We’ve developed partnerships with a number of UK universities, developing our very own Team Kenya societies at Newcastle, Northumbria and Sussex University.
Getting involved with Team Kenya during your time at university allows you to support a small charity where your volunteering and fundraising efforts will make a real difference.
By volunteering with Team Kenya, students develop personal and professional skills as well as boosting their employability and access to work after leaving education. This has proven to be greatly successful for multiple students at Newcastle University, who have been able to secure work as a direct result of their voluntary experience at Team Kenya.

Our University Partnerships
The Newcastle University Team Kenya Society is a great way to learn more about international development, complement your academic learning by gaining new skills and making a difference to some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. The summer of 2022 saw a group of Newcastle University Team Kenya Society alumni travel to Kenya to climb Mount Kenya and visit our projects in Ndhiwa, raising over £10,000!
The academic year of 2022/23 has been very busy for the society, expanding to 30 members who have helped organise pub quizzes, bake sales, and socials.
We are currently looking for new members, especially those interested in taking the reins and being part of the next leadership committee. To get in touch please contact us.
The society involves:
- Volunteers promoting Team Kenya on campus.
- Fundraising events including, fashion shows, cinema evening, bake sales, Great North Run, book sales.
