AFRICAN IMPACT

Description

As GoAbroad's Top Rated Volunteer Abroad Organization in 2016, African Impact is now a multi-award winning volunteer travel organization that is operating responsible and sustainable volunteer projects and internship programs throughout Southern and East Africa. We have over 16 years’ experience and have facilitated over 12,000 volunteers in 12 countries across the continent!

OUR VISION:

To maximise the positive force of volunteering and make sure our volunteers have a fun and rewarding adventure with us. We truly believe that volunteering has the power to change lives; we’ve seen it first-hand.
We aiming to integrate ourselves into the community from grassroots to partnerships with local governments and strive to nurture a culture of mutual respect.

Our volunteer experiences are based on three key things:

- We want our volunteers to have an amazing time experiencing everything Africa has to offer and leave knowing they’ve contributed to something bigger than themselves.

- We want our volunteers to learn as much as they can about local history, culture and wildlife

- We want to support local communities and conservation efforts through education and hands-on help.


Our Charity: The Happy Africa Foundation

As part of our commitment to making a positive impact, we set up The Happy Africa Foundation in 2008. The charity helps to independently monitor our projects and provides tools and expertise that help to ensure our sustainability. The charity also ensures that donations given by our volunteers are managed responsibly.


Our Wildlife Trust: ALERT

African Impact were also instrumental in the establishment of the African Lion and Environmental Research Trust (ALERT) in 2005, a non-profit organization dedicated to the facilitation and promotion of sound conservation and management plans for the African lion in consultation with governments, wildlife authorities and communities.

Alongside African Impact, ALERT also aims to support the ground-breaking four-stage African Lion Rehabilitation and Release into the Wild Program developed by our founders in 1999.


Our Projects

To ensure the sustainability of our projects, we thoroughly evaluate each potential project with a detailed scorecard before setting up a volunteering program. This involves analysing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of a project as well as its long-term viability and impact. Also, every single one of our projects has community stakeholders. We won’t run a project unless the community not only wants us there, but actually has ownership of the project. Community buy-in is essential.

We have a core emphasis on learning and empowerment for all involved – changing the lives of people in the communities we impact, our volunteers and all African Impact staff.

UNA EXCHANGE

Description

UNA Exchange is a registered charity. We send volunteers overseas to work on community based projects in over 60 countries worldwide.

Longer-term individual placements of up to a year are also available in Europe, through the fully-funded EVS (European Voluntary Service) programme. International volunteer projects are organised all year round, but the majority run during the summer months. The work involved varies widely, depending on the project, but does not usually require specific skills or qualifications. In addition to our overseas programme we also organise projects in Wales, and there are opportunities for people interested in leading projects, becoming volunteer trainers, taking part in fundraising and promotional activities or volunteering in our offices.

About Us:

Volunteer in South Africa was founded by Mandy Ann Weschta in 2007. A Boy by the name of Jason, Came running past Mandy’s House and Stole her Cell phone from her staircase whilst she was washing her car.

The neighbours next to Mandy’s house saw the little boy stealing her phone and they got in the car to go and drive after the boy. They also called the police. The police happened to be in the area and the police car and the neighbour both found the boy in an alley way near to Mandy’s house. They took the boy back to the house with Mandy’s Phone.

Mandy asked the police what they were going to do with the boy now that he had stolen her phone. The police said they were going to have to punish the boy (because he was under the age to go to jail). At that moment Mandy remembered the verse: LUKE 4:18, The spirit of The Lord is on me because he has anointed me to preach the Good news the Poor. The police were just about to drive off with the little boy Jason. Mandy ran after them and asked them to stop the car and let the boy out the police van. I told the police that I would take care of the Boy (Jason). Mandy had a one on one chat with the Boy Jason and I told him that he had made a mistake by stealing her cell phone and even although he had stolen her cell phone she forgave him and Jesus forgive him. Mandy told him it was not the right thing to do and God Gets very sad when we steal. Mandy told the boy how much God loved him and how much God wants the best for him. She also told him that when he feels alone, then God is watching him and comforting him in those times.

That day, Mandy decided to take Jason Surfing. Jason ended up being a Great surfer. He was not attending school at the time, so Mandy told him that if he went back to school then he would be able to surf every-day. Jason loved this idea and started going back to school. The following week he brought 30 of his Street friends to come and surf. This is when Mandy saw a Great Potential to change the Community.

Mandy then made a rule that if they went to school every-day then she would collect them from school (after school) and teach 3 of them to surf a day. This is when Volunteer in South Africa was Launched. At that time Mandy owned a Surf lodge in Muizenberg (called abreakaway) she then decided to change her surf lodge into a Volunteer house. (To impact the community and add HOPE into many less Privileged children’s lives).

