WE OFFER A VARIETY OF VOLUNTEER AND INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS THROUGH THE SOCIAL-
ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECTS WE DEVELOP IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES.
Prices for Volunteer & Internship packages
Like most leading NGO's around the world, we do ask for a financial contribution from our volunteers. This source of income is extremely important for our organization since we do not receive any kind of public funding.

Breakdown of discounts for those that can stay longer than one month:

VOLUNTEERS AND INTERNS INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING/INTERNING FOR LONGER THAN 6 MONTHS WILL ONLY HAVE TO PAY FOR THE INITIAL 6 MONTHS PERIOD. ANY ADDITIONAL MONTH WILL BE FREE OF CHARGE.
*a $250 USD security deposit is also required, but will be returned in full as long as all stipulations of the Volunteer Contract are met.
*Low income volunteers and interns that can dedicate at least 4 months to the NGO can apply for a grant that will cover 50% of these costs.
*Brazilians living in Brazil will automatically receive a discount of 50% on packages.
Additionally, we do not provide health insurance. Although medical services can be found for free in the local public hospital, we highly recommend having an international travel insurance to cover you at a better, private clinic in case of a more serious emergency.
Prices may be changed at any time without further notice.
How we spend your money
We are proud to have created a sustainable management system that allows us to spend over 67% of our funds directly on our projects. The remaining 33% covers staff; volunteer related costs; grants we offer to low income, long-term volunteers; marketing strategies; finances and re-investment in the organization. We take your volunteer contribution very seriously and we make sure it is responsibly used towards our projects and fundamental goals.
We support you!
WE ENSURE THAT EACH APPLICANT, VOLUNTEER AND INTERN RECEIVES UNPARALLELED SUPPORT FROM THE MOMENT THEY GET IN TOUCH, ALL THE WAY THROUGH THEIR JOURNEY WITH US, AND AFTERWARDS TOO!
