Here at The Great Projects, we are often asked ‘Why do I have to pay to volunteer’? In simple terms, most of your project cost goes overseas to pay the direct costs of your project with the rest covering a wide variety of other expenses which can be seen below. If volunteers did not pay their way on the projects then they would not be able to run.
The project sites rely on the donations they receive to provide for the animals which have been placed in their care. By giving not only your efforts, but also a conservation donation to the project of your choice, you are not simply helping during your time at the site, but you are helping to create a legacy for the animals that reside there. Take a look below and see how your money is broken down.
