How to Apply

First step

Please contact us by e-mail and let us know what it is you would like to do, whether you would prefer to be at a particular site or doing a particular kind of work, and the period for which you would like to volunteer. We will do our best to accommodate your wishes.

Selection process

There are no interviews. We usually discuss and clarify all arrangements via email, and make decisions based on the information exchanged. For skilled position we may request a copy of your diploma and/or relevant references and a current Police check. We will confirm you via e-mail the acceptance of your volunteering position and the exact period.

Next steps

•    Purchase or reserve your           flight ticket;
•    Get the required vaccinations;
•    Obtain travel medical insurance;
•    Apply for a visa (for those countries from which a visa is necessary);
•    E-mail us your flight details; we will arrange to pick you up from the airport.

Induction

Induction involves basic training in care practices and exchange of ideas from those with relevant experience.

Supervision

Current staff supervise volunteers. Volunteers are expected to work with their counterparts with an attitude of mutual respect and learning.

Evaluation / References
