stunning locations ranging from beaches, mountain tops, mountains and game
farms, enjoy the multicultural cuisine of the Cape and it’s …great weather which

Why are volunteers, interns needed?
Boasting abundant natural resources and excellent infrastructure, South
Africa bears all the hallmarks of a highly developed country. However,
considerable economic and social problems remain from the apartheid era and
unemployment figures are high.
Extreme poverty in rural areas drives people to the cities in search of
employment. Fifty seven percent of the population now lives in overcrowded urban
areas and one third lives on less than US$2 a day.
Despite proactive government policies, almost 10 million South Africans live
in poverty housing in vast informal settlements known as townships. Occupants of
townships often live without adequate services in overcrowded shacks pieced
together with cardboard, corrugated iron and scrap wood. Twenty percent of South
Africa’s population is infected with HIV/AIDS. South Africa has many AIDS orphans and vulnerable children, many of whom are
living in appalling conditions. So many challenges, despite all the good
policies, we can’t do this on our own…we could do with more helping
hearts, hands, wallets. Please come help us build a better world for all.
