Many South African children grow up incredibly disadvantaged, having lost their parents to crime, alcohol or drug abuse, and HIV/AIDS, forcing them to live with their relatives or neighbours, who often do not have the means to take proper care of them. As a volunteer, you’ll contribute in affordable childcare centres, that aim to provide high quality care and education despite operating on small budgets.
Childcare volunteers assist in all areas, teaching and caring for children, organising games and activities and helping with general duties like cooking and feeding.
This project is well suited to caring volunteers with great levels of enthusiasm and energy who are interested in supporting the early stages of children’s development.
As you will be working alongside local placement staff, you aren’t required to have childcare or teaching experience to participate on this project.Apply now
