Volunteers stay in a comfortable house walking distance to the beachfront and beachfront amenitites. The house is secure and can accommodate up to 15 people. Males and females share the house but rooms are separate. The volunteer house is fully equipped and if any need arises volunteers can communicate that with the Kurios Trend Coordinator. All communal facilities are shared.
Transportation is provided for volunteers daily, to and from projects. The transport is in the form of a minibus and seats 20 passengers. The vehicle driven by licenced Kurios Trend Staff at all times.
We provide all volunteers with an opportunity to see our beautiful city and what it has to offer. We offer a range of weekend activities at additional costs, from sandboarding and wildlife safaris, we make it possible for volunteers to truly experience our country. We also specialise in township walks, where you get an opportunity to meet the locals, who are more than willing to welcome you in their homes! Speak to your Kurios Trend coordinator and he will make sure that you get to whatever activity your heart so desires
We have two options when it comes to meals.
Option 1:We offer 3 basic meals a day. Breakfast consists of cereals and fruit, toast and eggs. We do not have a set menu for lunch, but seeing that volunteers are usually still at their projects, we suggest that packed lunches be prepared in the morning. Dinner is prepared by the volunteers themselves. Once a week volunteers will sit with the Kurios Trend coordinator and a menu for the week will be decided on. We will make sure that the kitchen is stocked for the week. Please keep in mind that we provide basic meals. We cannot cater to every ones needs, so it is important to find a common ground so that everybody can enjoy their experience in South Africa. Any luxuries (chocolate spread, ice-cream etc) can be bought at the volunteers own expense and kept in the private fridge.
Option 2 : volunteers purchase their own meals, we provide transport once per week to the grocery store, keeping in mind that that grocery store is a 5min walk from accommodation.
Your safety is our priority. As a commitment made to all volunteers, we regard your safety as our main priority. We know that travelling half way across the world is a huge decision, but rest assured we will be with you every step of the way. We provide you with 24/7 in country assistance, in the form of a volunteer coordinator. He/she will manage your stay whilst you are with us. Any questions may be directed towards the coordinators.
