We know, it’s a big decision to totally change the environment and be ready for new challenges far away from family and friends.
We want to assure you, that we’ll do our utmost to make that the best decision you’ve ever made! Cape Town has such a diverse culture, and you get a chance to experience it all, no matter which project you chose to volunteer at. Through the years, we have built up a great reputation and a fruitful relationship with a number of great projects. Projects where you’ll get experience in working with really vulnerable people ranging from babies to adults.
Unfortunately, the legacy of apartheid is still present and the extent of poverty, abuse, domestic violence, malnutrition, illiteracy etc. is huge. So offering voluntary work to our cooperating projects really makes a huge difference for both the clients and the staff.
Through an initial interview with you, we’ll find the perfect matching workplace for you depending on your life- and professional experience and your interests.
You’ll be guided according to your needs but also challenged. And you’ll get a unique opportunity to further develop your skills and personality under the supervision of highly qualified local people. In addition to that, we offer you help and guidance when needed through Tony, who is a true Capetonian, and advice on or arrangement of safe tourism travelling in South Africa.
Cultural understanding is of great importance to us, and that’s why part of our service includes a compulsory weekend seminar before you leave for Cape Town with attendance of all four of us. We’ll give you lots of in-depth information about your project and the history and culture of South Africa. Previous student-volunteers will attend as well to share their best tips.
So, join the programme and get a lifetime experience!
