Mission Statement

Catholic Volunteers Africa have undertaken to accelerate the outreach work in our local Catholic communities. We shall attend to the needs of the local parishioners, ministering to this very poor and impoverished community and will add new projects to ensure we make a positive and impactful change to the lives of this community.

Description

Catholic Volunteers Africa is run by Catholics. Based in South Africa, we invite all Catholic Volunteers to do outreach work in our local Catholic communities. The initial beneficiary is Sancta Maria parish, ministering to a very poor and impoverished community in Acornhoek adjacent to the world famous Kruger National Park. Our plan is to extend this operation to other parishes.

Our program’s main focus is on mission and outreach work, but also incorporates an opportunity for our volunteers to experience exciting wildlife encounters in the African bush.

As far back as 2008, Viva Safaris undertook to assist the Acornhoek parish. Over the years, a number of visiting tourist groups have helped out in various ways and the parishioners have benefitted immensely.

Catholic Volunteers Africa have undertaken to accelerate this great initiative. We shall attend to the needs of the local parishioners and will add new projects to ensure we make a positive and impactful change to the lives of this community.

A list of the projects for the local communities will include:

Building Churches, Clinics and Creches.
Establishing Fish Farming and Chicken Rearing projects.
Developing Vegetable Gardens.
Teaching English and other academic subjects.
Improving sports and cultural activities for the local communities.
Assisting with Weaving of Mats.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
