Nourish volunteer program

I really appreciated the Nourish volunteer program because it permited me to know another culture, to know the environment and the traditions of the inhabitants of the limpopo region.
I liked to spend time with the staff, all of them are nice. I also liked the variety of activities : you can work with kids, work at the farm, work at craft centre, work at the maintenance or at the recycling. I like that all of the activities contibute to respect and protect the environment.
I appreciated the differents activities that we did during the week-ends (hike on the blyde river canyon, game drive, bush walk)

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
I discovered the pap and chokolaka
I particularly appreciated the bobotie

Nourish (volunteer program)

Nourish is a nice program that permit you to encounter a lot of south african people to work and share with them.
You can do a lot of activities like work in the farm, in the creche, playing with all the kids, some maintenance staff or recycling work.
You are close to Kruger Park so you can visit it during the week-end. Also, you are at 30mn to Hoedspruit to make some shopping and buy snacks.
You can also visit the Blyde River Canyon to do a lot of nice hikes.
Enjoy your stay at Nourish with all the staff and the kids

Nourish eco-village

Such an amazing experience. I stayed for 4weeks and i would advice to stay at least 2/3 weeks to get a proper experience. The eco-village is doing so much to help the community. As a volunteer, the activities and programs are fun, diversified and useful : farming, craft center, crèche, library, maintenance, recycling center and so on. Last but not least the Nourish Team is wonderful, you get the chance to create real and strong relationships. During weekends you also get the chance to visit the area (Kruger Park, Blyde River Canyon). 10/10 on everything, i definitely recommend it!!

What was your funniest moment?
All the activities but more particularly the dances that we would do with the kids at the library!
