What is Included in the Program Fee?
Accommodation and 2 meals a day are included with all Volunteer Maldives projects. With the islanders, and through relevant NGO’s, volunteers will have either a Home stay, specific accommodation attached to a school, a local guesthouse, or sometimes a house just for volunteers. The type will depend on where your project is based on. Meals will either be cooked by the host family, a cook assigned to a school, or in some cases meals will be arranged to be taken at a local café. This part of your placement fee clearly goes back directly into the community.
24 Hour in Country Support
Volunteer Maldives has a team of people dedicated to assisting and looking after all our volunteers. It can be daunting, arriving in a new country, and even if only logistically, both the Maldives and Sri Lanka can be pretty daunting. The teams are always on hand to guide you through each step of the way, from when you send your initial inquiry, until you’re at the airport and on your way home after the placement! We’re still in touch with many of our past volunteers who continue to be an inspiration long after they’ve left us!
