Where We Go

We know how important it is to have affordable and realistic opportunities to volunteer. That’s why Therapists Without Borders does not charge any fees, whether for accommodations, trip guidelines/materials, or the application itself. Volunteers pay all of their accommodation fees directly to each program site prior to their departure.

In order for us to keep volunteer fees so low – well, nonexistent – we must rely on external funding for our operations. Please help us by donating here.
