What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Mandy founded the project in 2007

Further Information:


The Project is based in Muizenberg, only 30 minutes from Cape Town City Centre. Muizenberg beach is one of Cape Town’s most magnificent, Pristine white beaches, and is renowned for the most consistent waves in Cape Town. The Project is based next to the beach in a Large Surf Outreach Building, this building is fully equipped to cater for all the children’s needs: Surfing, Soccer, Education, African Drumming, Library, Literacy and Sports Gear. We are based in the Muizenberg Sea side Village close to: shops and internet access (free wi-fire). We teach Surfing and Educational Programs to Many Less Privileged children from Capricorn Township who come to the Project from just 15 minutes away from Muizenberg. These children have a great need for one on one attention. They come from very less Privileged back grounds. Some of the Children are Orphans and others live with their relatives. Our aim is to add HOPE AND LOVE into their lives. We aim to Improve the Children’s Education levels at School through creating a sports platform for the children to attend in the afternoons (once they have completed their Home work at our Centre).


The children we teach are aged between 6-16 years old. The Project runs from Monday to Friday from 11:00 am – 5.00 pm. (You will have weekends free to explore). The Surfing Project gives you the opportunity to build rewarding relationships with the children. The children can speak English although their home language is Afrikaans or Xhosa. Volunteer’s mornings are spent learning to Surf or Teaching Surfing lessons to the children alongside the coordinator. In the afternoons we need help with assisting the children the following:
Assisting with teaching Surfing and swimming lessons to the children (You will also get to learn to Surf in the Mornings).
Assisting the children with reading and their Home work
Soccer program on the beach after Surfing
You are most welcome to do bible study with the children and Pray with them
Teaching the children African Drumming (and learning yourself).
Assisting with Making sandwiches for the children.
Projects will vary based on your skills and interests and the present needs of the program co-ordinator at the time.
Your role as volunteer is very important in changing and shaping these children’s lives. This project is loads of fun and your efforts will be greatly appreciated. Any old clothes, shoes and blankets are a welcome donation to the community. They are always in need of these.
