Recruiting Organization: Nourish Eco Village

Want to make a difference in local communities while staying in a place just a 15-minute drive away from Kruger National Park? Participate in our Community and Conservation program in Hoedspruit, a town at the foot of the Klein Drakensberg in Limpopo.


All our projects are integrated, holistic and sustainable: to grow a better tomorrow.

We engage with our communities through an Eco Village model with a variety of programming initiatives that fall under beneficiation, education, enterprise and tourism.

If you are interested in learning about a new culture, doing research or aiming to learn a new skill, then we would love to have you join us.


A Nourish Immersive Experience (volunteering) is based on your chosen field, and immersing yourself into the day to day operations and running of the programmes. You will spend your day working with the team, learning from them and having an amazing experience!

We have a programming structure at Nourish as follows:


- Green Kidz (our environmental education programme)

- Social Enterprise, where we support and grow small businesses through an incubator

- Agro-Ecology training, very similar to permaculture, but more suited to African conditions

- Rise creches (Our Early Childhood Development programme. We support 6 pre-schools around the area)

- Eco Village (this includes our recycling programme and our general day to day outreach into the village around us).


This is a volunteering opportunity with Nourish, wherein you will help in our crèche, after-school library, and vegetable garden. You will also assist our local crafters. There is never a dull moment with us!

Not only will you stay in a magical place dedicated to helping the community, but you will also be surrounded by some of the most beautiful places in South Africa. Explore these and other locations in the province on weekends. Witness the Big 5 in Kruger National Park or check out Blyde River Canyon.


We welcome you into our Nourish family for a minimum of 2 weeks and as long as you would like to stay with us!

100% of your payment will go to our Nourish Foundation to help us to run all of our programs.
