Do you have a passion for helping underprivileged children in Africa to make a difference in their lives? Do you ever dream of touring South Africa and learn the diverse culture and expansive history? Many low income families in South Africa are caught find it difficult to earn income to support their families because they have to stay at home to take care of their children. They are unable to afford daycare services and there are limited facilities provided by the government to support the parents. Many parents have to leave their children alone as they go for work. This leaves the children vulnerable and they are also devoid of parental love and care needed in their childhood.

In this program, you will work in a childcare center and help take care of the children. You will assist the local staffs with teaching lessons, preparing meals, feeding the children, cleaning and supervising children. You will also help organize events, plan games and extra-curricular activities like dance, singing, art and crafts etc. You will also teach the children about hygiene and provide them with love and motivation. Your efforts will have a positive impact on the children as well as their families. The children will be able to thrive in safe and happy environment and the parents can go to work knowing their children are in good hands. By helping the children, you will enable them to have a positive future that will in turn help strengthen the local communities. You will also gain a meaningful experience in the field of childcare and gain lifelong memories with the children.

    Thanks- I will be back again

    I would like to thank you and your organization for the planning and execution of my stay in Cape Town. The three weeks have been exceptional. This is one of the best ways to experience the lower ends of life and share compassion with those in need. This adventure was well balanced as it provides a chance to help those less fortunate as well as explore Cape Town as a tourist. This balance provides a great time. The staff at Global Crossroad were very helpful with everything except more guidance to what you must do with the children and the school will be helpful. In all honesty this experience has changed me and my perspective about the things that us privileged take for granted. I would recommend Global Crossroad to anyone willing to have a great working experience with children as well as a holiday. Thank you again for organizing this for me.
