What we do


We support other organisations by volunteering with them and encourage others to join us and do the same.


We target a specific need and initiate collection drives to gather items and distribute them accordingly.


We form partnerships with others to assist them in fulfilling a need they have identified within their organisation.


We create awareness of the incredible work that individuals and organisations are doing within our community.

Our Story

"We aim to encourage a keen volunteer culture within Cape Town"

Emanating from the simple gesture of arranging birthday parties for children living in a Children's Home, we soon found ourselves hosting different kinds of events on a monthly basis. These events allowed us to nurture relationships through activities such as arts and crafts, watching movies, reading, playing games and soccer. We registered in 2014, and since have shifted our focus to promoting and encouraging a keen volunteer culture within Cape Town. In doing so, we support, build relationships and partner with existing organisations. There are so many 'ordinary' people positively impacting the lives of others, organisations responsible for incredible impact within our community, and just as many opportunities to volunteer. .

Keen continuously shows me how easily a fraction of our time can impact the lives of others. It’s so easy to take things for granted, but being part of this movement we’re so often reminded how fortunate we are.

Mahatma Ghandi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world”. My love for people and animals alike allow me to actively be a part of the change I want to see in the world.

I joined Keen as a volunteer on a couple of occasions and found it to be really interactive and fun, also a good way to give back to our community. We work with an awesome team of passionate people.

At the centre of Keen is the idea of recruiting and motivating people to become volunteers. To donate their time for a veritable cause. This is what I find most appealing about Keen.
