    Why does workaway.info allow listings of hosts who charge money?

    In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer's stay.  (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
    We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
