If you want to volunteer in a country with amazing culture and fascinating landscape and help families mired in poverty, this is an ideal project for you.

Many underprivileged families and working mothers cannot provide adequate care to little children. Therefore Day Care Centers are vital in South Africa. Volunteers can assist in those centers by feeding these children, keeping them clean, playing with them and teaching them. English speaking volunteers might also assist by teaching spoken English to the children.

Join now and improve the quality of life for families living in economically challenging situation and care for their and give them productive care.

Your Activities as a Volunteer

Volunteers might provide assistance in activities that include:

  • Supporting recreational and artistic activities with an objective of educational learning
  • Helping children work in the garden
  • Organizing and developing sports activities
  • Working in the kitchen/helping to serve lunch in the dining room
  • Helping children with homework and teaching basic conversational English
  • Assisting with location-specific duties – routine maintenance, construction, etc

Note: In South Africa, many of our volunteer projects are based in rural communities, sometime located 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 a varied volunteering experience and the extra help is greatly appreciated by the community.

Project Skills Required

No specific qualifications are needed to join RCDP International’s Day Care Project in South Africa. However, volunteers are expected to be flexible and patient, as well as possess a passion and love for children. Volunteers should be empathetic to the often unfortunate situations of these children.

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.
