Thanks so much for your interest in the Journey of Compassion Voluntourism Program (Journey to Destiny Ministries). We would love to provide you with an amazing adventure in Kenya while you experience the joy of making someone else’s life better through our many opportunities to serve. With JTDM  you’ll have the best

“Voluntourism” experience.

Why Kenya? Kenya is one of the most stunning countries in Africa, full of natural wonders. From tropical beaches (white sand) and magnificent scenery to rich culture and incomparable wildlife, Kenya has everything in abundance. In this beautiful country, you can visit the traditional Masai on their ancestral lands, spot incredible wildlife, admire the stunning rift valleys from the viewing points and explore beautiful villages and culture.  

Why Voluntourism? Voluntourism is the ultimate opportunity to serve the underserved and truly make an impact that can be felt. There are children in orphanages who need love and care. There are medically underserved populations with limited resources and with a huge demand for service. There are students in overpopulated, understaffed schools that need extra teachers, games coordinators and creative activity volunteers. Your service, kind words, and care make a huge impact in these poor and underserved communities. 

Why JTDM? Journey to Destiny Ministries is committed to providing safe, affordable, and impactful voluntourism opportunities for your student group. Your safety is our priority and is assured through careful vetting of placement locations, accommodations, and transport personnel.

Apply for our voluntourism experience and have the adventure of a lifetime while making an impact through service. We guarantee you’ll have memories to last a lifetime.

There is a non-refundable application fee of $300.

Below are the options available to choose from based on your preference and skill set. Participants should have an open mind and flexible attitude for working in a new and different environment. Each volunteer should bring plenty of energy and enthusiasm to make a difference.

Our Voluntourism Options.

We have 4 Voluntourism Programs:

Medical and Health

Medical and health volunteers will participate in a hands on program working beside health professionals in medical clinics, dispensaries, and hospitals in the different towns where our program provides placements including: Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Homabay, Siaya / Bondo, and Kakamega.

Volunteer Teaching

Most of these schools are often underfunded and consequently understaffed. By volunteering in this sector, it would be a help in a big way.

Teaching in Kenya is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to realize your passion and improve the lives of children through education while creating life-long memories and friendships.

High School Group

The main objective of our high school volunteer programs is to help the youth gain the life changing, life affirming experiences that voluntourism can give. By participating in our programs activities students learn skills like responsibility, punctuality and being accountable. They also cultivate leadership skills and learn how to delegate tasks to others.

Children's Home/Care Center

The aim of this volunteer program is to provide adequate help, love and care to orphaned children living in poverty in children’s homes. Volunteers will help the children with basic activities of daily living and will also engage them in various fun activities to bring them joy and create a playful atmosphere at the centers.


The typical program schedule can be broken into three parts:

Day 1
