To secure your placement on the project, you will need to complete and submit the application form with your application payment of £195 (included in the total project costs listed above). If for some reason, your application is not accepted, we will reimburse this payment fully. However, for those who are accepted, you will need to pay 25% of the balance within 14 days of being accepted on the programme, with the remaining 75% of the balance to be paid two months before arrival. Once we have confirmed your place, you will receive a pre-departure package with all detailed information on the project, details on the work, suggested items to bring etc.
All volunteers should start on a Tuesday and you can join for a minimum of 2 weeks up to 12 weeks in duration (long-term internships are also available providing you can get a suitable visa). If you want to start on a Tuesday that is not listed above, that will be fine, all Tuesday starts are accepted – please just note this on your application form.
Due to Covid-19 reasons, this project is on hold for 2021. Should you be interested to join in 2022, please email us to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can update you when we are taking applications again.
