Overview

Overview

Aspect Africa specializes in community-owned volunteer solutions, by developing, designing and implementing programmes with local community-based organisations around the Pafuri Node of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park in Southern Africa, so that they may find pathways to sustainability.

Our focus is on education inside and outside the classroom at primary and secondary school level in Zimbabwe and South Africa through purposeful play and sport for social impact by creating safe spaces for the young and the youth to talk and tackle social issues they face in their communities.

We aim, with our local partners, to give girls of the Pafuri region the best opportunity they deserve to reach their full potential.

After finishing high school, I wanted to discover some parts of the world I have never been to. I decided to volunteer with Aspect Africa in South Africa - and that was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I stayed with a lovely local host family in a remote village, which is the most immersive way to learn about another culture and their way of life. The kids I worked with were wonderful, and I'd say I learnt as much from them as they learnt from me. Being so close to Kruger Park also meant lots of adventures in nature - may that be lazy river rafting on a hot summer day or discovering the big 5. I also had the opportunity to travel around a little, to the Drakensberg and Mozambique, for example. Overall, it was an amazing experience and I would not want to miss it!

Going to southern Africa with Aspect Africa was an amazing experience, living with host families in the bush was an eye-opener where you get to understand how life really is for people. Staying on the border of the Kruger National Park and in the Great Limpopo Conservation Area, seeing elephants, hearing hyena, sleeping out in a big 5 area near waterfalls was special. I'd definitely recommend this programme, Zimbabwe next time for me!
