Why should I have to pay to volunteer?
Volunteers are a key part of the project. Your hard work and enthusiasm are very much needed and appreciated by the local team and communities. However, we don't have the funds to subsidise volunteers, so we need your contributions to cover the costs of the programme activities. This includes meals, equipment, local staff and transport, program materials, the services of a trained expedition leader, on-site coordination and development of the programme and administrative costs. Your volunteer contribution also helps to create local jobs in an area where there are virtually no paid jobs available – and to protect local forests.
Will someone meet me at the airport?
Yes, please send your flight itinerary to ACF at least two weeks in advance of the expedition start date. An ACF or ERUDeF staff person or representative will meet you in the public area outside Customs and bring you to your hotel.
What should I do if my flight is delayed?
Please notify ACF as soon as possible and confirm your new arrival times so the expedition leader can arrange your transportation.
What should I do if I arrive before the scheduled arrival date?
If you choose to spend time in-country before the expedition begins, please plan to meet your team at the designated airport or hotel within the specified arrival window on the first day of the program in order to be transported to the local office and the field sites.
Starting dates on the 1st and 15th of every month, throughout the year, depending on availability (please send us a booking enquiry).
2 weeks: US$1350
