What's included?

Join this volunteer project for a unique opportunity to work with babies in the middle of a Big 5 Game Reserve.

This baby safe house was born of a desire to provide holistic care that would not limit children in such a way that they would suffer in later years because they didn’t have the opportunity to grow and develop normally. After visiting several places where babies were strapped into baby seats or left in a cot all day, it became a burning passion to start a baby safe house as an example here on the premises. This will provide not only a better alternative to babies but also a practical training centre where our learners can come and learn "hands on" how to look after and take good care of small children.

Is There a Potential Risk?

The work itself is not dangerous. Generally, HIV/AIDS is extremely prevalent in South Africa, so it is your personal responsibility to take care with regards to health and safety, as well as sexual relationships.

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.
