Since 2009 we have been aiming to make a difference through supporting a wide range of community and conservation projects in South Africa and Namibia.
If you are willing to lend your time and skills to a volunteer project of your choice, we will use all our expertise and passion to make this an experience of a lifetime for you. During your time at the volunteer project, we will work hard to ensure that you benefit as a person as much as the project will benefit through your efforts.
None of the projects we work with could function without the dedication and hard work of volunteers from all over the world.
You will assist your project not only with your dedication, time and skills, but your financial contributions will also enable them to make their visions come true. A child’s smile or a healthy animal released back into the wild are the rewards for your hard work. You also have the opportunity to experience the country in a way that no tourist ever will, make friends and broaden your horizons.
You can choose from almost 40 volunteer projects. It is important that you choose a project you find worth your passion and efforts. Our website offers a lot of information including photographs and videos about each volunteer project to give you an idea of what the organisation does and the day to day experience of volunteering there.
For projects you are interested in, you can also request our detailed project descriptions, which are multi-page documents that give you all the information you need to make an informed decision.
Our projects provide help where it is needed the most. Governmental institutions are often overwhelmed by the number of issues. HIV and social inequality as a result of apartheid are just two issues our social projects tackle. Poaching, species extinction and canned hunting are some issues of many that our conservation projects are dealing with. NGOs cannot solve these problems, but they play an important part in minimising their negative effects .
Can’t find what you are looking for? We are large enough to offer you a professional service, but small enough to care about you as an individual. If you didn’t find a project that shares your interests or skill-set, please feel free to contact us and tell us in detail what you are looking for. We have built a large network over the years and will help you find a good cause to support during your time in South Africa or Namibia
"From start to finish the program had
such an impact on my life and the only down side
I can think of is that I was only there for two weeks.
It was truly an amazing experience..."
Allison from the USA
Garden Route Elephant Park
"It was an amazing experience! The children are friendly
and from the first day we learn a lot from them. I loved
doing the volunteer work. The city is vibrant. The project
coordinator does a beautiful job...Somehow I know I
made a difference for the surf boys."
Aline Christina from Brazil
"You’ll start to see the world with a new set of eyes.
If you’re prepared to challenge yourself emotionally
and morally, eager to make a difference and ready
to make life long memories;
then this project is for you!"
Emma from the UK
Jeffrey's Bay Kindergarten
"Volunteering in Cape Town was a great experience for me.
The project was amazing and I had many co volunteers
working with me. The children made me smile all the time
and some of them will probably never leave my heart again."
Josephine from Germany
