Help deliver Love Quilts to Vulnerable children in South Africa on November 16 & 17 2018.

Join us for a volunteer vacation to South Africa to wrap the children of Leamogetswe Safety Home  in the warmth of a Love Quilt. You’ll be giving love and a better future to vulnerable children, many affected by the HIV / AIDS pandemic. It truly is a rewarding experience to give these orphaned children hope, love and more opportunity in their lives through education.

After the quilt delivery in Pretoria with the Love Quilt Project team, you’ll be free to explore the beauty and wonder of South Africa including areas such as Victoria Falls, Kruger National Park, Cape Town and Wine Country.

Resting on the southern banks of the Zambezi River at the western end of the eponymous falls, this popular tourist town is compact enough to walk around and makes an ideal base for travelers exploring the seventh wonder of the world, the unfathomably vast Victoria Falls. About two thirds of the falls can be viewed from the Zimbabwean side and, while the falls are undoubtedly the star attraction, the area provides both adventure seekers and sightseers with plenty of opportunities to warrant a longer stay. Popular activities include scenic flights over the falls in helicopters or micro lights, bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge, white-water rafting (seasonal), and day trips to Chobe National Park. The town itself offers some excellent accommodation and restaurant options as well as an eclectic variety of African curios and authentic art sold by friendly Zimbabwean locals who are wonderfully welcoming and eager to help you enjoy your stay.
