Cape Town is an incredibly UNIQUE and DIVERSE location. Offering something for EVERYONE, with the buzzing of city life, to the tranquil setting of the coastline, its hard to know which one we love the most! For the city slickers who love the bright lights and hustle and bustle (you know who you are!) we have launched a brand new project 'Cape Town Design Your Own'. And for our slightly more mature volunteers who would like a more scenic experience our current cape Town project is being refocused to become an over 30's only; 'Cape Town Over 30's Coastal Project'. We have decided to specialise this program as some of our projects require volunteers who have maturity, life experience and knowledge in order to adequately assist and support the vulnerable people and children we work with. So a little more detail about the projects: Cape Town Design Your Own Project Working in the hearts of the largest townships in Cape Town you will be exposed to what is known as the 'dumping ground of Apartheid.' There you will find a melting pot of different cultures, ethnicities and languages. Yet across these differences, there are many parallels such as crippling poverty, substance abuse, unemployment and HIV/AIDS. What makes this project especially unique is that you can 'DESIGN YOUR OWN PROJECT'! Volunteers come to us with such a vast array of expertise, interests, and passions and we want to give you the ability to design your own project and volunteer experience! The options range from teaching assistance to working with orphans and vulnerable children, sports development, dance, and healthcare. You can choose to do either orphan and vulnerable children care full time or combine this with one other and broaden your volunteer experience.

Cape Town Over 30'S Coastal Project The focus of this project is to educate, support, and empower disadvantaged, orphaned, and vulnerable children and youth through a sustainable approach to community development. The activities on this project have been chosen to deliver sustainable change whilst providing you with the opportunity to share your knowledge, skills and experiences with underprivileged communities in Cape Town. As a volunteer, you are an essential part of the African Impact team, assisting our efforts in providing children and youth with a better education and a brighter future. Throughout this experience you will have rewarding opportunities to help prepare for weekly educational learning activities, which will be implemented while on project with the support of African Impact facilitators and fellow volunteers.
