Hand in Hand Group
This is a support group for pregnant women and new mothers. Volunteers contribute by providing relevant information to these women, TLC sessions and a platform to discuss everyday problems that they encounter with the hope of improving their understanding and sense of well-being. Volunteers will have the opportunity to assist with the facilitation of a group; identify relevant discussion topics; provide or source relevant health information; and assist with the ongoing development of the project.
Recycling Swop Shop
Through the Swop Shop our volunteers provide an opportunity for children to gain an understanding of the value of working for goods through a recycling exchange incentive scheme. Local children of 18 years and under exchange recyclable materials for tokens with which they "buy" donated items such as clothes & toiletries.
Volunteers assist in the running of the shop; data entry relating to the project; and marketing of the project.

, South Africa
Knysna is based in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa. Stunning views, impressive mountain passes, lush green forests and white sandy beaches.
Knysna itself is nestled on the shores of the Knysna estuary - or Knysna Lagoon, as it is more commonly know. It's the most biologically diverse estuary in South Africa and home to the Knysna Seahorse, the most threatened seahorse species in the world. Knysna is also an avenue to the Tsitsikamma Forest, which stretches from just west of George to the Tsitsikamma River near Humansdorp. This indigenous forest is home to numerous fauna and flora. The forest also houses the worlds's most southerly elephants. Sadly, with only a handful of elephants left, the forset elephants are rapidly becoming part of Knysna's history, rather that Knysna's nature.
