As we are a registered section 18A organisation, financial contributions are tax deductible in South-Africa (not exceeding 10% of taxable income, before any deduction for medical and dental expenses).
Once we’ve received your donation we will send you a confirmation showing the amount donated along with our registration numbers.
72% our budget is invested directly in our learners’ education. That means that most of your money helps us pay for teachers, teaching assistants, learning materials, educational excursions and daily school meals.
We would not be able to run such successful programmes without the help of our enthusiastic volunteers.
If you would like to offer your time and skills then have a look at the list of opportunities below, complete the applicable form and return it via email. We accept both South African and international volunteers. Feel free to contact us for more information.
The crèche is a day-care center for preschool age children. Volunteers are needed to care for and entertain these toddlers. The crèche operates Monday through Friday from 7:30 am until 3:30 pm (15:30). Volunteers interested in working in the crèche should be able to commit to working everyday for at least one month. This is due to the relationships that are built with the children.
The aftercare programme is an after school programme for primary school children. Volunteers are needed to care for and entertain these children, sometimes helping with homework. Aftercare operates Monday through Friday from 3pm (15:00) until 5pm (17:00). Volunteers interested in working in aftercare should be able to commit to working everyday for at least one month. This is due to the relationships that are built with the children.
Students of all ages need help with their homework after school, and come to the office for assistance. Volunteers are needed to help with homework and to tutor students who are struggling in school. Tutoring happens Monday through Friday from 3pm (15:00) until 7pm(19:00). Volunteers interested in tutoring can commit to any length of time, but should please inform Vision Afrika of the days and times they plan to attend. (Math and science tutors are particularly needed!)
Co-facilitators and small-group leaders are needed to assist during sessions with the Vision AfriKa students. Sessions cover topics including (but not limited to) life skills, teamwork, human rights, community involvement, CV-writing, university applications, entrepreneurship, etc. Interested volunteers should contact Vision AfriKa with their interests and experience. Volunteers should be available to participate for at least three months due to the importance of relationship-building.
Various types of administrative support are needed. Anyone skilled in IT, human resources management, program evaluation, or business would be highly useful. Volunteers able to proofread reports in English are also very valuable. Vision AfriKa is also interested in volunteers with experience in curriculum development or staff training. Anyone with these skills would be welcome for any length of time, but are requested to advise Vision AfriKa of their intended schedule.
The volunteer coordinator will be in charge of welcoming and training other volunteers, recruiting future volunteers, updating volunteer material, and posting on relevant social media sites. Interested volunteers should be able to commit to working for at least 5-10 hours a week for at least six months.
Volunteers with a special skill they would like to share with youth are welcome to approach us with suggestions. Anyone interested in teaching music, sports, dance, yoga, art, etc. to a small group would be appreciated. The time of commitment is flexible, but interested volunteers should advise Vision AfriKa of their plans at least two months in advance of leading the class.
