We will provide two apartments appropriated for the basic needs of the whole volunteering team. Each of the apartments has three single rooms, a bathroom, a living room and a kitchen. The apartments are located close to the host organizations and the city center. However, the project will cover local transportation costs if necessary.
Additionally, we’ll provide a weekly allowance for food for each volunteer. Apart from covering the apartment and the allowance, the European Solidarity Corps Project provides a quantity as pocket money for the volunteers to use for their own expenses.
