Accommodation and Cost

What are the costs for onsite volunteers?

Volunteers incur small costs on placement since PAAJAF does not have a sponsor at this moment. This will be waived as soon as we receive sponsorship to place volunteers. Your cost now depends on the length of your stay and your accommodation preference.