Since then Volunteer in South Africa has grown to 7 locations (with more to come) and SUPERSPORT has sponsored the sports Groups with Sports Gear. Mandy has come along side many more Sports Projects providing them with Volunteers and finances to run their projects.

Mandy says ‘My aim was to impact the less Privileged children’s lives in South Africa and Africa at Large’ I always have had a heart to reach out to the people in need and add HOPE into their lives. It’s so good to see that God has used me to reach out to many areas in South Africa and Africa, God is using me as a tool to Impact many less Privileged People’s lives throughout Africa now.

Since I started teaching the street children Surfing in 2007 we have seen many children going back to school and becoming some-thing in this LIFE. We have also built an Orphan school in the township, waterproofed many people’s homes from the bad weather, we have partnered with many projects that need help and support and since I started Volunteer in South Africa over 2500 children and Youth and adults have come to the Lord and are attending church in their local area.

We have taught 1200 children to surf and 300 boys to play soccer and 600 children how to swim so far. We have helped many people with food by going house to house in the townships (slums): offering food to people and Counselling to them. I am so blessed to be able to reach out to the less Privileged people of Africa and South Africa and add HOPE into their lives.

Thank-you to the people that have believed in me and supported me to do God’s work. We are a faith based Organisation, so whatever God brings is what we use to keep the projects maintained and Running. If you decide to sponsor a child to go to school then the cost is +-$150 a year for their uniform and shoes and books and school fees. We will then keep you updated on the child progress. If you decide to sponsor feeding a family (that has no food) then the cost is +-$40 a month. Any donations you can make to help the less Privileged will help. When making a payment through PayPal or into our Bank account, then you can let us know how you would like us to keep in touch with you. We will then let you know what your donation has been used for. All and any donations are much appreciated by the less Privileged people.

BMS World Mission works in partnership with Baptist churches and other Christian organisations in approximately 30 countries across four continents - Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. As a leading Christian mission organisation, BMS World Mission aims to share life in all its fullness with the worlds people by:

1) Enabling them to know Christ.

2) Alleviating suffering and injustice.

3) Improving the quality of life, with many people as our primary agent of change - motivating, training, sending and resourcing them.

We have around 200 mission workers engaged in pastoral and church planting work, engineering, teaching, agriculture, community and medical work etc, and then we also send short-term volunteers each year. BMS Action Teams (gap year) are designed specifically for young people between the ages of 18-23 and run from September to June. The programme starts with a month of quality mission training, followed by a six-month overseas placement working alongside BMS mission staff or a local partner church. On return to the UK, teams head out on a two-month tour of Baptist churches, sharing their experiences and encouraging other people to get involved in world mission.

The BMS Volunteer Programme is specifically designed for people who want to share their professional skills and experience to demonstrate Christ's love in another culture. Spending between three months and two years overseas enables you to impact on the lives of those in need in a meaningful way. We aim to match your expertise (technical and non-technical) with the needs of BMS personnel or partner organisations, so that the placement provides help where it is really needed and is a truly fulfilling experience. You may think that your particular expertise could never be used in short-term mission, but your skill could be the very one our overseas partners are looking for. There is no typical volunteer - we have individuals and couples from all walks of life serving on the volunteer programme. Applicants need to be over 21 years for this programme and we can accept people up to their mid-seventies as long as they can obtain health clearance.

Description

ALL OUT AFRICA's mission is to engage people from around the world in the research and action necessary for a sustainable Africa. We run projects that conserve biodiversity and improve human wellbeing and support the projects through offering people the opportunity to participate in the projects as a rewarding travel experience. Our conservation projects tackle both ecosystem and species level conservation issues within National Parks, Nature Reserves and areas of important biodiversity in Africa. Our social projects focus on orphans and vulnerable children and involve mostly education with aspects of health and nutrition and other basic needs. Both our conservation and social projects include hands-on action and research. Our conservation projects involve a variety of research and conservation activities in Swaziland and Mozambique. Depending on the time of the year, you can be involved in a number of different studies. Recent projects have focused on threatened plants, big game, bats, reptiles, endangered birds such as blue swallows, vultures and marabou storks. The marine conservation project focuses on Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, dolphins, turtles coral reefs and much more. Learn essential skills such as capturing, banding and radio-tracking and help to conserve Africa’s endangered wildlife. Our community projects works with schools and a number of small care centres and non-profit organizations that are assisting orphans and vulnerable children. You can help to improve the quality of life and future prospects in different ways by constructing basic shelters, water systems, developing trench gardens, and giving children basic education in English, maths and essential life skills. We believe that this is a very rewarding social experience helping children in need of support both for our volunteers and the children themselves.

