Community development

Community development

Our community development projects give you the opportunity to make a worthwhile contribution to a local community, at the same time as gaining valuable hands on experience should you wish to pursue this area of study at university.

 

There are community development volunteer projects in the following destinations:
 

 

Argentina


Students will be based in Buenos Aires and travel to some of the poorer areas of the city to do a variety of volunteer work with a local NGO. The work will vary according to what the NGO is involved in at the time. The work may involve the following:

  • Teaching basic English
  • Assisting with homework assignments
  • Working at a soup-kitchen
  • After-school programs
  • Recreational activities
  • Work at a community centre
  • Volunteer with HIV-affected children

Africa Combo (Swaziland, Mozambique & South Africa)

By volunteering in Swaziland and South Africa you get the chance to make an impact on the lives of young disadvantaged children. In Swaziland, a large proportion of the children have been affected by HIV/AIDS in some way. You can help in their day-to-day activities by teaching basic English, conducting arts and craft workshops, and just playing with them. At the end of your placement you will spend time in Cape Town, South Africa. Here, you are based in the Yethu Township of Hout Bay, a disadvantaged area of the city. You will be helping with basic life skills training, teaching and support for young children and adults.
