Volunteers Here, There, Everywhere

Heyo! So there was a lot going on today! Volunteers staying, going, and coming! For the most part, we unfortunately had to say goodbye to each other after two weeks of growing together. Most of the volunteers flew out today (except the ones staying for the Mozambique extension!) Those two had a pretty relaxing day….



Back to Durban

Hello, hello, hello! So we had a nice and relaxing day! We had a bit of a rough start though. After almost two full weeks, our time is almost over, and we had to say good bye to a couple volunteers. There was more than just a few tears running down our faces. After that…



Creche Party

Sawubona! (or hello in Zulu) Did we ever have an emotional day! It was our last day working at the creche, and none of us wanted to say goodbye. But as all things must, we had to move along.After doing some of the jobs for the last time, we settled into lunch. We decided to…



Another Perfect Day

Good’ay good’ay, Woah, there’s nothing better than seeing your hardwork pay off. From making bricks to starting a roof and building walls of a building–we have never felt so accomplished. We knew we came here to make an impact but nothing compares to seeing the progress happen right in front of your eyes. It’s clear…



Brick by Brick!

Hey hey hey! So it may have been another perfect creche day! The volunteers came ready to go, and did they ever! We managed to accomplish even more plastering, and we almost have 2/3 of the classroom finished! Not to mention, we even started laying bricks today. The Brick Squad absolutely smashed it and finished…



Adorable Kids Everywhere!

Howdy y’all! Man, did we have a full and exciting day! We started off with breakfast before heading back to the creche for a second day of work. The volunteers were amped and ready to go. We had a quick refresher on the different jobs on the creche like making bricks! The Brick Squad was…



Zulu Day!

Hello friends, So the volunteers did such amazing work at the creche yestertoday, they definitely deserved a bit of a break. We started today by relaxing a bit, eating some pizza, going to the beach and hanging out by the pool. We obviously made sure to have some cultural fun. So we went to a…



Brick, Brick, Baby

G’day everybody! So today was such an amazing one! We finally got the chance to go to the creche and do some work on site. It was the best way to spend our first day in on the second half of our project. For those of you unfamiliar with creches, they are essentially kindergartens of…



Lions, Elephants, Rhinos, Buffalo… OH MY!

Good (early) morning! Today was full of so much wild life! Visiting a new game park meant seeing gorgeous rolling hills, African wildlife and that refreshing air we all dream about. Today we got the chance to get up early and ride into the sunrise on our way to a brand new game park to…



The Lions Emerge!

Hey hey everybody! The day began with some great activities! We once again split into groups. One did the bush walk, and the other used radio telemetry to track rhinos and elephants! The group doing the walk learned more about all the animals, as well as a very brief history of South Africa. The group…
