Gift in Memory

Donating in Memory of a loved one is a lasting and rewarding way to make a tribute to a loved one’s life. This heartfelt gift will assist us to plan and implement long-term programs that will have a lasting impact in making our Children Safe and Secure. In-Memory Donations can be made at any time, from a once off donation to an annual occurrence to commemorate a loved one’s birthday or wedding anniversary. Your donation can remain anonymous, if you wish it to remain a private affair.

Funeral Collections

If you are arranging a funeral service, you may want to encourage friends and relatives to make an ‘In Memory’ donation to Give a Child a Family. A gift ‘In Memory’ sustains our work in fighting poverty, supporting child protection and community strengthening, as well as helping families in need to build a brighter future for themselves and their children.

International Volunteer Programme

The International Volunteer Programme offers the opportunity for a life-changing experience. Give a Child a Family Africa believes that volunteering is a two-way experience, which brings value to not only the organisation, but also to the volunteers.

The 6 to 12-month programme provides people from the age of 19 years and up with cultural exchange, new knowledge and environments. As team members, international volunteers actively work with our staff in different departments, possibly on rotation according to the organisation’s needs. This includes driving to schools and clinics, maintenance work, housekeeping, school holiday programmes and more. Also, special skills can be utilised, such as carpentry, occupational therapy, IT and more.

Online orientation meetings will commence before arrival and continue once here. For more information, please email:
