Aspect Africa enables community-based organizations around the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park in Southern Africa to find pathways to sustainable funding through the creation and development of volunteer solutions.
These programs are owned by local community-based organizations. We firmly believe in giving ownership to communities, providing viable economic income for cash-poor communities through the utilization of local host families, job creation by only hiring local, and practical skills development over time.
By joining Aspect Africa you will have a direct and long-lasting impact on the children and youth of communities in South Africa and Zimbabwe, rural, under-resourced communities that are under-serviced by national, provincial and local governments. Join us in the Heart of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, help organize cross-border tournaments, relax on the Limpopo river or in the Kruger National Park, and most of all, enjoy an in-depth cultural experience.
