Outreach and Volunteering
In 2005 African Heartland Journeys launched Volunteer Africa 32°
south as the outreach and volunteering department of the company.
Mike and Sean, for the past 12 years, have been involved in a broad
range of community development initiatives, tourism capacity building
and educational support programs. In response to the growing demand
for their involvement on the Southern Wild Coast, VA32 was formed.
VA32 has experienced amazing success within the ambits of conservation
and rural education. 2006 saw approximately 170 volunteers move
through the greater Chintsa area with the conservation initiative
being managed by our project partners on a private game reserve
and the Wild Coast Schools’ Project expanding to four under
2007 has seen the inclusion of several new volunteering initiatives
which will primarily target humanitarian needs, notably health support
through skilled medical practitioners and secondly addressing living
standards of local communities in peri-urban, township, environments.
