Administrative Charges:   Our staff works every day to take care of our volunteers: Emails are answered; phone calls are taken; coordination occurs between projects; and most importantly volunteers are placed within areas of their interest in villages (country side).  Most of our staff works on a volunteer basis, there are at all times costs to any organization.
