About the Program

Special Care facilities and schools, that cater for children and adults with disabilities, are very much in short supply in South Africa. Besides this shortage of facilities, the few that do exist often face various challenges on a daily basis (extremely high operating costs, staff shortages, aging equipment, etc.). The children at these facilities have profound intellectual and physical disabilities and require round-the-clock care. Basic skills like feeding themselves, using the bathroom, walking, talking and even general playing are all very challenging tasks for them. The children will more than likely, never be completely independent, and total care will be required for the rest of their lives. 

This program is ideal for those studying and working in the field (Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Psychology, Speech Therapy, etc.)! Even if not qualified, volunteers bring affection, attention and love. "Special-needs" children require this on a constant basis throughout the day and volunteers provide these extra hands and eyes.

Structure and Facilities 

  • Vary depending on location 
  • Resources available and level of trained staff 
  • No Placements over December periods as children are placed with foster families 
  • Placements available in the local communities only
  • Residing with a host family. 


Tagesablauf

Usual working days go from 08:00 AM - 16:00 PM and include the following activities.

  • Feeding, clothing and playing with children 
  • Assist with transportation of children
  • Meal preparation 
  • General Admin duties
  • Assisting with daily walks and planned activities, fund-raising initiatives, etc.
  • Any knowledge and experience in Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy and Psychology is welcome.  


Freizeitaktivitäten

Cape Town is one of Africa’s most popular tourist destinations for a reason. Its beaches, such as Camp’s Bay, are world renown, and Cape Town’s beachfront and downtown areas are lively at any time. During the day it is easy to find artisans selling their crafts or outdoor cafes to enjoy the Mediterranean climate. At night, there are many excellent bars, clubs and restaurants where locals and foreigners can relax and socialize.
There are numerous cultural sites to visit, including the Bo-Kaap neighborhood and the Castle of Good Hope. They reflect Cape Town’s long history and help explain why the city is one of the most multicultural in the word. Robben Island, the infamous prison where political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, were held during apartheid is a difficult but necessary stop. For outdoor lovers, Cape Town has a wide mix of opportunities. Table Mountain is a breathtaking spot to visit, and there are many nearby hills, mountains and trails that make for great biking, climbing and hiking. Many, like Lion’s Head Mountain, also offer stunning views over the city and ocean below. Join in on tours down the Garden Route and a Game Drive to spot the Big 5!
