SAVE is a registered non-profit organization (NPO) that assists communities in Cape Town. Our work involves helping other non-profit organizations that are actively involved in communities by providing them with volunteers, assistance with building projects and funding raised by volunteers.
International and local volunteers can get involved in our programs.
Children from disadvantaged areas who would ordinarily spend their free time on the streets are taught valuable life lessons during extramural activities like sports, adventure activities, team work and educational classes.
Volunteers work alongside non profit organisations – helping with feeding, educating and playing with disadvantaged children in the settlements. Volunteers with skills are welcome to run their own educational programs.
Combine independent travel with volunteering in different locations in South Africa, with volunteering opportunities in either community development or conservation. Tour the country between projects on the Baz Bus backpackers bus service.
Youths in townships in South Africa have little opportunity to develop skills. Volunteers with qualifications or relevant experience work with schools and NPO’s to transfer their skills to children in settlements.
Many schools in disadvantaged communities have limited finances, few teachers and overcrowded classrooms. Volunteers help ensure that children get adequate attention by working as teachers’ assistants in schools or as facilitators in educare classes.
Volunteers teach underprivileged kids to swim, kitesurf and enjoy the sea! The volunteer and kids both receive kitesurfing lessons from a certified instructor. Once the volunteer has completed the course, he or she can mentor the children further in swimming, beach kite flying or kitesurfing.
