South Africa

Helping Kids in Cape Town

From AU$875

“Our two weeks volunteering in South Africa was a life changing experience that I will never forget. I would highly recommend anyone that is considering to volunteer overseas to do so with Totally Travel - you won't regret it!”

Doreen’s Creche is a well-established childcare centre in Masiphumelele township near Cape Town. The centre takes care of over 60 children aged from three to six years during the day whilst their parents go out to work. It’s a big job, looking after all these lively, enthusiastic kids and the project needs all the help it can get! 

That’s where you come in. If you love spending time with children, are up for a challenge and have lots of energy then this project is perfect for you. It’s an amazing opportunity to have a meaningful impact on the lives of disadvantaged children, while working alongside a team of inspiring women and having a whole lot of fun. You’ll be playing, colouring in and reading to these kids every day. To top it off, you’ll get to spend time living in Cape Town and enjoying all this beautiful city has to offer. Who would have thought giving back could be so much fun?
