George Faur from Colombia Community health and development project
Before this trip it never crossed my mind that I wanted to become a teacher. I originally signed up for community development projects but soon found out I would be involved in a range of teaching projects. I embraced it and immersed myself completely into teaching. After the first English class it dawned on me that this is the right...
Kathryn Farrell from Australia Teaching English in local schools
They really work hard to make your experience rewarding and valuable. Your responsibility as a volunteer is to go with clear expectations of the task.

llison Weingarden  from Morocco Women's rights and economic empowerment project
Volunteering in India with Kenosis was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am so glad I listened to the calling I felt and went! One of my favourite moments (I have way too many to just pick one) was probably when the women I taught threw me a surprise goodbye party. They had prepared a special...

Isabella Barie from Australia Medical internship project in India
Volunteering in a different country with an entirely different culture and language has changed my perspective on the different lifestyles each individual may have. Being in India for a month, I've learnt that a simple smile speaks so much more than words could, especially with the language barrier. Making friends with other volunteers from different countries and hearing their own...
Marie Kildebæk from Denmark Women’s empowerment project in India
Lasse Brøndby Hemmingsen and I (Marie) from Denmark travelled to India and had a wonderful time with Kenosis Foundation (KF). I learned a lot about south Indian culture, women care and I also learned a lot about myself. I also had a lot of fun; Issac, who is the Founder and Director of Kenosis Foundation (KF), is a good man,...
Stephen Whyte from Philippines Building and renovation of houses in of poor families in rural areas of India.
“It’s good that there’s age diversity in the participants. The communities seem very supportive. I really like the fact that families in the community get an income through the homestay. It’s been excellent!” I think that the experience of living with a family is very valid and helps with an understanding of the context of the society – the families...
