You and your group will have a unforgettable trip to Guatemala by taking part in a successful after-school program that helps to improve the lives of children who live just outside the beautiful colonial town of Antigua. Making lasting friendships and living with a local family adds to the unforgettable experience.
If you want to work with children and have a knack for storytelling, organising rounders' tournaments or bashing out questioning tunes on the recorder, then listen up! Based in a township in the Table Mountains, you'll care for infants and children in local day care centres. From new borns to teenagers, you'll be providing an invaluable service for those abandoned by their families or rescued from abusive homes. You'll help create a caring environment for them, assisting teachers and developing their creative skills through painting, colouring in and playing games. There's even spare time to make the most of Cape Town's outstanding beauty.
New Hope Cambodia is based in one of the poorest slum areas on the outskirts of Siem Reap. This project aims to restore home and dignity to these once proud and prosperous communities by providing free education, healthcare and vocational training. Project hours will vary from half to full days, where you'll support Khmer teachers to assist with English, maths, sewing, and computer lessons.
