Simoonga Thandizani Trust School

Simoonga Thandizani Trust was set up in 2010. The school is a charity entity whose sole existence depends on volunteers and the donor community at large. The school has expanded in size over the years and now runs from preschool to grade 7-with an enrollment of 380 pupils.

The school provides free education, including lunch from Monday to Friday to all the pupils. The pupils who belong to the school are from Simoonga Village and the surrounding communities. Most of the children who learn at Simoonga Thandizani Trust School come from poor homes, since their parents are either unemployed or if employed, they do not earn enough money to support their families.

The school is looking for volunteers who are interested in teaching, environment care, health and nutrition, sports, computer and internet, art (fine and performing). Simoonga Thandizani Trust School is keen on having volunteers with a variety of skills and experiences that they can give and share with the school.

When you arrive for your volunteer placement with us, our staff will spend time with you to show you around the school & village, explain our history, values, and goals, and of course meet all the children. We do this to ensure you are comfortable here with us and get the most of your time at Simoonga Thandizani Trust School.

We offer accommodation on the school grounds and small kitchen for volunteer use, as well as shower and toilet facilities. The rooms are your own and safe to store all of your belongings while volunteering with us. The kitchen also contains pots, pans, cutlery, cups, glasses, utensils and an electric cook top. We will also arrange transport with you from Livingstone to our school to make your arrival as easy as possible. Lunch is included on the days school is in session.

We will arrange daytrips and tours while you stay with us so you can enjoy the beautiful area we are situated in. We offer trips to Chobe National Park, Victoria Falls,
and a game drive to Mosi-ao-Tunya.

Edwin and his team were amazing. Truly a great group of people! Very welcoming, super friendly and warm, and most of all genuine! You'll get your own room and kitchen plus a dedicated shower and toilet. They provided WiFi and as many comforts as possible. The room and kitchen are basic, BUT it is more than enough, especially at a non-profit organization like this. All our belongings were safe too, something that many looking at volunteer opportunities care about! As for the kids ❤️ they will fill your heart! Each one so special and amazing! So get your application in, you won't regret it!

Hello Frankie, it was really nice to stay with you and happy with your commitment you had towards your time at our School. As the School we really benefited from your knowledge and experience we never expected. We are humbly appreciated with a lot of knowledge we got from you, and we will also share with our community of Simoonga.
If possible, you free to come back again.



Una experiencia increible, la escuela esta cerca de Livingstone en un pueblito lleno de gente muy buena y con ganas de trabajar en comunidad. Desde mi punto de vista todos trabajan con los niños pero hace falta ayudar tambien al desarrollo profesional de los profesores y personal administrativo que ponen toda su actitud, yo tuve oportunidad de dar workshops y hacer un team building para los trabajadores de la escuela y estuvo muy bueno! todos aprendimos mucho! Los niños son un amor, la pase genial y la comida muy rica tambien. Edwin el dueño es una excelente persona y un gran amigo!!! GRACIAS