VOLUNTEER VACATIONS

Description

Voluntary teaching and sports coaching placements in South Africa, Swaziland, India, Bali, Thailand, Ecuador and The Galapagos. Will appeal to all overseas volunteers, adults and students, who are genuinely interested in actively making a difference in some of the most impoverished areas of the world.

Sports coaching placements such as our unique project in Port Elizabeth, South Africa are ideal for gap year travel, university students, and for career breaks. If sports are not your thing, you could also help out in our South African schools on a standard teaching placement (primary or secondary) or care placement in an orphanage, giving much-needed love to some of the most disadvantaged children.

A village primary school and boys' orphanage in the hills surrounding Udaipur in Rajasthan are the locations of our Northern India projects. Here volunteers teach English, Maths, arts and sports to a generation of children who are first in their families to access formal schooling - an amazing opportunity to work with families living far below the poverty line.

Other projects include Construction and Renovation (Udaipur) in July every year and Health Promotion. All our India projects are suitable for under 18s providing they are accompanying an adult volunteer, so perfect for families with children wishing to help their parents. They are also perfect for older volunteers who have so much to offer. Duke of Edinburgh Gold can also be taken their with our partners who are an approved activity provider.

Volunteer rugby coaching and HIV/AIDs edcuation in Swaziland is also very popular. Whilst in Swaziland, volunteers can take their Level 1 rugby coaching certificate and learn about the AIDS/HIV educational programme that this amazing charity executes in the schools and communities. This is a fabulous opportunity for someone to get heavily involved with not only rugby coaching but making a difference in this country with the highest HIV/AIDs figures in the world. Personal trainers would also be most welcome.

Our project in Thailand consists of working with vulnerable children in pre-school groups and helping them with socialisation, personal hygiene and general pre-school education. These placements may be suitable as part of your degree and are with an organization that receives University students from many countries already.

The charity in Bali are looking for volunteers to come in pairs who are 25+ and who are willing to get involved in their Outreach Project, teaching disabled children, helping with fundraising activities, driving or teaching English in local schools.

Ecuador and The Galapagos offers Spanish speaking placements for anyone who wants to improve their language skills and also get involved in a project. Projects include teaching in schools, street children schemes, looking after rescued jungle animals, working in conservation, working in an Eco Lodge, and coaching football. All volunteers spend their first week in the Spanish School in Quito to work on their language skills and at all times live with Spanish speaking families.

Soutpansberg Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation (SCBC)

Description

The Soutpaspansberg Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation was established in 2014 in order to catalogue the biodiversity of understudied animals in the Soutpansberg region of South Africa. The project initially began with a strong herpetological emphasis; soon it became apparent that it would be impossible to limit the study to a single group. Soon amphibians, small mammals, scorpions, Theraphosidae, Odonata and Lepidoptera were added to the focus of the study. The inclusion of the additional groups has not hampered the reptilian data collection as these groups are often encountered while searching for reptiles. We aim to provide an experience that will bring people into close contact with nature – uncoupled from the everyday routines of urban-based consumer culture – and to facilitate new ways of relating to the world.

We require research assistant volunteers to help us with our ongoing project:
Currently we are looking for people interested in herpetology, entomology, arachnids and small mammals. Participants need to be comfortable around reptiles, reasonably fit and happy to live without electricity (we do have solar power) and in a remote area. Data is collected through fieldwork as well as accessing existing databases and private collections/lists. Where possible fieldwork will be conducted in understudied regions to the East and north of the Soutpansberg range. The collected information will indicate biodiversity hotspots and highlight areas for the consideration of conservational action.

The information generated from this project will include species lists, distribution within the region, habitat preferences and also biological notes of observed behaviours. One of the intended outcomes of the project and the collected information is the consolidation of the information into a publication for future research reference as well as for the education of the interested public.

Research assistants who wish to partake in their own research may do so after discussing their options and drafting a proposal with our help. We are also able to take on students who need to do an internship as part of their course if we our informed upon booking.

The SCBC aims to provide an experience that will bring people into close contact with nature – uncoupled from the everyday routines of urban-based consumer culture – and to facilitate new ways of relating to the world.

Skills and Knowledge you will acquire through participation:
• Reptile and Amphibian Identification and Data Collection for Conservation
• Setting up and maintaining Pit Fall and Funnel Traps for small vertebrates and invertebrates
• Arthropod Identification and Data Collection for Conservation
• Horticulture for Conservation
• Basic Tracking
• Bird Identification and Bird Conservation Data Collection
• Basic Ecology and Conservation in a Changing World
