What is the minimum age for volunteering?
All volunteers must be over the age of 18 by the start date of their trip.
Do I get a certificate after my stay?
Yes, you do. After finishing your volunteer programme we will send you an official confirmation about your length of stay and your duties. This document can be used for your CV and is great proof of your time abroad and social commitment.
Do I get credits for university?
Some universities do. Just go and ask in the international office. We are very willing to support your request for ETCS.
Why do I have to pay to be a volunteer?
Being a volunteer in Africa is not a thrifty endeavor and oftentimes to cultivate real growth and development, more than just time and effort is needed. All of our projects are directly funded by our volunteers and without this source of funding, kululeku couldn´t move forward. In addition, because our volunteer initiatives take place in Mozambique, a remote region of the world, food, lodging, and transportation are all necessary elements in sustaining a successful volunteer venture. Kululeku also rewards our volunteers for their hard work by providing all the greatest adventure opportunities the region has to offer.
Who picks us up from the airport?
Our in-country kululeku guides will pick you up from the airport Vilanculos and bring you to our accommodation. If you fly in to Maputo, please read here for more information.
How can I get to know the people in my group before the program?
If you want, we will connect you with other volunteers on your trip date via private Facebook groups for your Trip!
