You can chose to coach either football, rugby, tennis, netball, hockey, cricket, swimming (summers only) and ultimate frisbee. Teaching and orphanage work also available either full time, part time or as a taster day.
Volunteers receive a good orientation before starting work and then go into the townships on the charity's minibus to coach at the schools where many of the children are HIV/AIDs orphans and very vulnerable. Coaching takes place at three different schools a day, five days a week. The work is very rewarding but also heart breaking when you see so much disadvantage.
Sharing the volunteer house with 20 to 40 other volunteers means that the evenings and weekends are for having some fun. Some excursions included and others can be booked from the Volunteer House (safaris, sky diving, bungee jump, shark cage diving...)
