Volunteering is an opportunity to make a difference to people’s lives and to the community in which they live. Volunteers bring valuable skills and knowledge as well as a fresh look and renewed enthusiasm. In exchange we aim to provide a stimulating and learning experience that inspires new ideas that our volunteers can take back to their own communities.
Improve job prospects and employability
For students, volunteering can enhance future employment prospects, for more mature volunteers the experience can provide a new impetus and fresh outlook at any stage of life.
To gain experience
Volunteering provides a chance to get experience in different fields and to discover new areas of interest.
Develop and gain training
Many of the volunteer projects include training opportunities and our volunteers have attended workshops on mindfulness, humane education, permaculture and grassroots activism.
Experience people diversity
Volunteering offers the chance to meet people from different communities and sectors of life. Our volunteers have met with Parliament ministers, local government officials and true stars in communities throughout the Western Cape.
Builds links with organisations
Volunteering can help you build links with particular organisations like schools, NGOs and community organisations.
Volunteering brings people together from all over the world in a common cause and can be bonding, inspiring and great fun.
