Host Families Experiences

Flexibility & Variety

The options with Kenosis travel and explore projects abroad really are limitless. Through our local staff and our long association in each country, we now work with over 1,000 different settings, covering teaching, childcare, healthcare, construction, human rights, youth inter cultural exchange, and conservation among many others. If that is not enough, we can always create new and custom ones using the resources and experience we have, including tailor-made group trips.

This enables us to match volunteer skills and aspirations to a suitable placement and allow volunteers to join us when it is best for them. There are no set start dates and programs run continuously throughout the year, so we can easily fit your schedule. This makes our programs a great alternative to the working staff to students, allowing volunteers to join us on a flexible time frame in creative projects. Whenever volunteers arrive and at whatever time, our staffs are waiting at the Bangalore International Airport for them with all the details for their project fully prepared.

This flexibility also allows people to combine programs, to live and work with friends, and to work at the placement which inspires them most.

Going the Extra Mile

In addition to the standard safety and backup Kenosis Travel and Explore projects abroad assures every volunteer, our staff will really go the extra mile for you if you need it. If you are uncomfortable with commuting to your volunteer placement after we show you during your orientation, we will ride on the commute with you again. If you are feeling homesick or having trouble coping with culture shock, we will sit down with you to lend an understanding ear and share our expertise with you. If you get sick or injured while abroad, we will take you to the hospital and be there for you until you are better.

This begins before you even arrive abroad. If you are applying for credit or a grant, we will help you by writing a verification letter, filling out paperwork, or speaking with your school administrators or placement coordinators. If you are using your time abroad for research or a dissertation, we can help you design your plan of study; many of us have academic backgrounds ourselves. If you had plans to go abroad by other means that fell through at the last minute, we will pull some strings to get you abroad on one of our programs as soon as possible. If your visa gets denied, we will call the embassy to lobby on your behalf.

The fact is, we care. It is important to us that you are a happy volunteer, because happy volunteers are productive volunteers and make the greatest impact.
