Our volunteer program offers unique experiences to every volunteer/intern that joins our organization. You will have the opportunity to immerse yourself while giving back to a developing nation. While volunteering/interning with our organization, you will be able to see and experience firsthand the massive inequalities in education, health care, housing, safety and other basic human rights issues. As a volunteer/intern, you can make an important contribution to organizations looking to redress these imbalances of the past. Each volunteer/intern is individually matched to the project or initiative that fits best with his/her interests and skills.
Ubuntu values and appreciates the contributions by international and local volunteers and interns. Over the years, we have had over 200 volunteers that have assisted different organisations and schools. Be among many others before you who have participated in our partners' organizations and schools providing valuable support in and around Cape Town.
