We love volunteers!
In fact, we look forward to having volunteers come and stay with us because they make such an invaluable contribution to the lives of our children.

Being a volunteer at New Hope Children's Centre provides rewarding experiences for you, and opportunities to use and develop your talents - maybe even discover hidden ones!

Normally we would plan ahead with you before your expected arrival date.

Airport pick-up and Accomodation: These can be arranged. Please contact us for more information.

Rest & Recreation: Depending on your duration of stay, you might wish to take some time off for a Safari. In such cases this would be done at your cost. We could recommend a good travel agent to help you in this.

Airport drop-off: By the same token, we will drop you at the Airport at the end of your stay with us.
