Where does the VIA Project Fee go to?
Part of the fee goes to VIA to support the organisation of projects in the Netherlands, the placement process and the organisation around it, the preparation of the volunteer during the Introduction Day, the evaluation after the project and the insurance.
The other part of the fee goes to SCI International and is redistributed among the local branches based on the projects organised and the volunteers sent.
Costs for food and accomodation are covered by Stichting VIA and the workcamp partner, so the participation fee does not go directly to the project.
