If we volunteer, why do we have to pay?
We are charged with programming your homestay and we assure you that your volunteer work will be one of lasting and effective impact for the project. You will be supported both before you come and during your stay by program staff who understand the project and who will always be there to give advice.
You will be assigned a coordinator who will accompany you to your project the first day and to whom you can feel free to ask any questions 24/7 throughout your stay. We also arrange to find you the perfect family fit for your stay. You are paying for a service.
Does this include donations to the project?
Between 25-35% of the Administrative fee goes directly to the project you are working on in the form of goods that they need (food, groceries, clothing, shoes, school supplies, infrastructure, etc).
