Why Pay to Volunteer?
It may seem odd – ‘Paying’ to ‘Volunteer’ – but in fact, your placements are free, and your help much required – the costs involved go towards your necessary accommodation and board, relevant visa, and transfers within the country. As an isolated country of tiny islands, the vast majority of everything is imported, and it’s actually a pretty expensive country to be in!
Volunteer Maldives work closely with all the NGO’s and organizations involved in each of the programs; accommodation has been checked, and program content has been reviewed. As a small and professional team based in the capital of Male, we’ve had many years in the industry, and have a vast network of resources that can be called upon when needed, giving all our volunteers piece of mind, when booking there once in a lifetime experience, they’re in capable and caring hands!
Volunteer Maldives is a ‘not for profit’ organization, and we understand, for the majority of people fees are not easy to come by! Pie chart on the righ shows how your fees are spent.
Volunteering your time in the Maldives though, is an amazing experience – incredibly unique, you’re very well taken care of whilst here, and you’ll grow in ways you’ve never thought of!
