Based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, Kurios Trend coordinates volunteering and service-learning projects for students. We create customized itineraries and projects that will allow participants to immerse fully within the community and gain the contextual knowledge relevant to their service. We are also unique in how we operate from within the Northern Areas of Port Elizabeth – employing and creating opportunities for locals, in addition to supporting already established schools and community centers. We are not a multinational for-profit agency, but a small, local organization meeting real community needs and providing an authentic Eastern Cape experience. Education, sport and community outreach form the basis of our programs. We believe in change. We believe in creating sustainable, meaningful volunteer programs and we encourage you to be a part of this movement!
