AVIVA offers international volunteers the opportunity to make a vital contribution to Underprivileged Children and Endangered Wildlife while enjoying a life changing, hands on volunteering experience in South Africa.

AVIVA volunteers leave their mark in South Africa, not only by dedicating their time and energy to their chosen project, but also through the positive contribution they make in supporting local businesses, tourism operators, craftsmen and women, and the many jobs that are created and sustained by purchases they make, and activities they take part in during their stay.
Volunteering in South Africa presents volunteers with many beneficial opportunities for self-growth, improving their understanding of other cultures, their ability for tolerance and understanding of others, developing new skills and talents, gaining self-confidence and making new friends.
Many previous volunteers have used their project time to help them decide on future career paths or areas of study, and in all cases, volunteers have a useful addition to their resume which can help them stand above the competition.
Amongst the wide range of projects available year round, international volunteers can help to feed underprivileged children, introduce computer literacy & sports skills to rural schools; rehabilitate endangered penguins, track and monitor rhino, cheetah & wild dogs, or help to protect natural habitats & biodiversity in South Africa.
