FINANCIAL COMMITMENT
All volunteers accepted to go to Tanzania as part of the International Travel Team are expected to raise $3500 to help cover living expenses and project costs during the placement. Please note that fundraising will make up a significant amount of your participation in the Fall and Winter semesters as an International Team Member. SIHA Fundraising Coordinators work with volunteers to develop a personal fundraising plan that will include the planning and execution of various fundraising activities. Additionally, there is a SIHA Grant Coordinator who will help volunteers each year identify and apply for applicable grants. SIHA also holds some of the same yearly group fundraisers each year through partnerships already in place. These supports are in place to ensure that financial constraints are not a barrier to qualified volunteers being able to participate in this placement.
