Project Details

Since 2004, Volunteer Africa 32 Degrees South has been placing international volunteers into high-need community and conservation initiatives.

About Volunteer Africa 32° South 

Volunteer Africa 32° South has been operating since 2004. Since starting we have placed international volunteers into high need community and conservation initiatives and provided opportunity to make a real difference. We provide volunteers and interns with inspiring and life-changing experiences, and at the same time helping them to deliver sustainable support to local South African communities and the environment.

Our volunteer programs are run either directly by Volunteer Africa 32° South or as a collaboration between Volunteer Africa 32 Degrees South and local partners. We have carefully selected a few additional hand-picked projects that aren't run directly by ourselves. Volunteer Africa 32 Degrees South provides support for volunteers right from the get-go; from initial inquiries, through the booking process, meet and greet at the airport and with experienced staff and co-ordinator support during the project. Volunteer Africa 32 Degrees South knows that volunteering does not end when you leave us - your connection to the people that you worked with is special and as important to you as it is to us. 

Supporting Volunteers

All of our volunteer projects are driven by us on the ground. We have carefully selected a few additional hand-picked projects that aren't run directly by ourselves, to market.  Upon arrival you will meet one of our very own team. We provide support for volunteers right from the get-go; from initial inquiries, through the booking process, meet and greet at the airport and with experienced staff and co-ordinator support during the project. All too soon it's time to de-brief and transfer back to the airport but don't worry - the support doesn't end there! 

We know that volunteering does not end when you leave us - your connection to the people that you worked with is special and as important to you as it is to us. At VA32 we stay connected even when you have returned home - our vast network of past volunteers, many of whom return, have a strong connection with VA32 and Chintsa. Not only are we available for a chat or e-mail anytime but you will receive newsletters to let you know how your chosen project is doing, be a part of our fundraising campaigns and receive discounts and special offers as a returning volunteer.

Fair Trade in Tourism

In 2010 our Wild Coast Schools Project was the first volunteer project in the world to be Fair Trade certified by Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa (FTTSA) . This means that both the company and the project encourage equitable and sustainable practises in tourism. Every aspect of the project and company were looked into from permits and staff training to meals and marketing. 

Two very important aspects include "social investment" and "business return to the community" where an attempt is made to measure how much the project has put back into the local community. 

In 2010 it was estimated that VA32 put around R 400 000 worth of revenue and support directly into the Chintsa community that year. A figure which we are very proud of and would like to build upon as our projects grow.

Award Winning Volunteer Projects

In 2014 our flagship project the Wild Coast Schools Project was nominated in the top five Outstanding Volunteer Projects in the World at the Global Youth Travel Awards. In 2015, in collaboration with project partner International Student Volunteers (ISV), the Ubuntu Building Project was awarded third place in the same category.

2015 also saw mother-company African Heartland Journeys (AHJ) celebrated as the top Tour Operator in the Eastern Cape at the Provincial Lilizela Awards.
