Imagine, instead of traveling to some traditional Spring Break or Summer destination, you traveled to Kenya to expand a health clinic, distribute malaria nets, install a clean water storage tank, build onto a school, or help drill a well– and in doing so, you advanced your academic work and made a lasting impact on the lives of thousands of amazing people.

Other Paths is now proud to offer service-learning programs for university and college students. By combining your academic focus and desire to leave a positive mark on the world with our year-round service projects, we will work with you to create a personalized program that is educational, enlightening, and unforgettable.


Other Paths’ primary objective for all volunteer vacation trips is our collective safety. We adhere to common-sense safety and security protocols, including monitoring and following all U.S. State Department warnings. We register all travelers with the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, and all of our service project itineraries contain alternate routes to return to the U.S. if needed. More information about the precautions we implement for the safety of all of our service project teams can be found in our International Travel Safety Guide.


After our work days are complete, our volunteer vacation teams spend three days in one of Kenya’s world-renowned national parks for an unforgettable safari experience. Whether photographing the elephant herds at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro in Amboseli, watching the wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara, or observing the endangered black rhino near Lake Nakuru, our group is always treated to an amazing finish to an incredible journey.

And yes, most of our service project fees, including airfare, accommodations, and other expenses, are tax-deductible, so if you are interested in working with us to design a program suited to your needs, please contact us today.
