Our local host organisation FSL- India is a non-profit organisation and does not depend on any public or external funding and all costs are sustained through the participation fees from volunteers. Therefore volunteers are expected to pay the participation fee mentioned below besides all their personal costs needed to come to India (travel / visa / vaccinations etc.). We work only with local organizations that need our support.
The estimated Participation Fee is 14,500 Indian Rupees for each month (approximately 200 Euros per month, depending on the exchange rate)
Remember that the participation fee is non-refundable. Volunteers are therefore requested to carefully consider the duration of their program while applying.
Volunteers should try to exchange their foreign currency as soon as possible. However, it is recommended that they do not to exchange foreign currency at the airport as the rates are more disadvantageous. FSL-India staff can assist volunteers to find a convenient place/bureau of exchange to convert the currency or travellers cheques and cash withdrawal at ATMs.
