Getting Involved

If you have some time on your hands, you might want to think about getting really involved, and volunteering with us.  Spending time with our extraordinary children at the Restart Centre in Gilgil not only benefits them – you will gain enormously too…We set up the Restart Africa Volunteers Programme to offer people the opportunity to live and work with our fantastic team in Kenya, and the programme has received rave reviews from all our volunteers, with many returning for a second or even third session.  In fact our volunteers are our best ambassadors, going on to raise both funds and awareness of Restart.


To get a flavour of how life-changing an experience working at Restart can be, have a look at these testimonials from past gap year volunteers.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.  We’re not only looking for gappers – if you want to take a sabbatical and get a new perspective on life, Restart can almost certainly use your skills – we need teachers, counsellors, sportspeople, artists, musicians, cooks – people who want to engage with the Restart children and the wider Gilgil community.  If you are interested, please complete the information sheet to tell us a little about yourself, and send it to our Volunteer Coordinator ( You can also download our Volunteer Fees here – you’ll see we have a uniquely transparent approach to the financing of volunteers’ visits

Of course you can also be involved with Restart by donatingsponsoring or fundraising for us – it all makes a difference and every little helps…
