South Africa: Diversify Your Contribution
Not exactly sure how to make the greatest impact during your sabbatical? Rather than devoting your time to a single cause, sign up for Edge of Africa’s Absolute EDGE program and embark on an eight-week sampler platter of volunteerism. You’ll rotate between established projects throughout Cape Town and South Africa, working with the big five on game preserves, assisting with youth sports coaching, teaching preschool children, and helping to conduct HIV- and TB-awareness workshops. If you fall in love with a particular project, you can stick with it through the end of your program…or beyond.
