Change The World Educate Girls

Students in South Africa are not the only ones who need mentoring and training. If you are master teacher, that is a teacher with at least 15 years of experience and are interested in giving back, you are sorely needed in South Africa. South Africa is presently ranked 138 out of 139 nations in terms of education. Much of its lack of success has to do with the transient nature in the teaching profession and lack of experience. If you’re willing to help young teachers by sharing your experience, please let us know.


We also offer counseling services, so anyone trained in family counseling, child psychology, or any of the mental health professionals.
Our holiday camps offer training in the arts and job skills including sewing, crocheting, dance, drama, voice, drums, and piano. If you have any artistic talent and professional expertise, please be sure to contact us. Week long master classes are also available. Volunteers should expect to serve a minimum of one academic term which generally lasts three months.

We ask for a minimum of three month’s commitment whilst working with the MInistry.
