Why pay for Volunteering?

Why should you pay money to work for free? Don’t you have enough costs whilst forgoing an income and giving up your time at home?

Here are a few aspects you should consider in terms of why international volunteers are charged a fee:
As an international volunteer you are helping non-profit organizations or communities to provide education, health care, housing, animal rescue, wildlife care or conservation.
These local organizations have limited resources and they are often not able to support you with housing, living costs or transportation. Most of them are dependent on donations and every helping hand.
There are costs involved to prepare, train, transport, house, feed and supervise volunteers. These expenses add to our recruitment and organization costs.

Our agency will help you to find the right volunteer placement, prepare you for your trip, provide you with information, answer your questions, answer the phone, organize accommodation/car hire, assist with your visa, plan social meetings and be your contact person in South Africa. All of this requires experienced and professional staff!
