Volunteering in Pretoria – VIP project

Latest: read Mia’s report here.

SI Woking & District recently raised over £50 to help finance this project.


The Soroptimist clubs in Southern England have launched a joint project, made possible by their friendship links with clubs in South Africa: a 9-months internship/volunteering placement for an 18-25 year-old. This year, the chosen applicant will help to support Young Carers and Carer Grannies, be a classroom assistant in a primary school and contribute to a project to teach women new skills. This is a great opportunity for a young person to experience the vibrancy and beauty of South Africa, while acquiring new competencies that will be useful in a future career and learning about another culture.
