What is included in the Program Fee?
The program fees listed above cover accommodation, food*, orientation, transport*, and in-country support staff throughout the duration of your volunteer placement. A small amount is also set aside for future program development. When you consider the costs you might incur at a hotel or eating at restaurants, the costs are minimal. Plus, as Love Volunteers offers non-profit program fees, you know that every penny of your program fee is going directly to the local organisations and the people you have chosen to support. Our local partners are grassroots organisations and in most cases are solely funded by volunteer fees. For them to be able to continue the amazing work they do, volunteer fees and donations are essential. Ultimately, it is a decision of where you would like your money to go... to a hotel, or to a local family? We know which one we'd choose!
