Description
African Samaritans wants to make a tangible difference through the means of voluntourism, by bringing those with a heart to serve God’s people to the Midlands of Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. Ultimately impacting on the impoverished community far beyond the life of the placements and far beyond just feeding the community for a day, but also that the engagement allows volunteers to leave, being touched by Africa’s Ubuntu.

African Samaritans has various projects on offer for international volunteers to select the most suited area in which you want to contribute. You will be living comfortably in a guest lodge setting while volunteering and enjoy two nourishing meals per day in a buffet restaurant environment which is situated on the grounds where you live. Our packages incorporate tourism into your volunteering mission, where you will have the opportunity to explore the breath-taking Midlands area and other experiences in the natural paradise of Kwazulu-Natal.

Our projects vary, but if you have skills that you can use in any of the following areas, you will be suited for one or more of our projects:
LIFE SKILLS TUITION
CONSTRUCTION
MEDIA
MATHS
SCIENCE
THEOLOGY
MINISTRY
SOCIAL WORK
ENTREPRENEURSHIP
DANCE

ZIP LINE TOURS

On application you will have several options to choose from when it comes to where you want to volunteer and what you as a tourist want to experience on your rest days. We offer discounts on group entries as well, so please feel free to enquire more on the discounts. African Samaritans has the ability to tailor-make your experience to what you want out of your time in South Africa while volunteering. We also strive to ensure that the local communities will continue building on what you left behind because the volunteer work is always done with an aim to pass the skill, more than just to "do it" for the community.
