Some of these volunteer projects offer free placements, meaning they provide food and accommodation at no cost to volunteers. (However, note that travel expenses, such as visa fees and airfare, are typically not covered). Additionally, there are projects that may require volunteers to contribute a small fee towards their food and lodging expenses. This is because not all host organizations can fully cover these costs. If you have limited time for volunteering, like one or two weeks, we recommend considering fee-based projects. Your monetary contribution can have a more significant impact during your volunteer experience.
Voluntouring is not a tourist agency; we don’t charge intermediation fees. This ensures that all your financial contributions directly support the organization or community you’ll be assisting.
