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.

Dear visitor


In these precarious times, we stay committed to extending our solidarity and support to marginalised communities who, once again, will bear the brunt of another worldwide crisis.

Right now, we are reassessing how we can do just that. We aim to start new teams in August. The world will need all good forces who are willing and able to do whatever is needed. Let’s unite and get to work as soon as possible.

Stay safe and best wishes!
The Take 10 Volunteer communications and admissions team
