Hearts for Orphans | Volunteer Southern Africa

Heart for Orphans Volunteer Program



Volunteers will spend mornings and early afternoons at a pre school/creche and their afternoons working with vulnerable and orphaned children (7 – 15 years). Volunteers will also get the chance to visit other projects, exploring local community and the natural wonders that surround us.
At the pre-school, volunteers will help the children develop their creative skills through crafts such as painting, drawing, colouring and playing games. Volunteers will assist teachers while children take their lunchtime nap in helping around the kitchen or to organize classrooms.

Volunteers will grab a lift with our team to and from the volunteer project, make lunch at the volunteer base or at our favourite volunteer lunch and connecting points.

The Aim of the program is to give love and care to township children and orphans.

Most of your time will be dedicated to an informal township crèche and an orphanage for small children in Cape Town. Volunteers assist teachers in organizing educational games as well as arts and crafts activities. You will be introduced to projects within the community and spend time with children in this diverse African community (Age 1-7 years). This opportunity will allow you to use your creative skills working at a crèche in the morning and an orphanage in the afternoons, serving the poorest area of the township and thus helping to provide the care and attention these small children crave. This will include feeding, playing and cuddling as well as coordinating activities.

Your evenings and weekends are free to explore the cities culture and restaurants, relax on our beautiful beaches, hike in the great outdoors or enjoy the buzzing nightlife. Experience African culture at its best in the beautiful city of Cape Town.

Once you have arrived you will be taken on a tour of the Cape Peninsula, you will visit Penguins, Explore Cape Point, do Wine Tasting, Mountain Biking… and so much more.
