During the holidays a group of students visited South Africa. They joined an organisation called Global Vision International (GVI) and did the Volunteer and Adventure experience in South Africa for two weeks.
On Monday, we started with our voluntary work in a school called ‘A.C.J Phakade Primary’, in the community of Nomzamo, where GVI already had some volunteers and a base. We started working on our sports teaching and constructions projects; this included hosting physical educational classes, after-school workshops, and building sporting equipment to be used by the school for their classes and sport teams. The sports lesson has been great fun and the volunteering group enjoyed it as much as the children. Having children coming up to you and saying that their grateful for our appearance and enthusiasm affected the group’s motivation a lot.
