"Projects Abroad gave me every tool I needed to live out my passion and my purpose. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of my trip and having the ability to grow real and lasting relationships with community members and volunteers from across the world". - Shelley Smith 

The infamous townships are full of people desperate to create a better world for their children. Since unemployment is high at almost 40%, these poorer areas are full of basic social problems such as alcoholism and domestic violence. Parents are not keen to have their children affected by their surroundings, and attempt to keep them busy through crèches, schools and after school activities, though this is not easy with limited or no funds.

Projects Abroad provides much needed hands-on support to these crèches and after school clubs, to enable them to keep their costs low while still providing a safe and stimulating environment for these children to grow up in.

Whatever your age, abilities or level of experience you are welcome to join a volunteer Care project in South Africa; whether you are on a Gap Year (or even a Gap Month) from further education, or are coming to us during a career break. All we ask is that you have enthusiasm for and a commitment to the work, the staff team and, of course, the children. You will work with children aged between three and six years old. You will have the opportunity to get involved with every aspect of the daily routine. From entertaining the children, through to helping with feeding and dressing, your role will be all-encompassing. You will build strong relationships with the children and will be of valuable support to the local staff.
