Broadening my perspective – Visiting the Projects

Most of the volunteers at Khaya work at Izizwe Projects, they leave home at 8:30 am and finish at 3:30 pm. I accompanied them several times to understand their involvement in the community as well as how the project operates. Celia is the manager and works closely with Lloyd, Leesah and Zweli. Everyone has a speciality, for Lloyd it is sport, Leesa deals with the education of children and Zweli is the dance master. This project offers many activities for the children of Walmer Township. These activities include basketball, tooth brushing, adult literacy, English lessons and dancing.

Broadening my perspective – Visiting the Projects

I've been working with Rushin for a month now. My job is to create content for sites like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. We work well together, he is my writer and I'm in charge of the design. We have put a lot in place to move in the right direction. The aim is to create brand awareness for Khaya as the ideal intern and travel volunteer organisation, to give insight into the experiences of volunteers and what we do. It is an exciting experience to be able to work as a marketing intern as well as a volunteer and to share this amazing opportunity with you.

Broadening my Perspective - How travelling abroad ensures my chances of a greater future

My name is Sophie, I am a 24-year-old French lady. In July 2018 I graduated with a master’s degree in business school. During my studies I worked as an optician which became monotonous for me and that is when I decided to do something different with my life, I decided to travel. Travelling was always something that I wanted to do, and this was the perfect time to do it.

African Time

Waiting at a border post in Zambia it became clear again how time and the use and measure of it is so different in Africa from where I grew up. I am watching a man behind a desk standing in one of the queues I will have to stand in that morning.

Charity in Africa; helping or harming?

Some have given up on Africa, aid and charity have proven to be inadequate and merely keeps the industry of ‘international aid’ alive as so much of their funds disappear in the massive overheads of advisors and committees. Some however still believe that aid and charitable efforts in Africa help and improve something.
