Volunteer in South Africa

Volunteering in South Africa is essential to closing the gap between the rich and the poor. Approximately two thirds of South Africa’s population live on less than £47 a month resulting in 31.3% of the population living well below the poverty line. This is a shocking statistic and something that can be made better with the help of those who choose to volunteer in South Africa.

Volunteering in South Africa can take on many different roles. You could care for disadvantaged, street and orphaned children, forced to live in sub-standard and poorly-built housing. Love sports? Teach your desired discipline to a group of enthusiastic young people eager to get stuck into a fun pastime instead of turning to a life on the streets. Want to assist in creating a future for endangered African animals? There’s a multitude of conservation projects that need positions filled in game parks and reserves.
