Volunteer for Coco’s Foundation

Why not join us on a visit to Africa?

This could be the most moving and inspiring trip of your life…

If you’d like to take part in a life-changing experience and help poverty-stricken communities – why not join us on one of our regular trips to South Africa?


Coco’s Foundation take up to three trips of volunteers to the Kwa-Zulu Natal area every year to help build much-needed homes and facilities and to deliver food parcels and Teddies to impoverished villagers and children.

You’ll need to raise your travel costs, plus sponsorship for your chosen project and be prepared to get your hands dirty. Download our Fundraising Guide here.

Our Coco’s Foundation checklist [.pdf] gives you full details of what is entailed. If this is the sort of practical and worthwhile life challenge you’ve been looking for – please contact us today to find out more.

Please read our Child Safeguarding Policy [.pdf] before your trip to Africa. Thank you.


Six week intern trip

Are you thinking about travelling and making a difference in the summer of 2020 as an intern?

We offer an internship programme for students with Maths or Science experience to support students in the Christoph Meyer Math & Science Centre in Mseleni, Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. We have been working with students at this school for the last 4 years. The centre supports young students who have failed their Maths or Science at Matric Level (GCSE) or wish to improve their grade.

You will have the opportunity to work with both teenagers and students in their early twenties, supporting them as a group and on a one-on-one basis to pass their Matric. You will also be expected to demonstrate small science experiments to local Primary and Secondary schools that come to the Christoph Meyer school for further additional support in Maths and Science.

The trip dates are from 23rd July to 29th August 2020. You will be staying in the local community with a local family and part of your payment will go to supporting this local family. You’ll have the opportunity to go on a safari and spend days at the beach with the possibilities to learn to scuba dive in your downtime.

To get involved please contact Chris info@cocosfoundation.co.uk
