What makes you a good M/LTV?

If you are...

- organised, responsible and well-prepared.
- emotionally stable and have a good sense of humour.
- open-minded, adaptable and ready to adjust to a different culture.
- self-reliant and capable of improvisation when needed.
- patient, flexible and able to work in an international team.
- willing to learn about other cultures and lifestyles.
- committed to sharing your knowledge and skills.

...you will be a great M/LTV...but if you only fulfil some and not all the above criteria, you should still apply, as it is never too late to learn!

Quote of the day

« I can say that the best things about the workcamp and this whole experience were the chance of making a real difference to the lives of very needy children. This is an extremely valuable project where volunteers can have a massive impact. Also the possibility of learning a huge amount about a country so different from our own. I learnt ten times as much by carrying out a workcamp than I would ever do backpacking. »
