Young African kids are so happy despite their difficult circumstances

Volunteer at an After School Daycare

From just $ 595 for 2 weeks

What does the price include?

This organization provides a wonderful service to the disadvantaged children of Imizamu Yethu township. iKhaya le Themba (Home of Hope) is a safe space for children to come to after school from 2pm to 5-30pm. Most of their parents are still at work during that time and this place is like an oasis in the desert for kids. They get a meal, help with their homework and lots of different games and activities to do such as knitting and computer literacy classes. Laughter, chatter and fun are in abundance at any given time. There’s a green lawn for them to play on, a jungle gym and plenty of other stimulating things to do. Most importantly though, they get to just be kids, in a safe place.
