If you love nature, the environment and big friendly giants, then volunteering in Port Elizabeth is for you. This incredibly rewarding ecotourism project involves working at a game reserve where you’ll have the opportunity to work with South Africa's Big 5: rhinoceroses, lions, cape buffalos, leopards and African elephants.
South Africa Volunteer Abroad Programs
Assist with health promotion activities alongside nurses and caregivers in the rural villages surrounding the beautiful area of St. Lucia, South Africa. Provide much needed home-based care, educate about nutrition and raise awareness about diseases such as HIV.
In 1994, the South African Government removed Physical Education (PE) from school curriculums. Not surprisingly, this lead to a decline in students' involvement in day-to-day physical activity. Volunteers are needed to fill the role of community sports coaches in Cape Town, where sports coaching and PE teachers are desperately needed.
Caring for fellow human beings and nourishing the minds of youth through education, kindness and compassion has to be on the most selfless and rewarding acts of a global citizen. By becoming a teaching volunteer in some of South Africa's more poverty stricken communities, you’ll provide essential teaching support.
