Free Time

There will be plenty of time to relax in the evenings and weekends. In general volunteers tend to visit the local countryside, read, write their diaries, play sports and plan excursions to local points of interest. Most Friday evenings, volunteers arrange a get together to celebrate the end of the working week. 

Health Issues and Vaccinations

Some countries require or suggest persons going abroad to have them vaccinated before departure and on entering the country abroad. It would be fair to view your country's government website for more information regarding the health of travelers. It is also recommended to visit the nearest travel clinic prior to your departure for abroad. Staying and working in another country, often in conditions you are not used to, can take a toll on the body and mind.
