In 2007, my company Cape Studies launched a children’s volunteer project called: “Cape Studies Apple Brigade”. The aim of this project is to build a bridge between our foreign students and underprivileged children from Kalkfontein, which is a multi-cultural township situated at the foot of the Stellenbosch mountains. Students spend some time interacting and playing with these children using English to embrace diversity and discover our common humanity. This project takes place every second Wednesday from 4 pm – 6 pm.The meeting point is at the school.
In the near future we will extend this project to mostly catholic youth groups from the townships. Stay on for more information.
