To volunteer with GLP, the fees are $120 USD per week. (Different prices apply for the medical placement). It is our belief that you should not have to pay to volunteer, therefore the fees cover your accommodation (lodging plus breakfast, and dinner), pick-up from Kilimanjaro airport, Arusha airport or Arusha town upon arrival and orientation. The volunteering experience is free. Fees do not cover airline tickets, travel insurance, resident permits, visas, volunteer visa and any optional day or weekend trips.

Please note that Tanzanian law states that as a volunteer, you must also obtain a Class C volunteer work permit after you arrive in Arusha. The Class C permit costs $200 USD and is most easily obtained from the Immigration Office in Arusha, and we can assist you in applying for the permit. The permit fee will be in addition to the tourist visa fee and is valid for up to 90 days. Please contact us for more details.
