Sobre o programa

Volunteer to help care for orphaned and vulnerable children in Swaziland. With the world’s highest HIV/AIDS prevalence, many of Swaziland’s children have lost their parents and thus face food shortages, lack of adequate shelter and care, poverty and lack access to education. All Out Africa established and supports six Neighbourhood Care Points (NCPs) in Swaziland each of which hosts between 30 and 80 children. The role of these NCPs is to provide pre-school education, food, support and guidance to vulnerable and orphaned children in their communities. 

The NCPs enable these children to remain living with their extended family by providing free education, meals and support to relieve financial pressure on an already stretched family support network. This concept established by UNICEF has been a much needed response to the HIV/ AIDS crises in Swaziland where one in three children are vulnerable. These NCPs provide safe environments within the community for these children to grow and thrive during their early development and offer a foundation for the child’s education.

The Child Care Project gives you the opportunity to assist these vulnerable children working with our local staff and community volunteers in a number of different ways; by assisting with pre-school education and facilitating the All Out Africa syllabus of activities, providing meals, helping to guide the children, while giving them care and adult support.

VOLUNTEER ROLE

As a volunteer on the Orphan Care Project you will be working with existing Neighbourhood Care Points (NCPs) in the local community. Your role is to assist our local staff and community volunteers with teaching of the syllabus, which includes maths, reading, writing, arts & craft, storytelling and physical activity. You will also participate in weekly sports days held at the NCPs, and assist with serving breakfast and lunch. Generally it’s also a great opportunity to bring fun and laughter into the children’s lives.

Some of the activities you will get involved in may include:

  • Teaching English and maths and marking worksheets
  • Leading role play and imagination activities
  • Designing activities that support the syllabus
  • Reading stories and facilitating learning through storytelling 
  • Giving support and attention to the children
  • Organising games & sports activities to help them learn through play 
  • Assisting with preparing and serving of meals
  • Teaching basic life skills including teeth cleaning and hygiene 
ITINERARY

Day 1
Fly into OR Tambo Airport, Johannesburg (more details in “Arrivals” section in the Swaziland Destination Brief) where you will be met by All Out Africa staff members who will transfer you by road from Johannesburg to the Kingdom of Swaziland. It is approximately a five hour journey from the airport to you to your accommodation in the Ezulwini Valley (Valley of Heaven).

Day 2
The second day begins with an informative presentation that will brief you on all you need to know about the culture and country, how to effectively contribute during your volunteer experience, and what to expect on the tours.

In the afternoon you will embark on a Cultural Tour where you will visit the museum to learn about Swazi history and culture, and then will walk around a real Swazi village to experience day-to-day life in Swaziland. The tour finishes with a local culinary delight – a traditional Swazi braai!

Day 3-5 and other weekdays for the duration of your stay

You will spend these days volunteering on your orphan care project.

Day 6-7 and other weekends for the duration of your stay

These two days are a free weekend, a great time to explore the magic of Swaziland! You have the opportunity to join any of a number of fantastic excursions including zip lining across the stunning mountains and gorges of Malolotja National Park, white water rafting on the Great Usutu River, a quad bike tour or a rural home stay at a living Swazi village to mention just a few of the incredible activities Swaziland has to offer.

We have built lasting friendships with our partners and are deeply engaged in the local communities and conservation areas we work in and committed for the long term.

Our history

All Out Africa came from a humble beginning in late 2003. The first office was a shared desk in an internet café at Malandela’s farm center in the tiny Kingdom of Swaziland. The only asset was a 1985 land-cruiser affectionately known as the passion wagon which was used to ferry volunteers between community and conservation projects. 

All Out Africa was the brain-child of young conservationist and social-entrepreneur Kim Roques who was joined by long-term friend and responsible tourism expert Roland Thorne. At the time, the concept of volunteer travel as a means of implementing projects was novel but gradually the dream gained momentum and in early 2004 All Out Africa was born and a handful of dedicated individuals joined the team to implement important community and conservation projects through offering a rewarding travel experience to international volunteers. 

Despite the humble beginnings, the dream was always big and All Out Africa has grown significantly every single year since it began. From those beginnings All Out Africa has grown to become one of Africa’s leading volunteer and responsible travel organizations with bases in Swaziland, South Africa, Mozambique and Botswana employing over 50 staff and owning more than 15 vehicles. One constant throughout has been the passion, dedication and care of the staff that make up the organization, which feels more like a family than a work force. Despite having grown significantly since inception, we view where we are now as just the beginning. Join us and be a part of the story.

The name All Out Africa was derived from the saying “go All Out” meaning, “give of your best” or “no half measures” and from our focus on Africa. All Out Africa’s logo is designed to signify the inter connected nature of people, wildlife and travel. As a brand, All Out Africa has come to signify travel, adventure, care and dedication.

Why choose us

Our volunteers experience Southern Africa, it’s people and culture more than any ordinary tourist. They work along side members of the community to build shelters, teach classes or learn a new game-- this experience is sure to give back as much as our volunteers put in. Combined with our adventure tours division, we also offer in-house adventure tours combined with volunteer and intern experiences; giving us totally unique products and the opportunity for clients to both give back and have a holiday. 

By signing up with us you are donating your time and skills to work directly with communities in need through a structured project. There are many benefits of volunteering through an organization like ours. Sometimes it is hard to find projects to support in a foreign country that are safe, worthwhile, and reputable. When you sign-up for one of our projects for 2 or 12 weeks, you become part of a bigger, sustainable plan that our team of qualified staff have carefully crafted. You will also receive travel and visa support, orientation, a safe place to stay, logistical support, in addition to clear expectations of the work you will do. This is why we charge a fee for volunteering or interning abroad. 

Your project fee goes towards a company you can trust, an experience that is worthwhile and an opportunity that will make a positive and sustainable impact on the community you have chosen to serve.

Who we are looking for

All Out Africa works within South Africa, Swaziland, Mozambique and Botswana. We cater to people of all ages and backgrounds, looking for a wide variety of African experiences, from tours, volunteering, research and internships. Our goal is to share our passion for southern Africa’s people, places and wildlife with the world and offer adventures that change lives.

It was a really good program, I learnt a lot from Marine life, the only con I would say is to be clear on the diving preconditions, I had to do a review scuba that was not necessary, if more information is requested to the diver probably it can be solved with a dive if possible and avoid the review ...
