Would you like to be part of
this inspiring initiative that brings hope and physical comfort
to those in need?
Work for Love is an
open-minded approach to connecting and uplifting our local
communities through relationships, literacy training, art, social
empowerment, wellness and care-giving. It is our mission to
support the process towards a new South African ‘Ubuntu’
community: I am because we are and we are because I am.
We aim to achieve this with
our active, practical love, which is to say by volunteering to
work in ways that genuinely express joy, faith, love and hope.
Through our personal
engagement we become aware of the true needs as well as the
available resources of our diverse, local communities. This
awareness is the beginning of a creative, life-giving process.
By joining Work for Love,
each volunteer receives the gift of involvement in community.
As a volunteer you are asked
to develop a true appreciation of our country's cultural
diversity as well as to make a sustainable time commitment, i.e.
2 hrs/week for 6 months. At Work for Love we will do our best to
find a placement for you that will suit your timetable,
interests, talents and enthusiasm.
Work for Love emphasises the
importance of your personal wellness and therefore offers
professionally facilitated self-awareness workshops for the
volunteers on a regular basis.

youth group. Volunteers also offer training and tuition,
