Sports Coaching and Community Work
Sports is not always a priority in African schools so by volunteering on our sports initiative in South Africa, you can give local children the chance to develop their love of sports. Support our community projects in the morning and assist with sports clinics in the afternoons. It's a great way to immerse yourself in the South African Culture, enjoy a fun experience and get fit at the same time!

Help keep the children in the community active and fit, and keep them away from negative things in life such as drugs, drinking and crime. Through sports we can inspire kids and give them opportunities that do not exist in their normal environment. Football is the most popular sport but we encourage kids to try as many different sports as possible!
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.
Interactive Educational Programmes
Teach local children about HIV/AIDS and other social issues surrounding this epidemic. Programmes are fun and interactive often using the mediums of art and drama
Volunteers assist in the facilitation of programs as well as the development of existing or future programs.
Physical Development & Movement
Encourage physical development in children in a fun and interactive way! This project also encourages social skills such as team work and communication. Volunteers work with children between 2 and 6 years old in interactive games encouraging hand-eye coordination and an active lifestyle.

, 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.
