Hello Volunteers,

Kenosis Foundation (KF) is one of the developing volunteer abroad organizations in the world. Founded in 2013, we send and receive 10,000 people abroad each year on a variety of service projects and internships overseas. All participants receive unparalleled in-country support from our full-time, professional staff to ensure that the experience is safe, worthwhile and fun. Our head office is located in Bangalore city, Karnataka state, India.

KENOSIS receives Volunteer or intern abroad from Africa, Asia, Europe, or Latin America. We offer overseas voluntary work placements including teaching, child and elderly care, women’s empowerment, Girl children education, Youth empowerment and skills building, NGO and community development, micro-credit and micro-finance, human rights, building infrastructure and toilets in rural communities, livelihood and entrepreneurship, conservation & environment, medicine & healthcare, journalism, law & human rights, international development, local tourism and cultural exchange, organize 2-5 days workshop and training on various relevant topics to the needs of the group and more. If volunteers or partners have special concern and needs, can tell us, we can meet their needs. We are not a funded organization nor we have our own infrastructure to provide fee food, and stay. We request you to understand, and meet your entire expenses when you stay with us. We will in advance tell you the fee that can cost for short (2-4 weeks) stay and longer stay ( above 1 to 3 or 6 months or a year). All your fee covers in-country expenses while you stay with us.

Our entire project depends on the time and skills of our past and future volunteers from abroad. We welcome everyone above 18+ and apply at anytime of the year to participate in the projects and support our cause in India and Nepal.
