By giving someone healthcare you gain their trust. To give them education you empower them. Then you can create a future for them through commerce. - Rudie van Vuuren

Volunteering at Naankuse Primary School, the colourful facility providing free education and support to all of Naankuse’s children, is possible in two ways: 

​As part of the Naankuse Conservation Volunteer Program: This allows volunteers to immerse themselves in the world of our children, play times and music lessons complementing an already colourful curriculum.  

Naankuse Primary School Volunteers: Ideal for qualified teachers or those in the process of completing a teaching qualification. Volunteer on a “full-time” basis at Naankuse Primary School and let our children, all from unique and often challenging backgrounds, change your life. The minimum duration of stay is one month (4 weeks), and volunteers are only assigned to school related activities.

Days of Involvement

• Days of involvement: Weekdays (Monday to Friday); weekends are free unless a planned weekend school activity takes place

• Volunteers will be made aware of mid-term breaks, public holidays and school holidays ahead of their visit.
