Money: I will have no income for a year and I currently have a wee bit of debt. I need to clear the debt and have a bit in savings before I go. This should be manageable [29/04/09 – particularly if I keep to my new budget].
Accommodation & Costs: VSO sort the difficult bits and give a monthly stipend which should cover some percentage of living costs but I don’t know how much. [29/04/09 – Most volunteers seem to find that the monthly stipend covers all their costs although some, in major cities, may need a little more sometimes.]
