Volunteer & Intern Travel News

If you’re thinking of doing an internship abroad, there’s a few things to consider. After all, most international internships are unpaid, and it will cost you money to travel there, pay for accommodation and meals, do some sightseeing at the weekends, and so forth.

Many volunteers come through the doors at Khaya, and each of them leave our projects and our country, equipped with valuable life skills and experiences. The many things they learn whilst volunteering with us helps to shape their thinking and look at the world in new ways.

The United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by leaders of the 193 member countries, and officially came into force on the 1st of January 2016.  These goals were set in motion so that countries all over the world, in all economic brackets, will start mobilizing harder than ever to promote prosperity while protecting the planet, up until 2030.

We know that volunteering, done right, can help others. Not many realise that helping others can also make volunteers healthier and happier! We all live such busy lives these days – whether you’re a student, a family person, a career person, or a mixture of these things.

If you are planning to travel to South Africa; on a volunteering trip, gap year or service learning program – the first question on your mind, and the minds of your friends and family, will probably be: Is South Africa safe? Is it as dangerous as the media says it is? If it isn’t dangerous, why do the crime statistics say otherwise? Will I be safe travelling alone in South Africa?
