Lowest Cost Programs

Low-cost, high-quality programs are possible! We often get the question "What is your cheapest program?"  We also get the question why is it so cheap? The price of our programs is based on two things. First is the cost of running the program in the country. Some locations are simply more expensive.  The second is based on our non-profit status. Since we only need to charge enough to cover our expenses, we have the option of subsidizing some of our programs. Our "Youth Initiative" programs are an example of this. Here are a few programs that we offer basically for free. See our blog post "Volunteer for Free."
