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.


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.


  • Short-term (2 – 4 weeks)
  •  Age: 16 +

General Information


You will stay at the Youth With A Mission (YWAM) base in Brakwater (just outside Windhoek).


Namibia is one of the most peaceful countries in Africa. We do advise you to follow normal safety precautions which any visitor to any foreign country needs to take.


Transport is available to and from the airport or the city on request and at a fee of 300 Namibian dollars. Transport is arranged on a daily basis from the YWAM base to the Beautiful Kidz centre.


You will have to provide and prepare your own food, though Beautiful Kidz provides a lunch on week days. Kitchen facilities are available at the YWAM base and shopping can be done in the city.


The following amounts are per person per day:

N$ 80     when staying for three months or more
N$ 90     when staying for at least two months
N$ 100   when staying for at least one month
N$ 120   when staying less than one month

This amount excludes personal expenses and food (except for a lunch provided on week days at the centre).

Please confirm these prices with us before you leave home.


You will need a work visa should you volunteer work at Beautiful Kidz. We will apply for a work visa on your behalf and the costs of the visa can be paid back to us once you have arrived in Namibia. 

The costs for your visa are as follows:

Admin:                                            N$  50
Handling fees (Home Affairs):    N$  80
Approved visa (Home Affairs):   N$ 390
