About the Program

All children have to attend a school and more schools serving poor communities have been built. However, the quality of education for the poorest South Africans largely remains sub-par. Material shortages exist, and the influx of rural migrants into cities like Cape Town has brought overcrowding. Additionally, many children come from homes with problems like abuse, HIV/AIDS, illiteracy and unemployment. These translate into poor student attendance, behavioral problems and undernourished children that cannot concentrate in class. Volunteers bring energy and new backgrounds into the classroom. They help local teachers maintain classroom order and provide more individualized attention to students, especially those falling behind. They share their culture and skills, and help expose the children to new ideas. Volunteers live and work in Cape Town or the surrounding areas.

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!

Informationen zur Anreise

The Volunteer South Africa Program begins on a Sunday and ends on a Saturday - you are therefore welcome to arrive on any Sunday, throughout the year. You will have an Orientation day on the Monday, and start at your project on the Tuesday.

Should you arrive during school holiday period we will place you at an alternative project namely at a childcare project working with children from 1 - 6 years old and once schools reopen then we will place you at the primary school.

We understand that flights may be expensive and you may not always be able to secure a flight to arrive on set arrival dates, we are therefore happy to accommodate last minute bookings even participants who are only able to arrive on a day where they are able to secure an affordable flight.
