Contribute to improving the well-being of community OVC through increasing their access to food by establishing a productive vegetable gardens in Itereleng Informal Settlement. Volunteer Tasks: The work camp activities will be digging up and making food gardens for the local community. We will clear up marked arable land and plant food plants such as tomatoes, onions, carrots etc and be able to do such community gardens to disadvantaged members of the community such as orphans and old peoples’ homes. The work will be conducted in groups which will be given proper training from qualified people what we will expect from volunteers. Equipment and tools will be provided but we encourage volunteers to bring their own working gloves and comfortable working shoes for the work camp.
Accommodation will be in dorms at the project center and venue still to be confirmed. Participants will be required to bring their own sleeping bags. The accommodation has a simple bathroom with shower and there is running water. The accommodation and work place have flushing toilets and do have electricity but should expect normal power cuts lasting to 4 hours on various time slots in the week. (Not every day)
The community has multi-cultural people and English is mostly spoken with local languages such as Sotho, Zulu, and Tshwana to name a few. Extra info: The work camp participation fee is strictly Euro 200 and this covers simple accommodation, food and project expenses during the camp. Please note that this does not include travel expenses to and from the camp, so participants are asked to reserve a small amount of money for transport to the camp and vice-verse. We advise all volunteers to ask for advice from us when they are planning to book their ticket to Pretoria. Leisure Activities: Weekends are meant to be for free tours that the group can organize by themselves. All our work camps are reserved for cultural nights when each volunteer can present her/his country and culture. Requirements: Qualification of participants: – Open minded, ready to interact with other people of different cultural background – Positive attitude – Willing to share his/her experiences – Flexible to live/stay in simple living conditions – Flexible to eat local food – Ready to do heavy manual work on the project and No experience needed
