Volunteering in Nairobi

I'll be in Nairobi for the next two months and am looking for a non-profit organization to volunteer for. Any suggestions for an organization?

Do you want to do this full time or are you in Nairobi for something else and want to volunteer part-time?

Jhhns,

Please read the guidelines about stating affiliations to organisations and the posting of links, as in another post you say you run the organisation

"You can:

Post information in your About Me section of your profile.

Participate in a discussion related to your business or a competitor's business, but you must clearly state your affiliation as a representative. Our members are entitled to this information so that they can be aware of any potential bias in your comments. A simple statement like, "Hi, I'm John from XYZ Tours," is sufficient disclosure.

You cannot include:

Links to strictly commercial websites or a blog affiliated with or promoting any one property or business.

Links, contact information, or recommendations for your business, even if your business or property would seem to be an ideal fit for a traveler's needs. Other forum members may recommend businesses or properties, but as an owner or representative you may not recommend your own business or property.

Any critical comments about your competitors.

Links or contact information to your charitable organization or direct or indirect requests for donations or contributions. We admire that so many of our members are committed to enriching the lives of others while they travel. We welcome you to discuss the charities you support, provided the discussions are travel-related and relevant to the destination in which they are posted. If you represent or are affiliated with a charity, though, please add your charity's name and website link to your profile. You may also add your affiliation to the charity if applicable."
