Your Helping Hands
We have spent time at the volunteer projects and placements which Road Trippers take part in along the way. Over the 2 week road trip, you will work alongside your fellow volunteers to get involved in a combination of community work including games and activities at a Children's Home, feeding and managing stray dogs, taking part in support groups, agricultural work, fun and games in children's nurseries. Spending time at small community run projects enables you to really discover some of South Africa's cultures. The majority of our community partners run small independent projects that often receive no other support. Global Handprints has established partnerships with these projects through exploring the area and making friendships. We strongly believe that volunteer work should be done at projects that welcome volunteer's input with open arms while at the same time maintaining ownership over the project or idea themselves. We often work with our partners to develop specific Global Handprints projects that meet community needs and ensure the wellbeing of community members.
