Child care, Orphan care and Teaching Project Jeffrey's Bay.

Do you want to work with Children adding Hope and Love into their lives whilst staying in a Beautiful Coastal Village? If so Then this is the perfect project for you.

“Share your Love and Care with Underprivileged Children in Jeffrey's Bay, World re-known for our beautiful beaches and surfing spots"

This project is all inclusive with Meals and Accommodation.

Enjoy your time adding Hope and love into Children's lives whilst living close to the beach in beautiful South Africa.  The Leaders at the child care say: "We saw the need at our local township to teach life skills to the children, so we decided to come alongside the children and invest in their lives showing them the love of Christ and teaching them life skills.  The children that we work with come from very poor backgrounds. We encourage the children and help within the school and child care centre with activities for the children. We saw that the Childcare Centres needed assistance so we decided to come alongside the Care Centre and school within the Sea side Town of Jeffreys bay and assist them.   These Centers were started out of a desperate need for education, parenting and caring.  Many of the children were left alone to care for themselves or were being looked after by members of the community whilst their parents worked.   Some of the children have no parents and are orphaned. We encourage the children and help within the school and child care center with activities for the Children.  As a Volunteer you will assist the teacher in teaching the children new skills, Bible Study, Pray and worship, arts and crafts and helping with general activities.  The children really need  1 on 1 interaction. If you want to prepare a lesson or Bible study with the children, then you are welcome to liaise with the classroom Teacher to do so.

When Joining our Location in Jeffrey's bay, we encourage you to bring your God given talents, and share this with the children in need.  Please discuss your talents with the leader on arrival so she can organize for you to help in the areas of your talents.  You will have the Opportunity to get involved in extra projects we run (at no extra cost).  The Center runs the following projects that you can get involved with:
