“Work with children and teach the underprivileged to surf”.

The program runs From Tuesday to Saturday (from 10.30 am - 5.30 pm) with Sundays and Mondays free to explore the area and Go to the Local Church.  Our aim is to help many children in need whilst adding hope and Love into their lives. This Project was founded by Mandy Weschta in 2007, Since then Many Surf schools have started teaching Surfing to the Less Privileged children.   We give the children encouragement by teaching them new skills and helping them with their Home work daily before Surfing.  These children are from very poor backgrounds. We encourage the children and continue to introduce a good foundation into their lives. We are teaching the children new skills such as: Surfing, Soccer, Literacy and Reading, Computer literacy and programming, African Drumming and Creative movement and Arts and Crafts, Ocean Conservation and Environmental Education.  Your help and assistance in running these Projects will be much appreciated. We do have a leader working with you during all the activities.  These projects run throughout the year (except from the 20th December - 15th January the surfing project is closed).
We welcome you as a volunteer to Pray with the children and read the bible to them.

Volunteer programs Begin every Monday of the Month.  Volunteers can choose from 1 week to 24 weeks ( long term discounts are available). Prices include airport pickup, Airport Drop off, accommodation, FREE surf lessons, use of equipment and a brief Orientation.  They exclude flights, travel insurance and transport to and from the project (Please budget $15 per week for this).
