Living Hope assists local community members in Breaking the Despair of poverty and disease and Bringing Hope through our various programmes.

Volunteers are an active part of Living Hope and we welcome those who wish to help be the hands and feet of Christ and spread His hope in our communities.


Local Volunteers

If you’re already living in the Cape Town area and are interested in volunteering with us, we’d love to hear from you.

We have opportunities that require a regular commitment, but also have opportunities, like yearly Christmas parties or Holiday Clubs, that come up periodically and don’t require any further commitment.

If you are in the Cape Town area and interested in volunteering, please send inquiries to

International Volunteers

Our international volunteers are our “missionaries.” They have come to serve at Living Hope from other countries and are designated a specific role in our organisation, just as if they worked for us. We prefer a minimum of a one-year commitment due to the extensive preparation on your part to move internationally but are happy to discuss other options.

Should you feel God calling you into full-time missions, please contact our volunteer department for more information. It is important to keep an open line of communication during this time as we develop your role. Please email inquiries to

(If you are considering coming as a group for 1-2 weeks, please contact our teams’ department at


All volunteer opportunities unsalaried. Those accepted to work at Living Hope as volunteers raise financial support to cover their living expenses, usually through gifts from home churches and other supporters.  Unfortunately, Living Hope cannot act as a vehicle through which such funds can be received and disbursed.
