Volunteer Programs Abroad

Each country where we work offers a unique set of challenges and learning experiences. In Kenya, we work in the lush and densely populated rural and peri-urban areas around Kenya’s third largest city, Kisumu. In Peru, our volunteer teams work in Huanchaco, a coastal township on the outskirts of Trujillo, Peru’s second largest city. For a decidedly rural volunteer experience, we work in partnership with the Olive Branch for Children in Tanzania’s beautiful Mbeya Region.

Volunteer Voices

Working as a Research Associate for SID gave me the opportunity to pursue my interests in global health, while exploring knowledge and attitudes about maternal health in rural Kenya. The program not only helped me to develop research skills, but also gave me an appreciation for applying them in a developing country context.
