How you can help

  • Join our kids to cultivate their ‘Love of reading’ every Monday and Thursday at 8.30am to 12.00noon  in Hangberg, Hout Bay
  • Play educational games with the students.
  • Help full-time teachers ease the heavy load of overcrowded classrooms.
  • Give children one on one language and literacy tutoring.
  • Help develop a fun after-school activity for the students.

Volunteer Guidelines

To ensure consistency, volunteers should be willing to dedicate a minimum of three months of volunteer activities to ABC for Life. These are on site at Sentinel Primary and directly impact the children in the most positive way. We aim to promote continuity in the lives of our students, and having a person they can rely on for a significant amount of time is one way we can do this. Please bear in mind that we do work on a public school campus in an impoverished area. Volunteers need to be flexible and open-minded in this tough environment.
