How long would my placement be?
Volunteers can stay for a short or long-term; it’s really up to you. Your placement may be for 1 or 2 weeks or months or even longer. All volunteers whether the short or long term will benefit from volunteering at DGV and even in one week can have a significant impact on the children and staff at the CHARITABLE SCHOOL and local Health Centres. You will be supported and guided in every way possible. In an emergency, you will not be alone. We will be there to assist you.
Where would you stay?
You will stay in the volunteer house provided for by the organization coordinator and mostly live with these families who are only a few minutes from the schools and health institutions not far from the projects. You will have breakfast and evening dinner at home of the directors from Monday to Friday and lunch at the school. At the weekend, all meals will be at home. We can also cater for any special dietary requirements. There is WIFI at home, but this is limited; there are however several internet cafés in town. Bedrooms may be shared depending on the number of guests
