Volunteering as a group is a great way of doing some good with friends, work colleagues, or as a team from school or university. Groups often combine a specific project with sightseeing trips in the area, or as part of a longer journey through the region. The Mirror Foundation welcomes applications for specific projects, picked from a range of options.

Groups fundraise the money for the project costs - materials, specialised labour, and preliminary research costs - and the team members pay a supplementary fee for accommodation, food, transport and other administrative costs.

Groups generally work on a set project, which is chosen based on the amount of funding the group believes it can raise. For instance, if a team estimates it can raise 70,000B to pay for project costs (not including the volunteers individual fees),then it can choose a project type from the lists up to and including 70,000B.

The more funds that are raised, means more can be achieved by the group. An example: for a budget of 20,000B, a team can teach English for five days, whereas the same team can build a classroom for the students for 100,000B which will last for many years to come.

  • Length of stay: Varies depending on programme
  • Fee: Project fees from 30,000B; team member fees vary depending on length of stay
  • Requirements: Full health insurance; full payment of project fees, at least 4 weeks in advance; minimum 10 team members
