Meaningful experience in Cape Town

I had a great experience volunteering with African Impact in Cape Town. The program staff did a fantastic job of making me feel welcome, and engaging volunteers in meaningful projects. We were able to see how our volunteering fit into a bigger picture of community development. I enjoyed meeting volunteers from all over the world, and getting to volunteer in a meaningful and personalized way.

Amazing Volunteering Experience

I highly recommend volunteering with African Impact. My project, kids, staff, volunteers and the city were amazing. It was one of the best things that I have done in my life. I liked every moment I spent here.

Leaving my comfort zone

Outstanding experience for me. Loved working with the children and seeing how little it takes to excite them..
They were warm, loving and eager to learn.
As an older volunteer I did not expect to form such close relationships with the younger volunteers. However, they welcomed me and I was always invited to join in their outings. It has been so great meeting people from all over the world..

An amazing experience in Capetown

I was on the 30+ project for two weeks in Capetown. It was a great experience. I really felt i tribute to the projects. You can really make your own planning on the project. I never felt unsave for a minute.

Lori's review

Overall, I had a good experience. Support system was great. My personality is introverted so had difficulty adjusting to numbers of people in the house and teaching the preschoolers, but by the second week I felt more comfortable in both areas. Felt like I needed a little more direction in planning for projects having had no prior experience working with preschoolers.
