Volunteer to help children in South Africa

Our Build4TheFuture programme focuses on providing homes and shelter for child-headed families in the KwaZulu-Natal region of South Africa during a 17-day trip.

An urgent need

What do we mean by ‘child-headed family’? These are families where orphans live on their own, lacking the love, guidance and support of parents.

In this region, there are an estimated 9,000 to 15,000 orphans. Many have lost their parents to AIDS or related illnesses, and more recently, their grandparents to COVID-19. For safety, these children often live in groups – it’s not unusual to find 20 children living in a single house.

Be the change

Here’s where you can truly make a difference. Over the past 14 years, we’ve brought hundreds of volunteers to build 80 homes for over 400 orphans.

If you’ve ever dreamed of helping children in a poverty-stricken country, now is the time to act. Our volunteers say that working with the Foundation is a life-changing experience.
