Cost in USD per week
$100 per week
The cost of the programme is dependent on the length of stay. It costs US$100 per week (£70), payable upon acceptance as a volunteer, which pays for accommodation and services at the charity's base. Volunteers are responsible for their own travel expenses to and from Africa, together with living expenses (food and drink approximately US$ 45/week), immunisations and health insurance. Additionally, volunteers are expected to raise funds for RIPPLE Africa's projects in Malawi.
- Group living
Qualified volunteer teachers or volunteer trainee teachers of any subject at any level, although we will also consider applicants who have been educated to degree level. However, we do recommend that those volunteers who are not qualified teachers or trainee teachers study for a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) or TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) qualification if at all possible. It is important to have a genuine interest in making a worthwhile contribution and the ability to live in a rural environment while establishing a solid relationship with the local community. Enthusiasm for working with young people is also essential.
