Email VOLUNTEER to arrange your volunteer time slot and community hours.  Please note we are not a baby home.  Our children are junior school and high school ages.

How do I Volunteer?

For ALL volunteer visits please email us to arrange your activity and time slot.
NOTE: Any requests to volunteer on site MUST attach a Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) which can easily be applied for at your nearest police station.

This excludes any pre-arranged school group visits. 
Follow the links below to assist with the Police Clearance Certificate.

School children visiting the home must please be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. We offer leadership portfolio letters upon request, once the community hours have been completed.

Corporate Volunteering

Corporate Social Responsibility volunteering is welcomed and can be planned through Susan Harris. We are SARS compliant, PBO compliant and we would love to partner with any corporate to earn B-BBEEE points through socio-economic donations. We can issue Section 18A tax certificates for item purchased (where an invoice is produced) for our home or for donations received. We are governed by a board of directors, and we are audited annually. The Village Safe Haven takes responsible giving very seriously.
Corporate Volunteering events can be arranged to suite your company profile and ethos. We welcome your support and friendship.

Individual Volunteering



Getting involved:

The Homework Tutor program – Our tutor program is for the more mature person who has a bit of regular time they would like to donate.  Our program involves tutoring our children in their Math and English subjects. This tutoring is especially needed prior to exam time but can be useful throughout the year.  Our program runs on 2-hour slots once a week.  Agreed days and time slots can be arranged with Susan.


A health and nutrition program – How to eat right. Healthy me is a Happy me.  Mental health, wellness, and diet.

Art lessons - This would require you to bring your own mediums for an activity for a selected number of children. 

Music and or dance - Music would need to be basic such as the beating of drums and rhythm of dance could be incorporated.

Exercise Sessions - This can include dance aerobics or yoga sessions to music.  Please bring your own program.

Sorting of Donations Received.  This is normally done on a Wednesday morning.  We are in need of a volunteer to manage and sort our received donations.  Please contact Susan if you are in a position to help out.
