Volunteers must be over 18, but there is no upper limit. You need to be fit and well, of course, but the most important part is your willingness to work hard, and to engage with the host communities. You’ll also be expected to participate in several team-building events before you go.
These trips are a fantastic opportunity to do something life-changing – both for the poor communities where they take place, and for the volunteers themselves. The cost of each project is £500.
