Where your skills match a local need and make an impact in South Africa
Express your unique passions and expertise in a project that matters to you
iKapa Impact is a well-established volunteer and internship program. We have formed deep relationships with non-profit organizations in the Cape Town area that work to solve a wide range of social injustices in our communities.
We invite you to share your skills and passions which will help match you to organizations where you can make the biggest difference. This tailored approach has proven to be incredibly rewarding and meaningful for all past iKapa Impact interns and volunteers.
Our goal is to ensure an enriching and impactful experience for both you and the organization you work with. We invite you to get in contact with us so we can learn more about you and what drives you!

Owing to my ability to bring innovative solutions to the fray, largely thanks to my time at Connect Network working with the awesome team there."
