Make a positive impact by helping to provide street children a healthy home, quality education and valued companionship.

A lot of children in South Africa can be found in streets roaming hopelessly. Many of these children are without parents, doing drugs, and are sometimes caught up in petty and serious crimes. These children can be rehabilitated back to their families and societies. RCDP International runs street children/youth at risk project in Cape Town and has been helping these children pursue normal childhood. Through this program, we provide love, care, life skills and a feeling of acceptance to these children.

Volunteer now to give love, care and attention to the street children while also exploring part of Africa and immersing in local culture. It will guarantee be an experience of a lifetime.

Your Activities as a Volunteer

In addition to day-to-day support, RCDP’s street children project also offers courses concerning life-skills, performing arts, career development, leadership training and entrepreneurial skills. Volunteer’s daily activities may include teaching English, helping with homework and teaching basic conversational English. Volunteers will organize recreational and artistic programs with the objective of providing educational learning (by reading stories, performing puppet shows, caring for and playing with the children or organizing and developing sports activities). Additional assistance with kitchen work is essential.

Project Skills Required

There are no specific qualifications required to join this street children/youth at-risk project. However, volunteers must act as positive role models to these children. They should be enthusiastic about caring for others and be empathetic to unfortunate.

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.
