Opportunities Volunteering Abroad

Kitengela Sub county level 4 Hospital 

Super medical elective opportunity through Christians Abroad's registered Kitengela partner,,,

Christians Abroad is a medical placement partner with the International Nepal Fellowship, Green Pastures Hospital, Pokhara.

For almost 60 years, the INF Green Pastures Hospital has been providing internationally renowned treatment and care for people living with leprosy. 

This specialised Tuberculosis hospital in the north of Jordan is internationally acclaimed for the care it provides.  

There is a busy out patients clinic along with a spacious and bespoke hospital wards. The diagnostic laborartory is well equipped.


This program is carefully designed with the concept of Christian discipleship in mind, where Gospel outreach forms a central part of the placement. This provides the opportunity to deepen one's faith by being blessed and being a blessing through community development, fellowshipping and doing outreach with the local church, meeting local  people, impacting other lives as well as your own, combined with time out for faith reflection through assisting with an eco-project and/or climbing Mt Kenya - returning with lasting memories is assured.  

Volunteers begin the first stage of their program by serving with a local Pentecostal church in Kenya in local outreach combined with social action through assisting with local orphanage work - these children need caring volunteers to emulate and learn from. 

In the second phase, you travel to a Community Wildlife Sanctuary and volunteer in a wildlife conservation project in a wildlife corridor between a National Park and/or climb Mount Kenya through Sirimoni Down Chogoria Route. This is a time for personal faith reflection.

The third phase is to work with our partner's team in community extension work in conjunction with a Level 1 community hospital - this can be to do with HIV and SDR awareness. Gospel outreach can be a central part of this time.



Our Partner provides quality Christian medical practitioner and social worker placements, combined with Church outreach, in Thika & Kibwezi

There are excellent quality placements in Thika & Kitengela with our Kenyan partners for trauma counselling, medical electives, social worker and teacher volunteer placements.

Kitengela is the home of a Partner HQ, which provides English & IT teaching opportunities in their own classrooms to local residents and to the refugee community from Congo, Burundi and Rwanda. 

There are qualified multi-displinary teaching opportunities in a large Christian local orphanage and Christian private secondary school.

The town is also home to the 'flower people', a whole community that works on the major bulb growing farming industry.  This provides opportunity for student agriculturalists placements and super Christian outreach opportunities with a local Independent Church based at the local orphanage.

Trauma counsellors for displaced people (refugees from Congo, Rwanda & Burundi) are in particular sought for being part of a team that delivers programmes of 16 sessions over 16 weeks, each programme is conducted one day a week for both women and men separately based on a model of trauma focus group therapy (TFTG). The clients are taken through a programme by 2 trained volunteer trauma counsellors.

We have an excellent partnership with a Christian Fellowship in Kathmandu, Nepal, along with a quality hospital placement in Pokhara.

In Kahtmandu, Pastor David has opened his home to a group of orphans and welcomes volunteers to ‘live in’ (volunteer separate accommodation floor, all well managed) and assist him and his wife Maryah, and join the small fellowship as they worship in their church, rebuilt after the 2015 earthquake with help from previous volunteers. Pastor David also helps to lead a network Nepali churches. Recent visits to David have resulted in a range of volunteering opportunities opening up through his ministry and personal contacts in the city, and in the Chitwan jungle villages. The various projects, which are described in more detail and illustrated with photos, can be accessed in the 'View all opportunities' page. 

We have a community development project developing in the Himalayan foothills with another Nepali partner. Please contact recruit@cabraod.org.uk for more details.
