We create awareness of the 3 millions orphans in South Africa by getting large groups of volunteers to do extreme makeovers at Children’s Homes.

Become a volunteer

While you could say that houses are built with concrete, boarding, brick and paint, at Newkidz the homes we makeover are built with love and care – and you! By registering your interest with Newkidz, your details will be added to our volunteer database for future communication and invitation to participate.

Volunteer your skills

As the work we do grows, we also need to grow the organisation, so that the difference we make to the children we reach continues to be the most meaningful possible. We continuously review our objectives and plans to identify the skills we need to make them a reality.

Help raise funds

We get very excited when we hear that we have a new activist willing to get creative to help us raise funds. Newkidz is all about action, we don’t just talk about making a difference, we do it, and it’s fantastic to know you’ll be doing it with us in your own special and unique way.

Host a child

Hosting a child involves inviting the child into your home for a day or weekend – especially over the holidays – and involving them in your loving  family life, treats and outings. It’s all about providing family life experiences to these children who may never know them otherwise.

Upcoming Projects

There is a place for every willing person to contribute at Newkidz – we need volunteers for everything from project team leaders, painters, registration officers, gardeners, store control, parking management to serving refreshments.
