The program is working in Kenya's Western and Nyanza regions of Kakamega, Kisumu and Siaya and will gradually expand into other regions of the country as assessments are conducted and resources made available. With gaps in education and health that require human resources and technical capacity, Peace Corps helps Kenya achieve its need for trained men and women, while promoting culture and friendship between the people of the United States and Kenya.
Educational institutions, community-based organizations, health facilities and other non-governmental organizations can receive services by applying to host a volunteer in their community.
Peace Corps Kenya has been in operation for almost 60 years and changes the lives of many Kenyans through education, health, small business, agriculture, water and sanitation programs. Peace Corps Kenya’s footprint will continue to grow and volunteer placements will increase progressively to serve communities that request our help. In addition to training our Volunteers, we offer trainings for local counterparts to support our work in rural Kenya.
