Normally the duration of charity workers is from 1 month ..and very expensive Plus you need a work permit !!

seeing as you are only wanting two weeks I suggest you find a home near your place of stay and ask the Matron or housemother if you could come in on a daily basis.

There are plenty of vacancies to help with the street children and you would be very welcome ..

try this site www.inspirekenya.com/nairochildensplace.htm

or just google " nairobi street children "

There is a very nice home near the rose growing area I think it is called the arms of love ..small babies . but if you just call in I think you could spend a few days helping out as a tourist ..Instead of giving your money to an organisation spend it on the needs of the children .

I have friends who founded a wonderful Orphanage in Eldoret. When I asked about volunteering in Nairobi, they recommended New Life Home Trust.
