Project Details

Impacting the impoverished community of Pietermaritzburg beyond the life of the volunteer placements.

African Samaritans was established to serve and uplift the communities and environment in the Midlands area. Our main goal is to uplift the community and environment to a more self-sustaining level as KwaZulu-Natal has the largest concentration of indigenous people in South Africa, the highest levels of poverty, unemployment and is also the center of the country’s AIDS pandemic.

You have the option of just volunteering or you could combine touristic activities with your stay. African Samaritans will provide you with the perfect opportunity to be a Samaritan and experience Africa's Ubuntu (Zulu word pronounced uu-BOON-tuu, meaning human kindness) as both a volunteer and a tourist.
