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.

YOUR ROLE

Volunteer role

There are 2 distinct parts to this travel experience each with its own interesting flavor. When you arrive in the beautiful mountainous Kingdom of Eswatini your role will be as 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 one of the following:

Childcare which involves assisting the teachers at our Neighbourhood Care Points (NCP’s), which act as pre-schools for orphaned and vulnerable children

Building which involves projects such as laying bricks for new classrooms or maintaining the gardens at our NCP’s

Sports which includes assisting with running sporting activities with our NCP children.

As a volunteer, the activities you might be involved in will include any of the following practical projects:

● Teaching basic English and maths to children

● Organizing creative games & craft classes

● Organizing sports days for exercise and fun

● Making clay bricks and preparing land for structures

*If you are a 4 weeks Kruger & Volunteering, volunteer you will not be involved in the Teaching and day to day care of children at the Neighbourhood Care Points. As the children become very excited about new arrivals, the frequent change-over of volunteers disrupts the study and the impacts on attachment issues experienced by the children. 6 and 8 weeks Kruger & Volunteering volunteers, however, will have the chance to participate in assisting with the teaching and care of the 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 Eswatini it’ll be time to relax in this tropical climate and swim the blue waters of the warm and 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.

* Please note that the activities listed above are based on availability and may vary by season. These are samples of activities that are volunteers are likely to participate in.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When you work with children, you will be in the rural areas where modesty will be an important factor. Please make sure you dress appropriately- failure to do so may result in you missing a day of volunteering. More information about the dress code will follow in the pre-flight guide.
