Volunteer Programme

You must be 18 years or older



It is expected that you are mature, enterprising, helpful and able to exercise a high degree of respect and dignity – the quality of the voluntary work is in most cases up to you. You must be open to new impressions and attitudes and prepared to work under conditions that you are not used to. It is also expected that you show interest in learning about South African society and culture. If you develop an understanding of South African society, it will give you a better background for understanding the problems that you might have to deal with through your volunteer work. Wherever you prefer to contribute your volunteer work, you will feel that your efforts are needed and wanted. But remember that it is entirely up to you to make your stay in South Africa a success!



You must be able to understand and express yourself in English.
