      Hey Cindy, thanks for reaching out It’s so great that you are looking to join a project alongside your studies. All the projects we offer come with a fee, as you may know, this includes your accommodation and meals. But it also allows us to offer support on the ground and allows us to ensure all of our projects are sustainable. However, we do try and share as much information as we can with ways to help fund your travel. You can check out our blog post on fundraising and our scholarship page to see if there’s anything that can help.
