Cost of Volunteering in Goa

Our volunteering programmes are inclusive of travel within India, full board accommodation and a fantastic range of activities, visits and cultural experiences. All you need to arrange are your flights, travel insurance, appropriate visa, packing (including medical supplies) and any extra spending money you want to bring. If you do not already have a valid police clearance (mandatory for some of our projects) then we can also arrange this for a small additional fee.


The cost is worked out very simply as £500 as a standard cost of coming to India, and £350 for every month that you spend with us. This also includes a substantial donation to the charity that you volunteer with, which makes a huge difference to keeping all our charities running and expanding what they do.


Sample costs for different durations of placement are:

  • 1 months for £850
  • 3 months for £1550
  • 6 months for £2600
  • 10 months for £4000

Please note that international flights, visa and travel insurance are not included as part of our packages. We will be able to give you all the necessary advice regarding your flights and we will provide you with an information pack to help you fill in any visa application forms.  It is important for all international travel to ensure that you are fully insured, and we require copies of the travel insurance documentation that you have chosen before you join us. For travel insurance, we recommend finding the best quote online with our partners at comparethemarket.com.

International flights may be booked from your home airport to Goa Dabolim Airport (GOI). We will collect you at any time of day or night and welcome you to your accommodation. The Indian Home Office recommends that you do not book your international flights until your visa application is completed and your passport is returned to you.

Fundraising

Ok, so we know that money doesn't grow on trees! We encourage all of our volunteers to fund part of their Goa adventure through their own fundraising events. Not only is this a fun experience for you, but it also helps to raise awareness of the work that we do out here in Goa. Fundraising is optional and if you can afford to join us without it then we'll welcome you just the same. But believe it or not, getting out there and making money for charity can be fun, challenging and a great way of meeting new people. We'll provide you with all the help and support you need to make your ideas a reality. Just see how far your imagination goes!


If you're not quite ready to join us in Goa, but you want to support our charities and our volunteers, you can still fundraise for us and we'll do out best to use our great social media pages to promote your work!  If you want to get involved, why not contact us?
