dam5To gain a sense of what to expect during a project with us, we have laid out an itinerary to show an example of a typical 4-day group project programme.

This example gives an outline of the timeframe, not any specific work involved. There is a high degree of flexibility built in to the programme, at the admin stage, for groups who wish to adapt an existing sample programme, or build a new itinerary together with our experienced staff.

This sample itinerary shows the schedule for building, or renovating, the house of an elderly villager - our project pays for the equipment and materials, and the work that the group does encourages the villagers to help each other.

Requirements

  • Deposit: Project fees paid in full, 4 weeks before start date
  • Team: Minimum 5 members

Sample itinerary for groups: 4 day programme

The itinerary above is an example only - Itinieraries are arranged fully once more details of a group's visit are available. This gives more flexibility to the group's needs.

Costs are split between a project fee and a volunteer fee payable by each individual. These fees are based on a minimum of 5 volunteers in the group.

Included:

  • All materials of building for volunteer work at school
  • homestay programme + elephant ride
  • transportation, accommodation, food and drink, local guide and dedicated staff.
  • Project fees also include the administration costs involved in advance preparation of the group's programme.
