This list has been compiled by Volunteers serving in Kenya and is based on their experience. Use it as an informal guide in making your own list, bearing in mind that experience is individual. There is no perfect list! You obviously cannot bring everything we mention, so consider those items that make the most sense to you personally and professionally. You can always have things sent to you later. As you decide what to bring, keep in mind that you have an 80-pound weight limit on baggage. And remember, you can get almost everything you need in Kenya.

General Clothing

You may also find that the clothing you bring from home will suffer more wear and tear than ususal. Fortunately, used clothing markets abound in Kenya, even in smaller towns, so it is not necessary to bring two years’ worth of clothes.

Shoes

Durable shoes are an essential investment. Shoes will wear out more quickly in Kenya than you are used to because of all the walking you will do.

Personal Hygiene and Toiletry Items

A range of basic hygiene items is available in most towns and cities, however, if you have strong personal preferences, plan to bring those brands.
