VWB Projects

Project Selection

Several factors are taken into account when matching volunteers to Training, Service Learning, or Corporate Social Responsibility programmes. Once you have advised us of the following, we can propose a prioritisedshortlist of project options for you:

  • When (week/month/year) you would like to undertake your volunteer programme.

  • The donor funding you can make available for your project.

  • The number of volunteers in your group (where every participant will be actively engaged.) 

  • The number of days, weeks or months you can dedicate to the volunteer project.

  • The project-related skills level of those in your group. 

  • The age and/or physical abilities of those in your group. 

  • The need for local labour to support you in your efforts.

  • Your preferences in order of priority - from our VWB Projects 

  • Whether or not you want to combine your volunteer programme with other Special Interest Activities, Courses or Workshops that are available from Track of the Tiger T.R.D.

Pricing - we take the following factors into consideration when quoting prices:

  • The accommodation option chosen (participants or per room.)
     
  • The meal costs.
