Trip Costs Details:
Volunteers just need to be self supporting. Round trip ticket usually runs about $2,000. We are in the bush, so if you want to go on trips, and get off the property, used cars are fairly expensive, or you could rent a vehicle at a nearby town. As this point, we don't have additional accommodation. You may need to rent something, unless we get the funds to build a small apartment ($15,000). Food is not too expensive. Maybe about $50 a week.
Training Required for Service:
We don't have requirements for everyone, but we are especially needing a school administrator and teachers who are willing to commit to a full year of school at a time. Must be a registered/educated teacher/administrator. We are currently looking at teaching grades 1-3, and expanding as we get the staff. Need lots of handy man skills. Short or long term.
Characteristics of the Ideal Missionary:
Someone who has a "helper" personality. We are looking for cheerful, hard-working, enthusiastic and flexible people, who are willing to help where needed. Must be self motivated and a early riser.
