Volunteering in Pretoria – VIP project


The Soroptimist clubs in Southern England have launched a joint project to offer a 6-months internship/volunteering placement for an 18-25 year-old.  Our Friendship Links in South Africa are leading this project and will select an applicant from their local areas. The chosen applicant will be a classroom assistant in a primary school and contribute to a project to teach women new skills in a women’s centre. This is a great opportunity for a young person to acquire new competencies that will be useful in a future career in a different environment. We are pleased to be one of the Clubs in Soroptimist International Southern Region offering financial support to this project.
