Magister South Africa offers a Social Work internship placement or volunteering opportunity at a childrens village in Cape Town. Interns and volunteers will be assigned to a house working alongside a house mother. Participants will assist the children in their daily lives and help coordinate their welfare and activities. These can include helping children with their morning schedule, doing after-school activities, and serving as mentor and guide. Participants who are still studying can also assist with tasks according to their study requirements. In a village, eight to 10 children are cared for in small family type homes and are raised like brothers and sisters. The village opened its doors to orphaned children in 1994 and is currently home to 141 children.
