Social work - support children in South Africa
Duration of stay: at least 2 weeks, up to 3 months possible
Start of project: every Monday
Location: Cape Town
Our partner schools are located in settlements or townships which are happy about every kind of support. In most cases the classes are very big and can comprise up to 60 children. Depending on the project you will assist and teach children aged 1-16 years and support the teachers on site. Many projects assist the classes in English and in some of them the children already have a basic vocabulary.
The youngest in the school enjoy new games and appreciate you bringing a lot of time and devotion and creating a great day for them. Some schools have computers and it is possible to develop a class about computer usage. Often times there are sports activities after class which you will accompany and bring in new ideas to get the children off the streets.
During your stay in the project you will be living in a volunteer home with the other participants. Every day, a driver will take you from the house to the project and back.
Application for the project:
- basic knowledge of the English language
- important information (e.g. allergies, what you can’t eat)
