Since 2004, when the first interns visited IPI in Kenya, we have hosted many interns and volunteers who have worked in the areas of HIV/AIDS, women’s empowerment, women’s health, children’s welfare, spiritual growth, the environment, peacebuilding, sustainable development, alternative energy, and organic farming/permaculture. IPI is committed to provide experiential intercultural exchanges for grassroots social change. Contact us to discuss the opportunities.

During your internship, you may take part in a tour of Kenya. The safari is based on our belief that a visit to Kenya is incomplete if the social, health, and economic challenges people face are not experienced by the visitor. We will travel to different villages in between the visits to the national parks and game drives to spot the “big 5”. In total, eight different cultural communities are visited, including the Masaai, the Samburu, Turkana, Boran, Kalenjin, Meru, Kikuyu and Luhyia. The length of the stay at the Amani Home and the days of safari can be customized to meet your interests and schedule.
