“I like the fact we went to two different schools, so I was able to see the difference in behaviour. I loved the fact that you let me work on my own with the small groups and trusted me. You were so kind, I loved going to school with you. Thanks for the amazing time! Thanks for sharing your material and knowledge with me. And thanks for the other hints of where to go and what to do in my free time. If possible, keep working in small groups, I know it all depends on Covid and staggered teaching, but you can see you make a real difference teaching less children.”Leonie Volunteer Germany

How you can help
- Join our kids to cultivate their ‘Love of reading’ every Monday and Thursday from 8.30 am 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.
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.
