Renovate a Day Care Center

philanthropic travel

This is the only legal NGO in the area and was established in 1998. The primary function of this day care center is to offer refuge, safety and support to all women and children suffering from abuse. With high unemployment levels, teenage pregnancy rates increasing and school dropouts rising, this is a vital service for the community of Alicedale. You can help paint rooms, clean the gutters, repair roofs, thus making the childrens’ living environment much more pleasant.

Accommodation in Eastern Cape

Eastern Cape

South Africa’s ‘wild’ province, the Eastern Cape features expanses of untouched beach, bush and forest. This was Nelson Mandela’s home province, and is an area with some enticing attractions – among them the Addo Elephant National Park, with the densest elephant population in the world; the dramatic Wild Coast; and, of course, Mandela’s home at Qunu.

There are some spectacular private game reserves here, including Kwandwe, Shamwari and River Bend (on a private part of Addo).
