Adventure in Cape Town

Project Overview

This particular programme is designed to educate children on South Africa’s streets by teaching them new skills.  The youngsters, who are from disadvantaged areas of Cape Town, are taught team-work and other life skills via sport and out of school adventure activities – as well as general lessons.

The Cape Town Adventure Club offers a range of activities, including swimming, surfing and hiking to children between the ages of 12 and 14. Project volunteers will themselves learn to surf in order to be able to teach the children likewise.

The youngsters reside in Cape Town townships such as Dunoon and Site 5 where there are few, if any, suitable sporting and educational facilities. As a result you’ll find that each week groups of five to 20 enthusiastic children enjoy taking part in the Cape Town Adventure Club project.

South Africa’s Western Cape, where this programme is based, is very culturally diverse. Contrast the very wealthy and extremely poor individuals living side by side. The main ethnic groups volunteers work with are English or Afrikaans South Africans. Most of the children speak both language so are easy to communicate with.

Volunteers will themselves gain valuable skills in childcare during this gap volunteer  experience in Cape Town. They will become especially proficient at dealing with children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The programme itself runs for three to five days a week, beginning when the children come home from school.

While the children are in school gap volunteers assist local schools and education centres in computer and maths lessons.
