with the Children of J-Bay
Are you looking
for an opportunity to make a difference in Africa? Are
you a self-motivated worker with a heart for kids age
6-18? Then volunteer to help The Joshua Project brighten
the lives of J-Bay's underpriviledged children.
Volunteer in Jeffreys Bay?
a real difference!
Your volunteering will help bring happiness, self-respect
and joy to the children in the program, something
which many of us take for granted, yet something
these amazing kids are really in need of. The Eastern
Cape is the poorest region of South Africa, and
help from overseas is vital to uplift its people.
All money goes DIRECTLY to the project!
Ubuntu Volunteers is a different kind of volunteer
program. Firstly, it is a fraction of the cost of
many other volunteer initiatives, with 50%
of money from volunteers going directly to assist
the Joshua Project in bettering
its program. Money could be used to buy art materials,
sports equipment, help with the food kitchen etc.
You as the volunteer will be able to have a say
where your contribution is used. This is unique
to Ubuntu Volunteers, as we take ZERO commission
for facilitating the program..
Lots of Free Time!
Its not all work and no play! You will be expected
to work 5 hrs a day, 5 days a week. The rest of
the time is free for you to surf the world-famous
waves, play with lions at the nearby sanctuary,
take in the town, relax or do whatever you like!
Its about having a good time in a new country, and
making a difference.
The Ubuntu staff arrange a fun trip every weekend
to take in the many interesting places in our area.
Lion Cub Sanctuary, Walking with Elephants, Sand-boarding,
Surf Lessons, Bungy Jumping and much more!
Meet interesting people at Ubuntu!
Your accommodation during your trip will be at Ubuntu
Lodge, where you will get to meet other cool
people travelling through J-Bay.
You will be working with children aged 4-16, helping
the Joshua Project team with art classes, the sports
and fitness program, the shelter's food hall as
well as other areas where your help may be needed.
These could be assisting with admin, keeping the
centre tidy etc.
At Ubuntu Lodge you have the choice of either shared
(dorm) rooms or private rooms. The guesthouse is
ideally situated overlooking the beach, and all
necessary shops and supermarkets are a 2 minute
walk away. There is a big self-catering kitchen
for you to prepare your own food, or you can sample
the tasty delights of Ubuntu's hearty African dinners($7).
You will also receive your own bicycle to whizz
around town and to and fro from the Joshua Project.
This is a self-catering option to give the lowest
possible price, with full kitchen facilities and
several supermarkets in walking distance. Evening
meals are often available from the Ubuntu Kitchen
during Peak Season. Free Breakfast daily.
