Community Welfare for Children Project

Program Description

This multi-faceted program in Sir Lowry's Pass Village is an exciting opportunity for volunteers to lend a helping hand at one of the Cape's most renowned child welfare institutions. With a children's village (accommodation facilities), pre-school and primary school, the program aims to empower disadvantaged children through education. It was founded in 2004 to tackle local issues like unemployment, crime and HIV.

- Assist teachers with pre-school lessons
- Help the children with their homework
