Volunteering in South Africa has been built and is maintained by Black Alsatian Technologies. We specialise in web development and search engine optimisation and marketing (SEO and SEM). Our speciality is finding people searching for information and putting them in touch with the correct people.
Volunteering in South Africa was inspired by a client who is an expert in the volunteer industry. Potential volunteers are often bombarded with information in all corners of the web, some of it not legitimate, and much of it confusing. This makes it difficult for them to make the decisions that are right for them. In developing this website, we are focussing on providing them with an easy-to-use interface, putting all the information they need to make informed choices regarding the volunteer projects that are a good fit for them, right at their fingertips.
In addition, we are also helping volunteer project co-ordinators to find the right people for the volunteer projects they are involved in.
Volunteering has become a global phenomenon. Students often sign up for volunteer projects during their gap year. Besides students, volunteers come from all walks of life. Some do volunteer work as part of an internship, others do it for the life experience and adrenalin, and some volunteer to make a difference in the societies and environments that need the most help. Whatever your reasons for volunteering, rest assured that what you are doing makes a difference. And this site will help you to make informed choices that will enable you to make that difference.
IMPORTANT: South Africa is COMPLETELY FREE of Ebola at this point in time. SA is many thousands of miles from the affected West African countries, and has instituted restricted entry for all non-citizens travelling from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. South African airports also have rigorous and thorough health screening mechanisms in place to screen ALL air passengers coming into the country.
