Question 7. Why do I need to pay to volunteer?

As a volunteer you are giving up your time and your skills to help those in need, therefore many people fail to see why they should also have to pay to volunteer. The program fees you pay go directly to help support International Orphan Aid, Bykota House in Cambodia and help to pay for expenses associated with your stay such as food, accommodation, airport pickups, orientation to ensure your volunteering stay in Cambodia goes as smoothly as possible. IOA and Bykota House are completely funded by donations and therefore in order for the project to continue it is imperative we charge volunteers for their board, meals and airport pickups. We will help you understand what your fees pay for as part of your budgeting during the application process.
