Volunteers that join for 4+ weeks should just arrive on a weekday, even though it is preferred that all arrive on a Monday to facilitate training and welcome together.

Volunteers need to arrive in Manado before 6pm, or they would have to arrange hotel/hostel overnight near the airport at own costs. Only in the case of a delayed flight will it be possible to be picked up after 6pm. Please email charlotte@workingabroad.com for further details or any questions about dates.
