Further Information:


The Project is based in Cape Town, in a breathtakingly beautiful village right near to the beach, situated in the Western Cape, Southern Peninsula of Cape town.  This Project involves working with the humble Township Community and less Privileged children from the Township and shanti areas in Cape Town.  We are based in the Sea side Village close to: shops, internet access, free Wi-fi and the beach is within walking distance.   


Volunteers must be 18 years or older, unless accompanied by an adult.  No specific skills or qualifications are necessary besides an understanding of Soccer or any other sport, a reasonable level of fitness and a willingness to help the Underprivileged and to Minister into their lives.  All volunteers must have adequate Hospital cover travel insurance.


This Project gives you the opportunity to work with the Township Children whilst teaching them Soccer daily from 2pm-5pm. The school we teach at is based on the Southern Peninsula of Cape town.  The children come from less privileged back grounds, and they need one on one attention.  You can also assist at the school in the mornings helping the teachers around the school too if you would like too.  The greatest need at the school is to help the teach the children Netball, basketball and soccer.   Sharing in the Children’s joy and enthusiasm is most rewarding and your helping hands will be greatly appreciated.  The Sports Project is aimed at building team work amongst the Children, and to equip them with another life skills.  Few of them have had the opportunity of playing sport, so it is an exciting new challenge for them. We also welcome you to open in Pray with the children before the sports and close in pray after the sports.  You are also most welcome to prepare a short bible study to share with the children.  Spiritual food is essential to helping the children in growing in their faith.  Any old clothes, shoes and blankets are a welcome donation to the community. In the mornings you can explore the area or visit the child care/ orphan care centre and help out there.


Volunteers will be housed in  comfortable accommodation in the False bay area. There is free wi-fi at the house and a fully equipped kitchen, Television and comfortable lounge area.  There is also hot water and the beds come with clean bedding. We also have a cleaner that comes in and cleans the house.  Trains are easily accessible and Transport to the City of Cape town is easily accessible, You can also catch the trains to Simons town and see the Penguins or rent a car and go around the Beautiful Peninsula.  Bedding is provided but volunteers must bring their own towels. Bottled water is readily available in South Africa however the tap water is safe to drink.  Please budget around $45 per week for food.  The Grocery shop is within walking distance from the house. Please also budget around $10 per week for transport to and from the project. As a volunteer you will catch public transport with the other volunteers, or a staff member will go with you.


Volunteers will be met at the Cape Town International airport and transported to their accommodation in Fish hoek, Cape town.  Orientation will take place on the Monday morning after arrival.  It will cover safety tips, transport, supermarkets and shops, entertainment and a brief tour of the Township.
