The People


50% For The People operates it's volunteer tours in South Africa, beginning in the majestic natural beauty of Cape Town and culminating in lively coastal town of Durban.

En-route we participate in three different Volunteer projects that are benefitting and uplifting the local communities we work with. Not only do we supply much needed hands to assist with the daily running of their projects (All projects working with 50%FTP are non-profit organisations), but we also provide an invaluable financial contribution to each community that is decided on by the volunteers based on their experience of the project. Whether it be building a creche, setting up a community vegetable garden, livening up an old building with paint, or any need that you, as the volunteers, see that you could help improve.



As the population demographic of South Africa consists of only 10% Caucasian, who hold the majority of the wealth, the basis of the volunteer work will be in the under-privilidged rural sector, assisting those who need help the most.

Through the course of the 28 days volunteers will have a direct experience with several of the cultures that make South Africa the vibrant country it is. The Xhosa people are the original inhabitants of the Western (excluding the Khoi-San) and Eastern Cape, and make up the poorest level of many communities

The Cape Town project is predominantly with Xhosa and Zulu's, Jeffreys Bay brings you into contact with young Cape-Malay and Xhosa kids, and the Transkei is the homeland of the Xhosa.
