The main objective of this project is the facilitation of poverty prevention programmes and upliftment in the settlements. Employment and education opportunities are provided where possible. We try to assist the community through specific programs such as "Winter Hope" whereby we provide warm clothing and shoes to the children, blankets to families as well as obtaining building materials to fix leaking roofs and rebuild structures where necessary to try and provide some relief from the winter cold which can be freezing when your only shelter is a damp, leaking corrugated iron structure.
Another regular program is to provide with, assist in or educate communities in agriculture projects such as subsistence farming. With this, we help start new vegetable gardens, work in existing vegetable gardens or educate about growing food for own use. This assists with food aid and poverty alleviation.

The main aim is empowering the local community and supporting them with their basic needs. We regularly distribute food hampers to the underprivileged and clothes in the winter. We engage these communities in regular education, motivation and social upliftment programs as well as exciting events such as fun at the beach, various sporting activities and movie outingst throughout the year.

Welcome Orientation

Day 1: Welcome to South Africa
You are collected from the airport and taken to your volunteer accommodation in Table View where you can check in and get comfortable before your welcome orientation and evening BBQ (braai). You will also receive your arrival package which includes a little bag, t-shirt, welcome book and sim card.

Day 2: Orientation Tour of Cape Town
You will head in to Cape town with a member of staff who will take you on a walking tour of Cape Town together with the other new arrivals.

After the walking tour you can take a bus or walk to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Sit back and sip a cocktail, enjoy some fresh fish and watch the ships in the busy working harbour or walk around taking in the shops, markets and musicians on the sidewalks. Alternatively, you can take the cable car up Table Mountain and enjoy breathtaking views of the city, or visit the famous Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was held in prison during the apartheid era (own expense).

In the evening head back on the local bus to Table View where you can start planning your next day. We will help you book and arrange all that you need. Later, you can join the guests and the locals at one of the restaurants or bars along the beach front in Table View - all within rolling distance from the hostel where you will be staying the night.

Day 3: Day Off
You will have the day at your own leisure to relax and get ready before your project starts. Sunday dinner is a DIY evening, allowing volunteers to show case their local meals or join in a bring and BBQ.

Weekly Schedule & Activities

Volunteers work 5 days a week from Monday to Friday. Mondays are office based for both new and old volunteers. New volunteers receive their teacher training and additional information on our projects and the areas they will be working at. Old volunteers assist with planning for the week, equipment maintenance, re-organising storage spaces for equipment, donation sorting etc. Some days volunteers will work a full 8 hours and other days 4 to 5 hours depending on the needs of the project. This project is flexible and volunteers may need to use their initiative and run part of the project on their own. Volunteers can work in the office with fundraising or administrative tasks as well as in the settlements with the day-to-day activities and running of the educare centres. Volunteers can also help arrange annual events like Youth Day activities on June 16, a Christmas party and cooking competitions.

Previous projects include:
- Clearing ground, erecting pre-school classrooms, fencing and laying down grass for a pre-school
- Building a brick school for disabled children
- Planting and maintaining several vegetable gardens for families
- Planting and maintaining a vegetable garden for the pre-school
- Building a camp for goats who were kept in overcrowded, inhumane conditions

You may be required to do some of these tasks in your free time:
- Administration - lesson plan preparation, developmental activies, research, etc. (This is mostly done after project hours in preparation for upcoming days.)
- Helping with washing up after meals, cleaning classrooms, washing bedding and toys
- Maintaning a safe and hygienic environment for the children at all times
- Fundraising

School & Public Holidays

This project runs all year round, however, during school holidays we run the project according to our holiday program which mainly takes place in the settlements/townships where they live. The program includes sports days, game days, outings to the beach or pools etc. During the holidays it's a time for the kids to have fun so the programs are less structured and may change depending on the number of children that arrive on the day. Working hours are generally from 08:00 to 14:00. Depending on the funds available you could also be involved in a construction or renovations program (building work, vegetable gardens, painting etc.).

School Holidays 2018:
29 Sep - 08 Oct
3 Dec - 08 Jan 2019

Due to Christmas and New Year’s celebrations between December 25th - Jan 2nd, the projects are closed, however, volunteers may still use the accommodation and food and join us for Christmas lunch on the 25th.

Safety Management

With every new arrival we have a safety and orientation briefing where we discuss issues such as general safety in South Africa for example, what to do in the settlements, where not to go, what to do in case of an emergency, sea currents, HIV AIDS and crime. There is a volunteer co-ordinator with our volunteers at all times while on project to ensure the safety of the children and volunteer. We offer all our volunteers 24/7 support and assistance.

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.

Accommodation can be upgraded to private rooms for an additional cost.
