site both during and at the end of pre-service training.

Volunteers may not own or operate motorized vehicles

(including motorcycles), but they are allowed to rent vehicles

during approved vacation periods. Trainees and Volunteers

are not allowed to drive any vehicle during training or at

their sites, Volunteers are not allowed to operate or ride on

a “bicycle taxi,” he/she must wear a bicycle helmet. Refusal

of these policies will result in administrative separation from

Peace Corps Kenya.

presentation of a receipt.
(Helmets approved by the USCPSC
are very difficult to find in Kenya!)

All Volunteers are given the option to purchase a bicycle.
