We Invite you to COME, participate in God’s transforming work in Africa.

Opportunities available in 2015


Become a Hands at Work Volunteer

1 YEAR +

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.

Bring a team

1 - 3 weeks

Come with  a team of people ready to get your hands dirty in Africa.

Gather your friends, co-workers, small group, or members of your church to participate with a Hands at Work project in Africa for a two or three-week experience. Hands at Work receives dozens of international teams yearly, and supports teams in preparatory training as well as project preparation, to ensure an impacting, transformative experience.

2 - 4 weeks

Join a team of individuals from around the world organised and facilitated by Hands at Work, for two to four weeks of serving and seeking the heart of God in poor and vulnerable villages in Africa. The first two weeks will be based at our Hub in South Africa and serving in the communities there, with an option of adding on an additional two weeks to serve in our communities in Zambia as well.

In 2015 the options are listed above. We are not offering the SALT team that is described in the video during the 2015 season.  Sorry for any inconvenience.
