AMAPONDO CHILDREN’S PROJECT
Started in 2001 and registered as an NPO in 2006, Amapondo Children's Project is diverse and ever growing. We are situated in the heartland of the former Transkei area of South Africa, a stunningly beautiful natural environment instilled with local vibrancy. Our philosophy is to recognise the capacity around us and facilitate through community led initiatives employment, empowerment and exchange.
We are currently involved in a range of initiatives aiming to address unemployment issues, child protection threats, educational needs and animal welfare all through creative community led projects. We involve both national and international volunteers, encouraging growth through cultural exchange.
We are open to volunteers and community members designing their own programs which we work alongside to ensure their sustainability. We do also have areas always needing extra hands, so let us know your skills and areas of interest, and we can see where you would fit in. We do not currently have a minimum stay as it depends on the usefulness and relevance of the skills available and will be considered on a case by case basis.
