2014 sees the official launch of the new Students Teaching Abroad Project which places groups of students in the rural classrooms of the Wild Coast to deliver computer literacy and English language support to young South African learners. These objectives support the aims of VA32's long standing Wild Coast education initiatives while also developing the skills of students in teaching and classroom management, resource development and more.

Afternoons are spent on the VA32 community development initiatives driving youth sports development, support to a local children's home of safety and a school gardening initiative which teaches the learners to grow vegetables. Some student groups choose to undertake individual research projects during their time in Chintsa - the learning space, internet support and time to do this can be accommodated into project in the afternoons.
