Volunteer Africa 32 Degrees South (VA32)
South Africa
Volunteer Africa 32 Degrees South (VA32) is a grass-roots organisation based in Chintsa at the gateway to the Wild Coast of South Africa. The Eastern Cape of South Africa is historically the least developed region of this developing country with poor access to decent education and health services. VA32 host volunteers on a range of programs which tackle social, education and conservation issues in the wider Chintsa area. Our flagship project - the Wild Coast Schools Project - is the first volunteer program in the world to be Fair Trade Tourism certified, it was also nominated as one of the top 5 volunteer programs at the Global Youth Travel Awards in 2014. On this program volunteers are based in understaffed and under-resourced rural schools where they deliver computer literacy lessons to learners from grades R - 7. Afternoons are spent facilitating community development initiatives such as youth sports development, extra curricular drama club and a weekly visit to a local children's home of safety.

Based in the beach town of Chintsa, volunteers stay in the VA32 volunteer house which is minutes walk from the beach. The house is fully serviced and catered by house manager Nomakwezi. Rooms are shared with between 2 - 8 volunteers.

VA32 recently partnered with Naturally Africa Volunteers (NAV) extending our portfolio of projects. NAV projects are based in the Mangochi District of Malawi, at the Southern-most tip of Lake Malawi. This area of Malawi is extremely under-privileged with lack of access to education and health services. Our projects address local issues by placing volunteers in schools, child care centres, hospitals and community centres to share skills, support local staff and assist in facilitating long term initiatives.

Volunteers on all projects are supported by experienced project staff who are on call 24/7.

VA32 hosts volunteers on the following programs:

- Wild Coast Schools
- Community Pre-schools
- African Angels Independent School
- Malawi Teaching Project
- Malawi Teaching & Sports Project
- Malawi Childcare Project

- The African Pre-vet Experience

- Malawi Medical Project
