South Africa Volunteers
Anna at Second beach

Anna Foster, 23. Australia

I was walking back from the school yesterday with one of the training teachers and her husband when he asked me what was my favorite thing about Port St Johns… And I was completely stumped! Every aspect of my time here with the Amapondo People's Project has been absolutely incredible. I am so happy that from all of the hundreds of choices which came up when I googled "volunteer and south africa", I decided to come to Port St Johns and be a part of this wonderful project with the amazing team of people who make it happen. And to choose a single favorite thing is, for me, impossible - so here goes with a list of my many favorite things! In no particular order...

Before I came here I read on the website that visitors to Port St Johns often end up staying much longer than they anticipated. Now that it is me who is leaving I can completely understand the difficulty people have saying goodbye to this place. It truly is just a beautiful part of the world, and combined with the relaxed lifestyle, the friendships made and the laughs shared I have had the absolute time of my life! If you are considering volunteering with Amapondo I really cannot recommend it highly enough as a way of experiencing the "real" Africa with a truly fantastic group of people!

Volunteer in South Africa, you will not be disappointed.
