Volunteer expectations in Bangladesh
Basha volunteers must cover all their own experiences including flights, medical insurance, room, board, airport pickup and personal expenses. Staff will work with you to arrange accommodation that fits your budget and needs, and is safe and clean.
Basha Bangladesh volunteers are expected to participate in the culture in which they serve. In Bangladesh, women are expected to wear shalwar chamise or sari's in public (covering your head is optional). Men are expected to wear long trousers in public. Physical contact between male and female in public is taboo and should be avoided by volunteers, including married couples serving together.
Basha works with people from very impoverished conditions. Volunteers are expected to have simple life styles when in Bangladesh. Air conditioning, hot running water, and consistent electric supply are unlikely. Public transportation will be used the majority of the time although cars with drivers can be hired if desired.
Basha volunteers may want to help by giving money or gifts to people. Please clear any such gifts with your Basha supervisor. Gifts of cash are discouraged. Making contributions to a programme or purchasing items that everyone can enjoy are preferred.
Should you volunteer with Basha in Bangladesh, it is sure to be exciting, challenging, and life changing. However, please make sure you are prepared to take care of yourself. In addition, please talk to staff about setting good boundaries, how to be truly helpful, any emotions that are overwhelming, and cross cultural situations you need help navigating understanding.
