The cost of each trip will vary from year to year, from country to country and length of the trip. Each volunteer is required to pay his or her own expenses, including the cost of international airline fare, visa, domestic airfare, local transportation, accomodations, food, general supplies and services, activities, and all personal spending during the trip. Many volunteers have solicited financial support from their circle of family and friends, their communities, their peers and co-workers etc... We are a charitable organization with no paid staff and no overhead, and with all volunteers responsible for their own trip expenses. Your donation of resources, time, and skills will go directly to the programs serving the children living in deep poverty.
