Metro Kids Africa cares for children and young people from socially disadvantaged families. You can get involved by joining our Child Sponsorship Programme and sponsor a child in Africa.
We welcome volunteer work in South Africa. Volunteers can join us for a week or a few months! You will join our team in helping carry out the weekly programmes, assist with home visits in the children’s communities and impact the lives of vulnerable children.

Sponsor A Child In Africa
The sponsorship is a vital part of Metro Kids Africa. When you become a sponsor you are going to make a difference in an African child’s life.
