Volunteer

Giving of your time and skills is an invaluable way to bring joy and hope into the life of a child who's been neglected or abused.

Children learn by imitating others; if we surround our children with compassionate, caring and responsible role models, they will grow up to become compassionate, caring and responsible adults.

Think you've got what it takes?
Before commencing any volunteer work, you will be required to attend a compulsory orientation session – generally held on the first Saturday of every month from February to September, starting at 9am. There is an administration fee of R50 to cover costs.

Volunteering is not limited to the projects detailed here, and there will be time at the orientation to discuss any specific ideas that you may have.

Please note: volunteering takes place mainly during working hours. Police clearance may be required, especially for those interacting directly with the children.
