Our Volunteer Center

Our volunteers stay in our Volunteer Center. The center is situated in same part of the city as most of our volunteer programs. By living in the same district as the center, volunteers can get a genuine feel for how the families they are helping live on a day-to-day basis.
​The city center, bus terminal and nightspots are easily reached by bus or taxi. Our other programs are within walking distance.

The Volunteer Center is run by Berenice. She lives there with her two children William and Carolina, as well as with other volunteers in the program. Berenice is the most caring and considerate host you could hope to meet. She is a former chef and looks after everyone with a smile and laugh.

We provide lunch and dinner during the week but ask that people make their own arrangements for breakfast. Our Volunteers have a fully equipped kitchen at their disposal including a separate fridge and weekend meals are usually a group effort. Dietary requirement can easily be catered for but we do ask that you let us know in the comments section, when you fill out the online application.

​We have a full range of facilities to help make the stay enjoyable including Computers, Wireless Internet, TV and DVD area, outdoor area, hammocks and laundry. The centre also has a phone to allow friends and family to get hold of you at any time.

​The sleeping areas have bunk beds and secured closets for volunteers to store their things. There is also a separate bathroom and shower. We would warn volunteers that like the majority of Colombian homes we do not have a hot water supply, meaning the showers are only with cold water. Luckily the warm climate means this is not too much of a problem.

Our fees

As a small NGO in Colombia we receive a majority of our financial support from our volunteer programs. We pay our staff fair wages as appreciation for the incredible work they do. The rest we use to fund our programs and help support other programs run through out the city. We have tried as hard as we can to reduce our prices as much as we can. We provide a fuller explanation of our costs on the why should I pay page.

​We have a standard Administration Fee of $US 65 which covers the cost of processing your application.

​The fees cover your accommodation costs, lunch/dinner during the week and the facilities at the centre (internet, laundry etc). It also helps us maintain the various services and programs we provide.

We would prefer that you pay reasonably soon after you arrive at the center. We have found it is easier and usually cheaper for volunteers if they use their card in the cash machines to withdraw the money, which we can then deposit the cash directly into our bank account. If you are not happy to do this we can discuss other options after you have arrived.

​It is also easier and cheaper for us if you pay in Colombian pesos as the banks here charge us a lot to deposit US dollars.
