 Unique and inspiring experiences are what makes life worth living and what better way to do this with a partner organization that work in Africa! Khaya is based in Africa and works directly with a range of unique projects and programs for volunteering, gap year experiences, school group travel and internships

The meaning of ‘Khaya" is home or homestead in Xhosa which is spoken in South Africa and that is exactly what we strive to provide for you, family volunteering, school groups and gap year students.  
Founded in 2005 Khaya has proved itself to be a reliable partner for many volunteers, students and groups who choose well organized programs and internships, local support structures and affordability. 
At Khaya Volunteer Projects, we make our guests feel part of Africa and encourage them participate instead of being merely a tourist. We will show you an Africa you won’t easily find yourself. 
  If you choose Khaya to organize your volunteering experience, you will feel secure, looked after and well-informed.  

The volunteering projects we offer are both unique and affordable while still offering all inclusive services. 
Based in Africa, Khaya Volunteer Projects assists local partners and projects in Africa while focusing on responsible and ethical volunteering. Volunteers from around the world have the opportunity to uplift and support volunteer projects in South Africa, Namibia, Malawi & Tanzania.
