WHERE YOUR PROJECT FEE GOES
By signing up with us you are donating your time and skills to work directly with communities in need through a structured project. There are many benefits of volunteering with an organization like ours. Sometimes it is hard to find projects to support in a foreign country that are safe, worthwhile, and reputable. When you sign-up for one of our projects for 2 or 12 weeks, you become part of a bigger, sustainable plan that our team of qualified staff has carefully crafted. You will also receive travel and visa support, orientation, a safe place to stay, logistical support, in addition to clear expectations of the work you will do. This is why we charge a fee for volunteering or interning abroad.
Your project fee goes towards a company you can trust, an experience that is worthwhile and an opportunity that will make a positive and sustainable impact on the community you have chosen to serve.
There are 2 distinct parts to this travel experience each with its own interesting flavor.
When you arrive in the beautiful mountainous Kingdom of Swaziland your role will be a volunteer as you get involved in projects that aim to uplift the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children.
Volunteers have the option of choosing the following projects:
Childcare which involves assisting the teachers at our Neighbourhood Care Points (NCPs), which act as pre-schools for the orphan and vulnerable children
Building which involves projects such as laying bricks for new classrooms or maintaining the gardens at our NCPs
Sports which includes assisting with running sporting activities with our NCP children.
The final week of your experience is spent on the beautiful golden sand beaches of sunny Mozambique. After two weeks
of hard work in Swaziland, it’ll be time to relax in this tropical climate and swim the blue waters of the warm and the inviting Indian Ocean. Mozambique is a colorful and vibrant African country like no other and it is here that you will get to spend the last days of your trip -a wonderful finale to an inspiring tour.
