When it comes to the practicalities, most volunteer programs will include accommodation either in shared dormitory style housing or a local homestay. This means that most of the costs are covered up front and you only need focus on a budget for weekend travel and evening outings. When choosing a program pay attention to these details - some participants may enjoy a homestay for the opportunities it offers to connect with the locals and further immerse into the culture, whilst others may opt for a shared volunteer house where they have more possibilities to socialize with fellow volunteers.

Meals might also be provided some days as well, helping you to manage your budget, but be sure to make time to sample some of the amazing street food that the city has to offer as well, it’s pretty much unmissable!
