Iko Poran aims to offer the most affordable Volunteer Abroad Programs

 

The volunteer abroad programs have 3 costs:

Registration Fee + Program Fee + Extra Costs – The most affordable fees:

  •  All programs attract a registration fee of US$ 229.00 on top of the program fee. This registration fee is the most affordable in the World.
  •  Volunteers pay the program fee directly to the host country. You can be sure your money will be used to help the community you choose.
  • Extra costs are the costs to prepare for your trip and leisure activities when in country.

 

What does the registration fee cover?

  • Marketing costs, pre and post placement support from our staff, a complete country information guide, volunteer training booklet, detailed information about the program, administration costs, travel costs to run inspection visits in all locations, communication costs, and office staff.
  • This fee is the only source of income Iko Poran receives. We try to keep our office costs and overheads as low as possible to ensure we make international volunteering very affordable so more people can travel to lend a hand.
  • Upon receiving you application we will send you a link to pay the registration fee and get your booking process started

 

What is included in the program fee?

  • Airport pickup (most locations), orientation, accommodation, meals are included in most of the programs (please check the description of your chosen program), support from the office staff, program supervision, in-country 24/7 support throughout your program, in-country administration costs and donation to support your local projects.
  • The program fee is always depending on the services included as well the type of accommodation. You may find cheaper programs than us in some countries, but we all know that cheaper doesn’t always mean better/ happier travellers. We understand that a trip is like a dream and you can be sure that we will go the “extra mile” to exceed your expectations.
  • Program fee should be paid to the host country up to 30 days before the program start date.

 

What other costs will I have?

  •  Flights, visas (if necessary), vaccinations (if required), travel insurance (mandatory), criminal background check (required in some countries), meals (if not included in your destination), transfer back to the airport after the program, language lessons (optional), other optional activities, and excursions and/or tours.
