What the Mission Trip Will Be Like



The children at the child care center are aged between 1 to 6 years old and the children at our Surf school and children's home are ages 6-17 year old's. This Project gives you the opportunity to build rewarding relationships with the children whilst living with them, and to share God's love with them. The children's safe house aims at providing excellence in child care by working hand in hand with the community and all those who are willing to offer their time and help. The child care center in the township is short staffed due to the large volume of children in need. You will experience the satisfaction of watching these children progress and develop whilst assisting in teaching the children with new skills. Your role as volunteer is very important in changing and shaping these children’s lives, and consequently the lives of future generations in South Africa. Most of The children can speak English, so the children will be able to understand you. The children's home language is English, Afrikaans and Xhosa.

When Joining our Location in Cape town, we ask for you to let us know your talents, so you can help with what you are Good at.

Here are some of our projects and what the children need help with:

*Child care Projects

*Music and Evangelism and Preaching to the children at the surf school and child care Centre.

*Assisting children after school with their home work – Reading, Maths, bible study and science assistance needed.

*Surfing Project – Learn to surf with your free surfing lesson, equipment is also available for your use.

*Church on Sundays (We all attend Victory Church in Fish hoek).

*Arts, Music and Drama at the child care Centre

Please do let us know before arrival or when you arrive, what you expect from your time here with us, and what your talents are. Its in our best interest for you to have the best time whilst you are with us and we want you to feel like your time has impacted many Less Privileged people whilst you are with us.

We also Encourage you as a Volunteer to bring your talents and use them at the child care Centre to help others. Our team greatly looks forward to working with you and we are sure that you will leave here with a whole new Family and Church Family in South Africa.

We believe that education is the only ticket out of poverty and community transformation.
