Teach sports or renovate school buildings

philanthropic travel

We have started a sports programme in this school that had no-one to coach sports nor any sports equipment. The teachers are very excited about this project and so are we. You can coach to assist with netball and rugby, or help convert the playing area into netball court. If sports aren’t your thing, you can help fix a leaking roof, a dilapidated ceiling, tile, fix gutters, or paint inside the classrooms. Whatever you choose will make a lasting difference. 

Accommodation in Eastern Cape

Eastern Cape

South Africa’s ‘wild’ province, the Eastern Cape features expanses of untouched beach, bush and forest. This was Nelson Mandela’s home province, and is an area with some enticing attractions – among them the Addo Elephant National Park, with the densest elephant population in the world; the dramatic Wild Coast; and, of course, Mandela’s home at Qunu.

There are some spectacular private game reserves here, including Kwandwe, Shamwari and River Bend (on a private part of Addo).
