About the Program

Walmer Township is one of the few places in Port Elizabeth where a specific area where the black community lives exists between neighbourhoods populated mainly by the more wealthy white community. This project focuses on bringing the nations of this community together, as well as building it.

Unlike many other townships, Walmer is in a relatively calm and easily accessible area. Poverty, child neglect, alcohol abuse and a high unemployment rate are some of the many difficult challenges you will be facing here, but at the same moment you will experience it is not all sad. The community is very welcoming and loves having volunteers showing an interest in their way of life.

One of the founders Prof Mtyaleka has been running several projects here since 2006 and with the support of our local coordinators you will be guaranteed to be looked after in the township and getting the support to be safe and enjoy your time. 

As a volunteer, you will need to understand the following:

  • You need to be enthusiastic and independent.
  • You need to show respect towards the community and their cultural believes. You might not agree with certain things you see happening, but don’t forget that you are a guest and you can’t change everything in a period of just a few weeks.
  • You will need to show flexibility towards responsibilities, tasks and activities.

Typical Tasks

There is a variety of possibilities, suitable to be combined or to be adapted in order to fit your specific interests and to offer you a challenging and diverse experience. These are some of the options:

  • Izizwe afterschool programme: Our local staff, as well as the volunteers draw up a daily programme of homework assistance, dance, theatre and sports for kids to enjoy themselves. During the holidays, this is a full-time programme with over 250 children attending daily.
  • Primary school: Help out at the primary school by assisting with sports lessons, computer classes and assisting the teachers. The age group is 6 – 12 years old.
  • Dance group: Every day, 20 – 30 children do their homework here. When they are done, they are taught traditional dances and it is great fun!
  • Preschools and creches: You can help out at a crèche or preschool where you will care for 20 – 30 children by giving them group supervision and individual care. You can organise educational activities, play games, go on walks, sing and dance. The age group is 4 – 6 years old.
  • Sports coaching: We have established both basketball as soccer teams for the youth (12-16 years) and coach them 3 times a week after school. If you like to get involved to continue this porgram the children would be thrilled.

Needs

Besides the daily need for help and assistance, there is also a financial need. Please note that any gifts and donations provided by volunteers are extremely appreciated. There is an ongoing need for more practical support such as:

  • Learning materials for the children of the township
  • Sport equipment for the children
  • Food parcels for families and kids in need
  • Clothing for the children, including school uniforms

Guidance and Supervision

Our local coordinators are very involved with the program will supervise your stay and make sure you are looked after. Our coordinators all live in this township and they will introduce you to the people involved in the different projects.

We expect volunteers to be independent enough to try and connect with the community and children and to be pro active. We can´t hold your hand all the time but will help you where we can to make your stay unforgetable.

Tagesablauf

Volunteer working hours are flexible, but will generally be from 8.30am - 3pm during the week including the following tasks.

  • Helping out at the creches
  • Helping at the day care centers
  • Preparing food at the soup kitchen
  • Teaching dance groups
  • Sports Coaching

Freizeitaktivitäten

The Eastern Cape and the surroundings of Port Elizabeth show a large variety of natural beauty and make PE a great central place to visit the variety of South Africa. To the East you will find the Wild coast (former Transkei and Ciskei) which is mostly rural and undeveloped, but closer you will find Addo Elephant Part and great coastal villages such as Port Alfred. To the North you will find the great Karoo; a semi desert area with wide open spaces, large nature areas and long open roads with historical places such as Graaff Reinet, the Baviaanskloof Wilderness and much more. To the East towards Cape Town, you will be amazed by the Tsitsikamma National Park, holiday villages such as Plettenberg Bay, Knysna and natures Valley or the surf mecca of Jeffrey’s Bay. This gives you plenty to see and visit while you are here.

In Port Elizabeth there are a lot of things to as well. Go sandboarding at the sunday river, to Sardinia Bay for a wonderful day at the beach or visit one of the monuments from Nelson Mandela.

Schlafsaal Doppelzimmer
Verpflegung

Our full time cook will provide all meals at the volunteer house on a daily basis. This means you will be able to enjoy great South African home cooked meals, learn how to cook some of these specialties and have a House Mother to comfort you when needed. Our cook is a lady with a warm heart and even bigger embrace for those that need it and she will look after the house and the meals to provide the best possible.

We believe in participation, so volunteers will not be sitting back and get served, they still need to help her cook at times, chop vegetables, clean dishes and warm up the food for dinner themselves.

Our cook will create weekly menus offering breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as alternate meals like stews, curries, stir-fry, soups, pastas and other wholesome options. Meals will be prepared and cooked from Monday to Friday, where on weekends volunteers will only have to heat up a meal or make their own similar meals.

There is free coffee, tea and cordial juice available at any time. For breakfast you will have toast, fruit, yogurt, cereal and/or eggs. For lunch you can have sandwiches with cheese, marmalade, cold meats or other spreads. Please tell our coordinators about any wishes, vegetarian wishes and allergies concerning food.
