Hi my name is Natalie and I’m from the United States. I came to South Africa to both study at the University of Cape Town and to volunteer my time at Philisa Abafazi Bethu. Shortly after starting, I felt so welcomed. This was my first time out of the country, and Lucinda and the team made me feel so at home. I was able to help with their online platform, designing their pamphlets and flyers, and taking photographs at events. I learned a great deal from PAB and enjoyed every second I spent with them. Seeing how much Philisa Abafazi contributes to their community was an eye-opening experience. Volunteering with PAB gave me a whole new perspective of South Africa. I will carry the experiences I gained into my future career and life choices. I hope to return to South Africa soon and reunite with Philisa Abafazi!
