There are no application fees, but volunteers pay a program fee according to the number of weeks they will stay. The program fee includes accommodation in the community, three meals a day, the coordination, organization and support during the volunteer program. There are no mandatory expenditures besides the program fee. There might be smaller costs associated with trips to other communities. However, such trips are optional and normally arranged during weekends participation is not required. There is also a small shop in the community where it’s possible to buy beers, coca-colas, biscuits and candy etc.
