And you can always contact Kenya Xperience! if you have questions that are not answered in the KX! volunteer handbook.

Become a JoHo member

We also advise you to become a JoHo member. This gives you some great advantages. Look at or visit the JoHo support centers in Den Haag, Leiden, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Groningen to see how you can become a member. JoHo can provide you with information that can help you to make the right choice in your volunteering experience. Your membership will give you discount on vaccinations, travel books and travel gear in JoHo centers and a €10,- discount on the KX! registration fee for participants in the KX! volunteer introduction programme.

Jethro Arts Everything was great and arranged perfectly and professionally. The contact by mail before we travelled to Kenya was clear and easy. The pick up from the airport was without any problems. The introduction day in Kilifi was great as well. Still thanks to Everlyn and the student who has learned us (a couple of words) Swahili. Special thanks to Cocky for her commitment and everything she has done for us. We like to do voluntary work with Kenya Xperience! again.
Jurriaan Wesselink Ik (heb) veel gezien, gedaan en, onbewust, veel geleerd. Het was echt top en ik weet niet hoe ik kan zeggen hoe ik de organisatie kan bedanken, zonder deze  organisatie was het niet zo gelukt! Echt top. Dit nemen ze me nooit meer af.
Elize van Dalsen My experience with Kenya Xperience! could not have been better.
