Cost:
There is no cost to participate but volunteers are responsible for covering their own living expenses (accommodation, food, etc) and transport to the libraries (very low cost). Participants receive help in finding suitable accommodation in Sucre or in the library towns, an orientation package to Sucre, and a certificate of recognition upon completion of volunteer service. Volunteering with us is free; however, given that we rely entirely upon donations and fundraising to keep us running day-to-day, we ask that you fundraise, where possible, a donation for the organisation. This will go a long way towards helping us to reach our mission of bringing reading to the children of Bolivia.

Other information:
The Communications and Volunteer Director positions require a 3 month minimum commitment. You will be based in Sucre but will travel to all of the libraries as often as possible.
