Through education and care protect lives and families while immersing in fascinating South Africa culture and exploring the country.

Large scale HIV/AIDS infection has adversely affected South African communities. Many families have broken down and many children orphaned. RCDP International’s HIV/AIDS project facilitates educational outreach and supports terminally ill patients (adults and children) with at-home care and offers counseling and emotional support to affected family members. This project is fully supported by schools, churches, local clinics, social services and the district office for social development, as well as UNICEF.

Join now and take up this wonderful opportunity to volunteer in our HIV/AIDS project in South Africa. Through your work and dedication, the project will gain more momentum and succeed in saving thousands of lives.

Your Activities as a Volunteer

Volunteers will provide care to HIV/AIDS infected patients and engage the community in educational and training activities to increase awareness and halt the spread of HIV/AIDS in South Africa. Volunteers may utilize therapeutic story-telling to develop coping skills in survivors and families, depending on circumstances. Other volunteer duties include:

  • Counseling in hospitals and communities
  • Encouraging active participation among community members in HIV/AIDS preventive education
  • Assisting community HIV/AIDS organizations with outreach programs such as hospice care, recreational and educational programs, voluntary HIV counseling and testing, and educational seminars and conferences about the virus

Note:In South Africa, many of our volunteer projects are based in rural communities, sometime located at a great distance from the city limits of Cape Town. In each local community, we support multiple projects such as orphanages, schools, HIV/AIDS project, hospital etc. Volunteers will help or participate in more than one project during their experience. This multi-tasking presents varied volunteering experience and the extra help is greatly appreciated by the community.

Project Skills Required

No specific qualifications are required of volunteers wishing to participate in the HIV/AIDS volunteer project in South Africa. However, applicants should have a focused interest and bear passion for public community outreach and other healthcare-related activities. Volunteers are expected to be flexible.

Project Location

This project is located in Cape Town, the legislative capital of South Africa. Cape Town is the quintessential melting pot: it is a city alive with creativity, color, sounds and tastes. While walking through the city’s streets and meeting its people, you will fall in love with its natural beauty, creative freedom and incredible spirit. Stellenbosch is located about 50 km east of Cape Town and has a population of just over 100 hundred thousand. It lies in a hilly region and is sheltered in a valley at an average elevation of 136m. The area around Stellenbosch is known as wine country and has a very lush environment.

Our other programs like located in Albertinia, Knysna, Oudtshoorn and Riversdale. All of these places provide excellent volunteering environment.
