How To Help


Whether you’re a local South African wanting to contribute towards the transformation of our country or visiting Cape Town and want to add value to your trip, we would love consider ways that you can make a contribution. Our primary focus at Linawo is the health and well-being of the children in our care. As a result, we do have a framework within which volunteers are required to operate. We also believe that it’s important to serve in an area that you’re passionate about. If it’s cleaning toilets, please come and clean toilets. If it’s making food, helping with homework, doing handwork or ironing cloths, please serve in these areas. Some areas where you might volunteer:

      Helping with homework
      Helping in the classroom (only longer-term volunteers)
      Helping with housework
      Working in the garden
      Doing repairs and maintenance around the house
      Helping to lift to appointments or with groceries
      Painting a room


We also regularly need the help of professionals:

      IT expert
      Speech therapist
      Occupational therapist


Please email  Heather to find out more about volunteer opportunities at Linawo.
