Hands at Work

Volunteers from varied backgrounds and ages around the world comprise the Hands at Work team, which mobilises, equips and supports the local church across Africa to transform the lives of Africa’s most vulnerable children. 

We invite you to consider investing a year of your life on behalf of Africa’s most vulnerable by being part of this team impacting people in over 60 communities in 8 countries. Come with an open heart and be willing to learn and to serve in whatever way is needed. Hands at Work volunteers serve the long-term local workers as “scaffolding”: a temporary, but essential tool in building a structure and leaving it stronger than upon arrival.

Each February, Hands at Work welcomes a new intake of volunteers.  The journey begins in South Africa at our international Hub where you will partake in a 5-week orientation led by long-term Hands at Work staff. The orientation includes sessions discussing Hands at Work’s vision and mission, as well opportunities to understand the development philosophy for how we are responding to the AIDS and orphan crisis in Africa. The majority of the orientation is practical and based on gaining first-hand experiences in the field to learn and understand the Hands at Work model of care.

As the orientation completes, each volunteer will be placed in a role with one of the Hands at Work teams. This will be a “scaffolding” role where you will support and lift the hands of the long-term team around you, and this can include a broad range of activities from teaching basic computer skills and administration to praying with our staff and encouraging them with your presence and support.  This opportunity is for those wanting to make a long-term commitment to helping the most vulnerable across Africa. 

Hands at Work is driven by the Biblical mandate to care for the poorest of the poor, and as a long-term volunteer it is essential that you understand and respect the central role that Christian faith plays in our daily work. You will regularly participate in Christian devotions and prayer times, and you will have incredible opportunities to encourage others with your own faith.
