AMURT and AMURTEL are soliciting volunteers for overseas programs, specifically Kenya. I am interested in knowing how reputable and how safe the program is.

It looks like AMURT is considered legitimate by the American Council for Voluntary International Action

From a google search it looks like they have partnered with FEMA, the UN and USAID
