Volunteer and Travel Program
This is a great option when you only have a couple of weeks available and you want to make the most of your time. It combines a week or two of volunteering with a week of travelling and sightseeing.
Volunteer placements include:
Education Centre (library and computer lab)
School handwashing/hygiene workshops
Preventive Child Sexual Assault program
Child care at Babies Home
(Placement availability will vary)
You will stay with a host family during this time.
The travel itinerary emphasizes culture and eco-tourism. Accommodation is in comfortable but simple guesthouses rather than luxury resorts, helping to keep the tour affordable.
