Work with vulnerable children living in a orphanage in Ugu district. High HIV levels has resulted in large numbers of children in South Africa being orphaned and vulnerable, with either one or both parents lost to the disease. Participation in this project includes play, learning, teaching, and helping with much required infrastructure projects. Volunteers are based at a large residential children's home in Ugu district of KwaZulu-Natal Province. During the day time volunteers complete practical activities and also work in the on-site school and nursery. There are many opportunities to help with extra-mural activities, reading, playing and sports with the children. The orphanage has around 80 children living in household units with house mothers, and there are many opportunities to help out and make a difference in the lives of these children.

Ugu district is located in KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa. It is beautiful and varied, with the Indian Ocean and inland mountain sites. Ugu is home to the famous Oribi Gorge, which offers the highest bungee swing in South Africa. The Indian ocean is perfect for surfing, diving and snorkelling. Close by is the world class city of Durban, with its colourful Indian and African cultures, the Drakensberg mountains, Lesotho, and the Big 5 game reserves on the North Coast of the Province. Spend your weekends travelling the province or venture further afield into Mozambique, Swaziland or the Kingdom of Lesotho
