New Partner: South Africa Volunteer Work Camp Association

South Africa Volunteer Work Camp Association (SAVWA) is one of our newest Beneficiary Organisations under the Give Together Program and our second partner in South Africa.

How Our Partnership Began

South Africa Volunteer Work Camp Association (SAVWA) officially joined the GoAbroad Foundation as a Give Together Program Beneficiary Organization in September 2019, after applying shortly after the program launched. Registered with the Ministry of Social Development in South Africa, SAVWA has the ability to truly impact sustainable development in South Africa and we’re elated to partner with them.

SAVWA’s Mission

South Africa Volunteer Work Camp Association’s mission is to empower urban and rural communities through work camps and the creation of sustainable development initiatives, while also welcoming dozens of international volunteers to support their programs.

What SAVWA Projects Are in Need of Support?

Our first project fundraiser for SAVWA is aimed at generating financial support for their After School Program, which offers academic and social support as well as an after school feeding for students from low-income communities. Our goal is help them expand the program to support 50 children in 2020.

And the Partnership Begins…

We’re excited to see our partnership with SAVWA grow in the coming months as they begin to build their After School Program with our support. Study tuned for more updates about their program and the progress toward their goal.
