Why pay for volunteering?

Your paying for support services rendered to you for facilitation of volunteer work. We are not an externally aided or funded organisation. It pays for the cost of your housing, and transport, as well as your training, preparation and supervision. It also goes toward the identification of worthy projects and partner organizations, as well as the costs of recruiting you and other volunteers.

One of your biggest investments when paying to volunteer with us is in your peace of mind—having someone there in case of emergency. A local election raises political tension in the area; an earthquake disrupts the transport system; or you simply fall ill the moment you arrive. These are all things you are better off dealing with when an organization like ours is behind you.

In return, what you will gain is an edge in the workplace. Volunteering overseas can be the bridge between your education and a career—even if you volunteer in a completely different field. Because the great thing is, you don’t need specific skills to join a project but you can be sure you’ll be leaving with some.
