The survey also found that women contributed about 256 million hours approximately over a 12 month-period, valued at 4.4 billion annually. Women volunteered at a high rate (4.3%) than men (2.6%).

 

“South Africans spent about 379 million hours on volunteer work over a 12-month period. Had this work been compensated, it would have cost R7.5 billion per annum,” said Chief Survey Statistician for Household Labour Market Statistics Malerato Mosiane on Tuesday.

 

The volunteer rate was highest among divorced/separated women and married women while those with higher levels of education volunteered more than their lesser educated counterparts.
