FAQ

Can i fundraise my registration fee?
No, your registration fee is a personal cost and donated money can’t be used for this.
When is my Volunteering Fee due?
4 weeks before departure, giving you plenty of time to fundraise.

1. Thrive Africa have the right to change project start and end dates. (We aim to only change dates if necessary and usually only by 1 or 2 days. We aim to inform you several months in advance. Before you book flights we will confirm dates with you.)
2. Registration Fees are refundable for 14 days from payment. After 14 days Registration Fees are non-refundable. When confirming your place it prevents anyone else from taking it, if you cancel we have to re-advertise to fill that place; for this reason after 14 days we are unable to refund Registration Fees.
3. The projects in Ghana may change at the discretion of Thrive Africa. A project may finish or a new project may start so it may be necessary at times to transfer volunteers to different projects.
4. Accommodation, food, transport and all other costs related to tourist attractions/volunteer excursions are not included in the volunteer price and volunteers need to pay for all tourism related expenses themselves. (Thrive Africa provides an excursion package at cost price to volunteers that can be purchased to cover all these expenses.)
