Cape Town

In brief

Cape Town is one of the most unique, most beautiful and most extraordinary cities in the world. Good Hope Volunteers allows you to enjoy all the city has to offer while, simultaneously, using your time in a special way and making a lasting impact on the live of others. Our projects include experiences volunteering with children and/or the elderly. You could teach children who need more help in schools or work with vulnerable children with special needs. Or choose a unique environmental project which allows you to get the best of both worlds and volunteer in an educational conservation initiative set in the heart of the city.

Encourage communities secure a better future through education, health and economic development. 

Help providing a Safe Haven for vulnerable, abandoned and abused children. 

Encourage sustainable farming, education and health promotion in terms of food production and purchasing.

“I chose to participate in projects in Cape Town, South Africa due to it being a multicultural society, a nice city with great people. I loved the interaction with the kids and the teachers at my volunteer project, and believe my volunteer projects make a positive impact by uplifting the community and helping kids who need it most. I would advise other volunteers to be patient and remember why you are there, its for the kids, not for you. One of my best memories at the projects were the happiness in the kids faces when I brought cookies and muffins”.
