The FOOD Project (Virtual Volunteering)

New Course Platform

In this course you will discover unique South African organisations that work tirelessly to make a meaningful difference in their communities. You will also have the opportunity to support them in real life, by creating material that will enable them to address specific challenges.

Successful completion of the course will give you access to our growing database of virtual volunteering opportunities.

How it works

Our courses are developed by our team of worldwide ambassadors and made in collaboration with the projects we work with in South Africa.

This online volunteer experience will involve a collection of courses. This is one of several virtual volunteering courses which will contain a selection of projects and project tasks.

Once you submit a task (sometimes labelled as a quiz) we aim to have it graded with feedback within 48 hours / 2 business days.
