Orphanage in South Africa

I am looking to take a month off from work and do some volunteer work at an orphanage in South Africa. The one that really caught my eye was the Baphumelele CHildren's Home in South Africa. The volunteer vacation is run by aviva. The link is attached: http://www.aviva-sa.com/projects/peo...lele/index.htm. Has anyone worked with this company before or heard anything about them? In addition, I would love to hear some feedback from anyone who has done similar volunteer work as what I was hoping to do. All feedback is greatly appreciated.

She worked there for 4 weeks

Looks like LOM has lots of great opportunities. I will definitely read more into it. Thank you for your feedback.
