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.

Improve the quality of life of children facing life-threatening diseases or recovering in hospital.

Encourage and support children, parents and communities secure a better future through education.

Share your time and energy, and leave a lasting impact on the life of a child.

My experience volunteering in the children’s hospital was amazing! I’ve learnt a lot from these kids and their parents. We played lots of games like puzzles, cards and even bowling. It was very rewarding to stay close to these children and to put a smile on their faces. A life changing experience!
