Have time to give?

We believe volunteering should be a meaningful experience to both the volunteer and the organisation. That is why we are very intentional about how we connect volunteers in.

Students looking for Community Service Hours can volunteer to be a Holiday Club group leader. Every holiday, we run a 3-5 day Holiday Club at the Village. This serves as a holiday activity for our Ingane Yami children as well as an outreach for children in the greater Dassenhoek community. The club runs from 08:00 – 13:00 and includes crafts, games, a preach and worship.

Qualified teachers, both with general teaching experience and/or more specific experience in music, drama, sport, art, language, math are always a welcome support. We are also in need of qualified occupational therapists and remedial teachers to volunteer their time and expertise.

For anyone outside of school looking for a meaningful way to give back, we are always looking for extra helping hands for our various Village events! Dinners, Mandela Day Soccer Tournaments, Sports Days, these all take a wider team to make them happen

Get involved

The amazing Grade 8’s at @stmarysdsgkloof have partnered with Ingane Yami – making it the grades main outreach. The girls have undertaken fundraising for the village as well as regular visits to spend time with the kids, play and help them with their home work.

Dr. Andre Postma, a GP based in Hillcrest close to the village, is one of many skilled individuals who help look after the health of our Ingane Yami children. Doctors play such an important role in the lives of healthy, growing children and we are so fortunate to have the best!

@mpopedancestudio have opened their arms to the Children of Ingane Yami – giving our girls a fun creative outlet with ballet lessons every week. We have seen them grow so much, doing exams as well as dancing in the studios annual show.
