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 and fund-raising 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 3-week project is £550, and the one-week Lebanon project is £300.
The deadline for applications is 20th November 2017.
After that, we’ll shortlist applicants and conduct interviews. The final teams will be notified at the end of the year.
