Program Details

Volunteers are coordinated by a volunteers coordinator who handles all their logistics and answers to queries. Once a volunteer arrives they are shown their accommodation and they sign the volunteers book. We have a child protection policy in place and volunteers are always asked to sign a copy.

Activities & Shift

All staff and volunteers report for work before 9am. There is a breakfast for volunteers at 8:00am at the accommodation. Lunch is served at 1:00pm and dinner at 7:00pm
Most of the work is determined by the school schedule. School begins at 8:00am and ends at 4:00pm


Lights out at 10:00am at the accommodation
The accommodation is a no-smoking zone however smokers can get a convenient space outside.
Alcohol is prohibited at the accommodation due to the hosts religious beliefs but also because it conflicts with the child protection policy. However volunteers can still access it outside the accommodation
