Since 2010, we have been sponsoring children to study at Westerford High School, one of the most highly-regarded public high schools in Cape Town.
Each Westerford student that we sponsor is one more citizen with better access to education and thus, better future opportunities than before.
We also support the community organisation in Mitchell’s Plain and their Soup Kitchen.
It is a hands-on experience where students and volunteers would attend and assist with dishing food for this previously disadvantaged community. Good Hope Volunteers provides the transport free of charge and the funds collected goes to the Soup Kitchen to buy food and provisions to sustain the foundation.
Afterwards, there is time for fun activities such as interacting with the kids, playing soccer, doing hair and nails with the girls and just taking your time for giving something back to the community.
What you can do
You come to Cape Town to volunteer (or to improve your English language skills) and to experience Cape Town and South Africa. We provide you with opportunities not only to see the beauty of the city, but also to get to know disadvantaged communities. For instance we regularly provide guided township tours.
If you have the feeling that you would like to help the poor communities we offer the following opportunities:
- Attend one of our volunteer programmes in the Cape Town area.
- Participate in the Soup Kitchen.
- Make a financial contribution towards our scholarship programme or towards the Soup Kitchen.
- Assist us with projects we organise from time to time like providing food tents, preparing Christmas parcels, etc.
