BUNAC is committed to coordinating projects that we are certain are genuinely worthwhile to local communities. This means that a good deal of time and money is invested in identifying local partners, establishing projects and constantly monitoring the programmes. Volunteers have the peace of mind that they are provided with 24/7 support from our local partners, and fees also cover services such as airport pickup, orientations and excursions. Further to this, accommodation and food is provided. Where volunteers stay with local families, the contribution that volunteers make to local families is an extremely valued source of income.
Paying to volunteer means that volunteers make a valuable financial contribution to underprivileged communities as well contributing their time, and ensures that they receive expert help and support both in the UK and while they are away.
