VOLUNTEER IN SOUTH AFRICA THIS SUMMER on a 5 week placement from Saturday 13th July to Saturday 17th August.

Netball coaching in South Africa

Coach sports available:  Football, Rugby, Tennis, Swimming, Netball, Hockey, Cricket, Frisbee

Teach in primary or secondary schools

Work in orphanages

Make a difference to kids in the local township schools where, if it weren’t for this charity, they would not have any sport at all!

Inspire these youngsters and give them hope for the future.

AIDS has devastated the local communities and many kids are orphans living with a granny, older sibling or neighbour. This placement gives you the opportunity to truly leave your footprint and make a difference to the lives of the kids you come in contact with.

And whilst there, you will be sharing the Volunteer House with up to 40 other like minded volunteers and there will be time to have some fun in the evenings and at the weekends.


For sports coaching, you will get plenty of help in the orientation with some tips on how to teach and what to teach.  The teachers in the schools will give you all the help you need to try out your teaching skills.  Many of the children in the orphanages have AIDS so any stimulation and fun you can give them will make a big difference in their lives.
