Then join us for the TEARS Mandela Weekend and get your hands dirty as we put you to good use on 22 and 23 July! If you have a group or team larger than 3 individuals, please email volunteer@tears.org.za to book a group slot. Hope to see you there!

 

If you have green fingers, are good at DIY or plan to get down and dirty this Mandela Day – you’re going to love The Muddy Paws Project! It’s all about improving and enriching our shelter for the rescued pooches in our care, with the help of the aesthetic appeal of plants and creepers, calming scents of lavender and grassed areas for dogs to romp and play.
