Bangladesh Summer Package

Our Bangladesh Summer Projects are for young adults 18 – 25 years old. These projects are different than our regular adult volunteer projects, in that they are “all inclusive” of all meals, all transport, and a slew of activities. Most of our volunteers in this project come into the project individually, but leave with a lot of new, international friends.

The following are the dates for our Bangladesh Volunteer summer projects:

Dates:
Group 1: The 14th to the 27th of June
Group 2: The 5th to the 18th of July
Group 3: The 26th of July to the 8th of August

Accommodation will be either in our own volunteer accommodation or in a hotel with similar amenities. Aside from any last minute bookings, we will keep the group together throughout the experience. For this reason, it’s difficult for us to say as to where the accommodation spot for our summer volunteer groups will be located, as it highly depends upon numbers of the group, and other bookings we have at that time. One thing we can promise is that all rooms will be shared (with volunteers of the same gender), have air conditioning, and access to a bathroom with a western style toilet and hot water shower, along with free wireless internet and breakfast.

Although volunteers in this project, will most likely, be placed together in hotel accommodation, our same rules of accommodation will apply (no smoking in rooms, no outside guests allowed in rooms, etc.).
