The program

This program makes a truly positive impact on vulnerable children, abused women and those with physical and mental challenges. Volunteers are desperately sought to help this program across the many projects it works on. From providing care and love to orphaned children, to supporting abused women and children, or day-to-day care to others facing challenges in everyday life, this program truly makes a difference to the lives of others. Volunteer help is essential to the viability of these projects and greatly appreciated. Duties for volunteers vary greatly and a love for working with children and those who really need it, and a lot of patience, are very important. Volunteers need to be flexible and willing to help wherever help is needed. It is also important that they understand the local community situations and the local challenges associated with these types of placements.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide quality support to some of the most marginalized people in Cape Town
  • Improve the future prospects of orphaned or abused children
  • Boost the confidence and aspirations of marginalized children and their families
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike

How you can help

Volunteers are desperately needed to help on this amazing project that supports some of the most vulnerable people in Cape Town, South Africa. Volunteers will gain a huge amount of experience on this social work program, lending a hand on a multitude of initiatives and using their skills and compassion to support those in need. Duties of volunteers vary from each initiative they are working on, however in the orphanages volunteers could assist with feeding and clothing younger children, to playing and assisting with homework and with those struggling at school. These children have suffered great hardship, and often just need someone to listen, a helping hand, warm hugs and affection. At the homes for abused women and children, volunteers will assist with day to day activities and could help with caring for the children or supporting the mothers with programs designed to help them achieve a brighter future.

Volunteers on this program will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Attending to and interacting with the children
  • Helping with cooking/preparing meals, feeding children and other duties where required
  • Working on awareness programs for abused women
  • Working on skill development programs for abused women

3:30pm Walk back to the accommodation

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Cape Town International Airport

Upon arrival into Cape Town airport volunteers will be collected by a representative of the local project team and transported to their assigned accommodation where they will join a short welcome session. On Monday, volunteers attend the full orientation session where a representative from the local team will fill you in on local and regional customs, traveling, rules and recommendations, and of course, what to expect from your volunteering experience in South Africa. This is a great opportunity to get to know your hosts, meet your fellow volunteers, and ask any last questions you may have.

  • Program Arrival Day: SUNDAY
  • Program Departure Day: SATURDAY
  • Arrival/Departure Airport: Cape Town International Airport, Cape Town, South Africa (CODE: CPT)

Accomodatie

Volunteers joining our Social Work team in Cape Town are accommodated with one of our carefully selected local host families - which are perfectly located in the safe and convenient area of Grassy Park in the outer suburbs of the city. In most case they provide the volunteer with a private room, but during busy periods you many need to share with other volunteers. The families are experienced in hosting international volunteers and will take very good care of you.

Staying with a local South African family is a great way to be truly immersed in the local culture. All families have been fully vetted by our local team and have plenty of experience in hosting international volunteers.

Gastfamilie

Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Zuid-Afrika biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Zuid-Afrika dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Zuid-Afrika.
