Short Term Volunteering
Masikhule Childcare is a registered non-profit organization that realized the need for better quality care for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers in the townships and disadvantaged communities. They offer training in childcare skills to unemployed women, crèche workers and community workers in child development and stimulation.
Your volunteering time will be spent at Sikhutahle Day Care and Thabong Daily Care in Nomzamo, Strand. In 2006 Masikhule Childcare assisted 3 women to open these crèches. With some basic formal training and a staff of 5 helpers each, Muriel and Anastacia are taking care of about 150 kids, aged 7 months – 6 years. The children get 3 meals per day, which means not all the staff are assisting with the children as some have to perform kitchen duties. All kinds of volunteer support is needed. You could be an assistant teacher in the 4 – 6 year old group, or look after the babies if that is your preference.
The workday is from 9 am – 3pm, and you will work 5 days per week, from Monday to Friday.
