South Africa is an ideal location to volunteer on your gap year, as it's home to many childcare projects that are always in need of support. You can go backpacking across the continent, and then stop here to look after orphaned children in a care home, work with those that have been hospitalised, or volunteer in a South African school. It's the perfect way to make a difference, live like a local, and make your travel feel meaningful.
