Do you have a passion for teaching and working with children?

This program plays an essential role in improving the education of at-risk children in Cape Town. These children come from impoverished backgrounds, with many experiencing social and health issues. The schools are very under resourced, and lack teachers and basic supplies, books and equipment.

Volunteers play a fundamental role in helping these children achieve a better education through their support. Volunteers may choose to assist in primary schools located throughout Cape Town, with most volunteers choosing to work within the most impoverished communities, knowing that this is where they can make the most difference to the lives of vulnerable children.

Through donating their time, international volunteers are supporting children and youth who need a solid education to give them a chance at escaping the poverty cycle. Volunteers care, educational support and attention can give these children a fighting chance towards a brighter future.


Goals of this Project:

  • Provide a quality education to underprivileged children in Cape Town
  • Improve the future prospects of at risk children and youth through an enhanced educational experience
  • Boost the confidence and aspirations of marginalized children
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.


Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help create a brighter future for children through the power of education. This project best suits those with experience and/or qualifications in the field of childhood development and education, though volunteers who simply wish to explore an interest in this field are also welcomed as there are many ways you can assist in the classroom. Whist not mandatory, completing a TEFL course prior to joining this project would prove to be highly beneficial. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite as English is widely spoken. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:
