Cost:
There is no cost to participate but volunteers are responsible for covering their own living expenses. We currently provide accompaniers with about US$75 per month to help towards the cost of food and travel, but this is not sufficient to cover the full cost of living. In the communities, accommodation is normally provided free of charge. In the capital, accommodation is also provided in the accompanier’s house. For use of this house, all accompaniers are asked to contribute Q50 per month, and to contribute to keeping the house clean and tidy. In addition to these expenses, it is also essential that every accompanier pays for his/her own travel insurance, to cover medical bills in the event of illness or accident.
