We love our volunteers!
Axium Education recognizes the value of visitors and volunteers. As an organization we strive to grow international awareness around the challenges and disadvantages of South Africa's rural schools. Integrating volunteers into the work we do allows us to increase our capacity, broaden our skill-set and, most importantly, spread the message of rural reality.
MY TIME AT AXIUM WAS UNBELIEVABLE! THE LOCATION, THE PEOPLE, EVERYTHING ABOUT IT! I COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE. I WOULD TELL EVERYONE WHO HAS A CHANCE TO GO AHEAD AND DO IT!

THE AXIUM TEAM AND THE WORK THEY DO IS TRULY INSPIRING. I FELT THAT THE WORK I WAS DOING WAS IMPORTANT AND VALUED. I WOULD ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND WORKING WITH AXIUM TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN EDUCATION OR THE OPERATION OF A WELL-RUN, MISSION-DRIVEN ORGANIZATION.

Axium Education operates in the coastal village of Zithulele. The wider area is known as 'The Wild Coast' and is a popular tourist attraction.
Explore majestic cliffs, relax on empty beaches, walk on pathways less travelled and immerse yourself in local culture.
170 volunteers. 10 nationalities.
T's and C's
We prefer volunteers to stay a minimum of 2 months owing to orientation procedures and the time it takes to get settled into the village. We are open to volunteers spending a shorter time with us depending on their skill-set and the organization's needs at the time of enquiry.
Axium Education is not able to offer free accommodation and food in exchange for volunteer work. If a long-term volunteer is able to offer a skill-set that is in high demand and something that we cannot source or develop locally, we may be able to offer a small volunteer stipend.
We aim to be intentional about prioritising the professional development of staff from the local community over the management and supervision of volunteers. For this reason we cannot guarantee your placement as a volunteer. Please contact us for more information about possible volunteer roles. We'd love to find you something fun and rewarding to do!
