Hear from our volunteers

“Visiting the courts was pretty incredible. All of the pretty difficult stuff was made better by having Mildred with us.  Being given access to the front seat in the court was such an experience. They’re quite small so you’re right in the middle of it.”

Molly, Oxford University, Criminology Volunteer in South Africa

“I learned from being in the heart of a working and active internationally renowned charity in johannesburg. Whilst I was there, they were desperate for funders and it gave me a great insight into the process that they had to go through to achieve funds to stay afloat.”
