Long Term


Middle and Long Term Volunteer (MLTV) Projects need good preparation and independence of the volunteers. The teams are usually small (up to 6 volunteers). In the Long Term Projects volunteers also have some freedom to introduce their own activities and small projects with the community. Volunteers should stay at least 2 or 3 months (you can always stay longer!).  In April and October there is school holidays which means we can make more activities with local kids. Usually from October to December, activities are reduced because of the monsoon season (lots of rain). The projects are still open but volunteers need to be aware they will have a lot of time “indoors”, here we’ll rather say “underroofs”.

In each project, there is a host who is the initiator and the one responsible for the whole project. The host is for a big part in the spirit of the project. He assures the continuity of the project. The hosts of the projects are also the advisers for DaLaa organization.
