianne Center. This requires investments to be able to set up income generating activities (like a poultry farm and greenhouses) and construct our own premises to eliminate the high renting costs. Our goal is to become financial independent by 2015.
In order to be able to achieve this goal we need all the help we can get. We are looking for someone who can donate some of his/her time to help us search for funds to help us become financial independent, so that the future of Marianne Center and her activities, and most importantly the future of our mentally disabled students, is secure!
We are always looking for volunteers. If in any way you think you can contribute to this humble project, please get in contact with us.
