The work of Shelter Ministries is largely done by volunteers. The only people in Shelter who earn a salary are the local people who work in the children home, the youth centre and the pre-school teacher. They fulfil a very important role because they know the language and culture of the local people. In order to keep costs low, we rely on volunteers where possible so that the money that we receive for donations can be used to the benefit of the children.
For this reason we request volunteers to make a financial contribution towards their living costs when they work with Shelter. A list of important guidelines has been prepared for the volunteers who wish to offer their services at Shelter in South Africa. If the work of Shelter Ministries touches your heart and you are interested to sign up, please first read these guidelines.
If after having read these guidelines you are interested to work as a volunteer in South Africa, you are welcome to complete the contact form for volunteers. We will then contact you as soon as possible.
