How Much Does It Cost To Volunteer?
Typical costs for international volunteer placements may include:
• Return airfare and visa costs
• Required vaccinations and anti-malarials
• Food and incidentals
In addition, if the project budget is able to cover some of these costs, volunteers are still encouraged to cover a specified portion of the associated costs for their placement or to provide MEDA a donation to contribute to the project. Having volunteers cover a portion their own costs allows MEDA to maximize the use donor and project funds for our clients.
