Sports Coaching & Community Outreach
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!
Aimed at educating the community about healthy nutrition and growing their own food source
Volunteers help with planting vegetables; harvesting of vegetables; maintenance of gardens; assisting with nutrition workshops; and assisting with the development of eco-friendly greenhouses.
Provide members of the local community with an easily accesible service by offering a door to door TB screening service. Volunteers help by conducting a questionnaire in the township and hand out referral letters where required.
Help us ensure that our projects are focusing on areas in the community that matter most to the people who live there. Volunteers will use this survey to start a conversation with people about what changes they would like to see in their community.

, 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.
