HUMANITARIAN

Adventure Club Project – Cape Town

This project is a great way for the volunteers to gain experience working with children and groups, and learn new outdoor activities like surfing and skateboarding – volunteers receive lessons so they can help teach the children.

The project is run as a weekly curricular activity for disadvantaged youth from one of the local schools. Our main goal is to keep the children occupied and off the streets after school. Volunteers help us teach them valuable life lessons through adventure activities, teamwork, educational classes and sports such as skateboarding, swimming and surfing. For most of the children, this is the highlight of their day which is why we also use it as an incentive for them to do well in school, giving them a better chance at a brighter future. Those that turn up for school every day, behave themselves in class and study hard will rewarded by going skateboarding, swimming or surfing after school.

Sport & Youth Development Project

Children living in impoverished communities have a huge need for youth development projects which serve to teach them valuable life skills such as teamwork, structure, discipline and which uplifts their self-esteem through the realization of talent.

This project is for children from severely disadvantaged areas. Mornings are spent developing preschool-aged children as well as children who do not attend school. In the afternoons we do various sport projects with the children where we teach and play soccer, netball, cricket and other team sports which not only develops the children but is also a way for the children to be exposed to better role models and to be kept busy which serves an important role in lowering socio-economic problems which are often found in these settlements, such as teenage pregnancy, delinquency, petty crime, and which lowers their chances of getting involved in gangsterism and negative behavior.

SAVE is always in need of volunteers with special skills that they can transfer to our communities and allow them to become self-sufficient and productive members of society. Previous projects and ideas are below and not limited to:

Settlement Project

The main objective is the facilitation of poverty prevention programmes and upliftment in the settlements. Employment and education opportunities are provided where possible.

We try to assist the community through specific programs such as “Winter Hope” whereby we provide warm clothing and shoes to the children, blankets to families as well as obtaining building materials to fix leaking roofs and rebuild structures where necessary to try and provide some relief from the winter cold which can be freezing when your only shelter is a damp, leaking corrugated iron structure!Another regular program is to provide with, assist in or educate communities in agriculture projects such as subsistence farming. With this, we help start new vegetable gardens, work in existing vegetable gardens or educate about growing food for own use. This assists with food aid and poverty alleviation.

We engage these communities in regular education, motivation and social upliftment programmes and exciting events such as fun at the beach, various sporting activities and outings which are hosted throughout the year.

MARINE

Marine Research and Childcare

As a volunteer, on the Marine Research & Whale Shark Conservation Project, you will help carry out the Marine Research and monitoring activities for the project under the guidance of our coordinating project scientists.

You will join other volunteers on the project to collect the data via scuba dives, ocean safaris and beach walks off the coastline of Tofo in Mozambique. You can expect an excellent diving, snorkeling and beach experience whilst gaining first hand Marine Research skills and contributing to a worthwhile project.

As this is an Adventure Tour you will also get the opportunity to work with the children of Mozambique. Emerging from being one of the world’s poorest countries after decades of civil war, Mozambique’s children face many challenges, including lack of proper care and limited educational opportunities. Those that have lost their parents also struggle for adequate food and shelter and crave the love and attention that a healthy child needs. With high unemployment and limited state welfare, many of these children’s needs cannot be met without external support, therefore volunteer involvement is crucial. You will have the opportunity to work at a local orphanage, crèche and primary school in Inhambane and Tofo, where you may help with basic care and education, organizing games and activities, arranging food, assessing needs, developing life skills and more. Depending on the project needs at the time and your skills and interests, you may work at either one of these placements or a combination of a few.
