Volunteers

Individuals

We would like to partner with individuals that have a heart for working with children and families in need. We have possibilities for short term and long term volunteering. As a short term volunteer you work alongside our staff to experience our daily work. You get as well the opportunity to visit the community. For long term volunteers the minimum period is 3 months (preferrably longer). We can assist you in your application for a work permit. As a long term volunteer you become part of our team and also get the opportunity to bring in your own expertise and skills.

Teams 

We would like to partner with organisations / businesses / churches that can send short term teams to work with children in need. Such an experience will have a profound impact on your team, exposing them to poverty and the reality of life in Africa. They will appreciate their own lives so much more thereafter. Teams can come any time during the year. Please contact us to check whether the time that you are planning to come will overlap with another visiting team.

Requirements:

  • Age: 16 +
  • A completed Volunteer form
  • Certificate of Good Conduct
  • Letter of Reference
  • Copy of ID
  • Signed Volunteer Contract (to be filled in and signed on arrival)

After we receive your filled in volunteer form, we will contact you. You can only volunteer at Beautiful Kidz, once you receive approvement. Send the filled in volunteer form to office@beautifulkidz.org.
