The Childcare Volunteering Program in South Africa, Cape Town is aimed for the welfare of the local community and underprivileged children in the society. Volunteers joining in this program work in childcare centers, safe houses for women and children or in a home for physically and mentally challenged children.

All volunteers usually work alongside local staff or supervisor at the project and plan different activities with the children as well. All Social Welfare and childcare projects are keen to have volunteers so that they can bring in new ideas and also help the overburdened staff. The projects are located in Cape Town's townships and suburban areas which are socially disadvantaged areas of the city.

The project is highly recommended for, both, short term and long term volunteers. Short term volunteers gain an insight into the local culture along with providing the much-needed help at the projects, while the volunteers who join for a longer period are able to make a greater impact on the community and the project they work in.
