Volunteering in South Africa, Namibia & Botswana

Volunteers leave their foot print in southern Africa, not only by dedicating their time and energy to their chosen project but also through the positive contribution they make to southern African society by their presence and the activities they participate in while they are here. 

Good Hope Studies can help you discover an incredible part of the world and its people through its volunteering programmes providing you with a diverse and varied experience, giving you insight into the lives, history and culture of the local people. 

Volunteering can be hard work at times, but it’s more rewarding than anything else. You will learn so many new skills, make new friends and have an impact on the lives of others.

Would you like to combine your volunteering experience with an English language course at our English language school?

Our Volunteer Projects

There are almost 40 volunteer projects to choose from. We have categorised them into social and conservation volunteering, medical volunteering, farm stays and voluntourism.

Social volunteering allows you to work with children, elderly people or to assist entire communities. Conservation volunteering puts you in touch with animals or allows you to work in nature conservation. Book a farm stay to learn how to grow organic vegetables. And under voluntourism, you can find projects which allow you to learn about nature or communities, but they include lots of fun and action too.
