Who Are We?

African Sunrise is a company based in Cape Town, that places Volunteers and Interns at various NPO’s. We are a small team of Women, who strive to bring about change in the Cape Town area, by not only providing Volunteers and Interns with great, life-changing projects, we also get very involved!

We also have Swedish speaking Staff, who have made Cape Town their permanent home, and are always on hand for our foreign volunteers and interns.
We do fundraising activities for our projects, as well as Soup Kitchen Sessions every Friday. Our company is unique, as we have staff members from NPO and Social Work backgrounds, among a few. Our projects are carefully chosen to provide the volunteer and intern with exactly what they need, and also to maximise the good they can do for the children and adults in need. We tailor your experience to fit your studies, your interests, and also to offer you a life-changing experience. All of our projects are very hands-on.
