  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    There are several options, as we have several volunteer houses.

    Where you will be depends on availability when you arrive and how long you are staying and if you are completing a certification program:

    *basement apartment with either shared or private room
    *house with shared bedroom
    *house with private room
    *glamping tent

    Sometimes you stay with a local family, sometimes with other volunteers, sometimes with our program partners. We try to not have anyone in their house by themselves. Sometimes you will have to move to another house during your stay.

    MEALS/FOOD:

    Plan to buy and cook your own food. If you cook well and sensibly, you should be able to eat well on 3 usd a day. We get many volunteers and usually have some food supplies others have left behind and we also get food donations.

    Community meals are often arranged by volunteers. This depends on the group and if anyone organizes this. This is usually a meal rotation system with everyone contributing ingredients or funds for food, or if someone comes up with a meal based on what is in the house. Sometimes another volunteer simply cooks for others. You are always welcome to start up community meals if you want those to happen.

    If you don't have funds for food, and cannot figure out what to cook with existing ingredients, you may also dine at the local community kitchen for meals.

    If you help at the local meal distribution, you can get free food each Friday, usually a premade meal and some food to cook with,

    There are also places nearby to get free food and free meals if you don't have funds for food.

    CLEANING ROTATIONS/RESPONSIBILITIES:

    PLEASE EXPECT TO HELP KEEP THE VOLUNTEER HOUSES CLEAN AND TIDY FOR EVERYONE. WE GET MANY PEOPLE COMING AND GOING AND LARGE GROUPS OF VOLUNTEERS SOMETIMES, SO IT'S IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE HOUSES CLEAN AT ALL TIMES AND FOLLOW THE CLEANING ROTATION. IF THE LAST GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS LEFT A MESS YOU MAY HAVE TO CLEAN IT UP.
