Finances

The volunteering period (6 months) is fully funded by our project partner, Humana People to People – see below.

However, in order to have qualified volunteers who have relevant knowledge and understanding about development work, Humana People to People demand that prospective volunteers go through a 3-month preparation period prior to arriving at the projects.

The training at the learning centre costs €2,700. The prospective volunteer pays this fee.

The training fee covers the volunteer’s basic expenses for the four months at the learning centre, which includes accommodation in a shared room, three meals a day and team programme expenses such as books, films, sports equipment, stationery, field trips etc.

The Humana People to People scholarship covers:

  • Return travel to the project destination
  • Traveller’s health insurance for the project destination
  • Visa for the project destination
  • Necessary travel vaccinations and malaria prophylaxis for the project destination

Additionally, Humana People to People will provide accommodation and a monthly allowance of US$150* to cover food expenses for the period at the project destination.

Correct at the time of writing (December 2018) but subject to change.

Other expenses

  • Health insurance for the four months at the learning centre will be financed by you or through a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
  • Personal items such as medication, toiletries, sim card, laptop and any other personal expenses will be covered by yourself for the duration of the programme.

Note: Fees, destinations and dates are subject to change.
