Interested in a new way of travelling? Getting experience? Making a difference?

By participating in our volunteer programme, you can support IMBEWU’s projects and become involved directly in the Port Elisabeth townships.

This volunteer programme is open to anyone over 18 years interested in participating in a hands-on solidarity stay. IMBEWU offers an enriching experience based on cultural exchanges and the opportunity to meet the youth of the Port Elisabeth townships through various sports and educational activities. You should already have a good level of English in order to be able to participate successfully in the programme.

Travel expenses include food, accommodation, costs associated with the United through Sport induction on arrival as well as IMBEWU’s assistance before, during and after the stay.
