There are several ways you can help!
Support a volunteer
The budget for one volunteer is on average $ 20,000 per year. 80% of this amount goes directly for the support of the volunteer: for insurance, to make sure they are safe, their medical care plan, stipend, training, living and transportation, and direct follow up while they serve on the projects. The rest is for management of the organization. A gift of $5,000 will cover all the costs associated to training and support on the ground for one volunteer for one year, $1,200 will cover all travel expenses for one volunteer, and $300 will cover one month of food and stipend for one volunteer.
Support a project
By sending its skilled volunteers, FIDESCO provides an essential support to its local partners who work in underserved communities. FIDESCO strives to leverage this support by finding funds earmarked to projects that are crucial for the future of the local partners. FIDESCO receives many requests for support and performs a due diligence through its volunteers on the ground and the FIDESCO representative offices’ staff before selecting them in its portofolio of “projects in need of funding”.

As we continue to send more volunteers overseas, we need lawyers, accountants, filmakers, marketers, anyone with a skill who wants a chance to assist internationally, or is looking to build their skillset, would be extremaly valuable and would play a critical role in our mission.
