VSA Photo Essay: Living and working on South Africa's Wild Coast

Published on 20th December 2011

Returned VSA volunteers, Judy and Roger Hogg, lived and worked in Tshani Village, on the Wild Coast of South Africa. They were on assignment from March 2010 until October 2011.

Judy worked as an Early Childhood/Junior Development Adviser, and Roger worked as an Adult Youth Development Adviser. Judy rates teaching local villagers how to plant new species of food crop as one of her greatest successes on assignment. Roger believed his greatest contribution was the collection, analysis and distribution of data on HIV/AIDs and orphans, while filling a support role for Judy.
