Pre-School Township Volunteering
This project is located in the beautiful South Africa, and the beachfront volunteer apartment which is provided will be located on a golden sandy beach in the seaside town of the Strand (a 30-minute drive from Cape Town centre) is stunning. The Strand is an idyllic western-style beach resort with a relaxed atmosphere and enough shops, bars and restaurants to keep you entertained and provide a base for socialising and meeting the local community. Full transport to and from the pre-school project will be provided, so it is a beautiful holiday outside the hours of volunteering (which is a 9am-3pm day).
However, despite the beauty that surrounds this area, there is also a huge divide between rich and poor communities, meaning that many people live in townships without adequate resources and facilities for their children to receive a decent education. Volunteers thus, are needed to help assist the teachers and staff with the pre-schoolers, help them feed the little ones at lunchtime as well as general duties in the nursery. The children who will need to be looked after are mostly 4 to 6 year olds; however, if you prefer to look after the younger children (babies and toddlers) this can also be arranged, which displays how flexible the programme is with your needs.
This is an amazing opportunity which would provide you with the backdrop of a holiday whilst helping many disadvantaged children who will remember you and your volunteer work for the rest of their lives!
