INCLUDED

  • Travel Arrangements
    • You will make your own booking and travel arrangements once you are ready to come. All you have to do is contact us and let us know the exact time of your arrival.
  • Air Travel

Airport Pick Up Upon arrival, our in country coordinator and a staff will be at the Airport to

pick you up. Please do not forget to send us your flight information and we guarantee, you

will never miss us at the airport.

  • Ground Transportation
    • To get around in our host country we will use vans or busses, depending on the size of the group. We select well trained, safe, courteous drivers and make sure that the vehicles are the safest available.
  • Lodging
    • The hotels we use are clean and safe. We have hot water most of the time but, since that is not a universal feature in hotels in developing countries, we must be flexible. We rarely stay in what would be considered here to be luxury accommodations but often our lodging is the best that is available where we are working.
  • Group Meals
    • We are extremely careful about your food and beverages. These elements are among the most crucial for your safety and enjoyment. Whenever possible we eat in restaurants that we have personally evaluated for food safety, sanitation, and service. We will also guide you through your menu choices if you desire, there are so many fantastic dishes to be discovered. At the worksite, or when restaurants are not available we train and hire local villagers to prepare our food under our supervision. Meals that are taken with the group are included, but on any occasions when (if) you choose to dine alone or with a small portion of the group, you will be responsible for that meal's costs.
  • Translators
  • Nothing limits your experience like not being able to communicate with your hosts. We will contract with local      English-speaking agencies such as schools, universities, or other groups, whenever possible, for an ample supply of translators. Usually we are able to find university students eager to hone their English skills.
  • Tours
    • After we complete the labor portion of the trip we spend a significant portion of time visiting local (and some not-so-local) historical, cultural, and natural attractions. Most of the time there is an entry fee to the park or attraction. We'll pay that for you.
  • Guides
    • Guides can provide much more insight to the exhibits than we can imagine. We endeavor to hire experienced, English-speaking guides who have univeristy training when they are available. We try to use only one guide for the entire trip so that we get to know their style. Sometimes, though, we may select a particularly talented guide for a portion of the tour for which he or she is uniquely qualified to discuss. We will use other guides for the remaining portions of the tour for which they are well trained.

NOT INCLUDED

  • Alcoholic Beverages
    • We have no problem with you drinking alcohol - unless it gets out of hand, of course. Since there is such a variation in the quantity that people drink and in the costs of the beverages themselves, we are unable to accurately predict the costs associated with alcohol use. Therefore, help yourself to a drink but be prepared to pay for it at the time of purchase. Cheers!
  • Film or Camera Chips
    • This should not be a surprise, but we don't want you to have to guess, either. Please take lots of pictures! You will have a lot of memories to share.
  • Souvenirs
    • If you want to bring some things back, and you really should, be sure to plan ahead. Most people find that a few hundred US dollars is plenty for souvenirs, but your taste and pocketbook will be the final authority. There are many unique items for sale wherever we go. Some are hand-made, some are mass-produced. Some things to consider are how much room you will have in your suitcase, and how much weight your trinkets will add to your overall luggage allotment. There is always a weight limit for  flights and the penalty for exceeding the limit is very steep indeed - but sometimes worth it.
  • Snacks
    • As with our discussion about alcohol, some people are big snackers and some rarely take a nibble. Since this is another area with a huge variability potential, keep some pocket change handy for that irresistable treat - but not from a street vendor! We can help you decide what's safe.
  • Tips
    • Gratuities are confusing at best. Sometimes they're included in the charges, sometimes not. We can help you figure out some general guidelines regarding the appropriate levels for tipping but you'll need to make the ultimate decision. After all, you should be rewarding them for what they did for you, personally. Sometimes it may be appropriate for the group to collect money for a tip and present it as a lump sum.
  • Personal Medications
    • If you routinely take medications you will need to bring them, along with the appropriate documentation. Recommended medications for specific reasons (such as altitude sickness prevention) that you can ask your doctor to prescribe. They will be your responsibility, too.
    • Safety  tip  
    • we strongly advice you to at least learn more about the health and general information about the country you wish to visit from the internet.

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. Although most of

to keep these administration costs to a minimum so that your money can be used most

effectively.

Program
Several IIMAC programs self funded and supported by volunteers. However our organization most needed items are volunteers and resources including teaching and classroom materials, we cannot afford to cover all of the costs associated with training, travel, insurance, and other expenses related to placing a teacher overseas. Because
International Initiative For Mother And Child Nonprofit (IIMAC) receives no income from government grants or an endowment, we ask each volunteer to contribute or fund raise the cost of their placement and training in these countries, while the host country provides housing and a small stipend to support you during your service.

By requesting that volunteers help fund their service overseas, IIMAC is able to provide volunteers with necessary accommodation and materials to teach in our free education classrooms for the poor that would not otherwise be able to afford qualified teachers .The majority of our volunteers end up fundraising at least some portion of their program cost.
