VFA's Contribution to Development in communities has come a long way.....................

From building of community bridges in Meru to tree planting in Mt Kenya, from excavating of water pans in Eburru to a community ecotourism in Lembus; VFA has been able to make a change in the lives of needy rural people in Eastern Africa.

All you need is just to participate in making the change happen. VFA recruits volunteers aged at least 20 years, able to speak either English or Kiswahili, are professionals or recent school leavers. So long as you want to participate in development tourism, we will give you a chance. Placements range from teachers to accountants, health and social workers, enterprise developers, computer experts, doctors and nurses...................
