Do true, highly rated by charity watchdog groups, international non profits normally pay for the airfare and lodging of their volunteers?
I always thought it was a scam if the volunteer had to pay for their own airfare and lodging, but I would like to know if this is the normal way to do things, in order to maximize the amount of money that goes to the cause. I frequently see these volunteer opportunities online and a lot of students go on short volunteer trips like these.
Say, for example, a non profit that goes to 3rd world countries to open up a health clinic or build houses for a short amount of time. It is often hosted or in partnership with the student’s university and costs $2-3k to go for like a week or two.
