Volunteering in a social context allows you to work with children and vulnerable communities throughout South Africa and Namibia. You are able to really make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Social volunteering will place you in children’s homes, schools and local groups which devote time and energy into making a difference to the community. Projects in this category are run by individuals and organisations who are committed to making a difference, and who believe the future of our society lies in working together. There is a wonderful African proverb which states “It takes a village to raise a child”. We all need to be part of supporting our future leaders. If you are looking for projects specifically in healthcare, please see our medical volunteering opportunities in Namibia.
