As a volunteer on the Childcare project, you will play an important role in helping increase access to care and education for children from underserved communities  in Cape Town. Some of the children have lost their parents to crime, alcohol or drug abuse, and HIV/AIDS, forcing them to live with their relatives or neighbors, who often do not have the means to take proper care of them.

This project is well suited to caring volunteers with great levels of enthusiasm and energy who are interested in supporting the day-to-day operations of childcare centers with limited resources.

Your tasks may include teaching and caring for the children, organizing games and activities, helping with general duties of the center, including cooking and feeding the children.

As you will be working alongside the local placement staff, you are not required to have childcare or teaching experience to participate on this project.
