Claim Victory

Claim Victory started back in 1999, when Frans Bezuidenhout saw the need for international volunteers at several NPO organizations in and around the Cape Town area. He wanted to give the much needed support these organizations needed, without them losing the identity of their establishments.

Today Claim Victory places over 400 international volunteers on a yearly basis, all over Namibia & South Africa, providing placement opportunities in 8 out of the 9 provinces in South Africa & the majority of Namibia.

Claim Victory offers the following services:

  • Volunteering in social or animal fields (All-inclusive packages)
  • Internships (Teaching & Veterinary practical opportunities for University students)
  • Travel & tour packages (South Africa & Namibia)
