You can apply directly to us. We do not charge for volunteer placements, but we ask volunteers to pay for their own travel, insurance, accommodation and living expenses. We do not stipulate a minimum length for placements and we welcome all volunteers with a genuine desire to help improve the lives of the less privileged rural community. The YPF is a small NGO which often attracts independent volunteers directly through friends, family or word of mouth. If you are interested in applying please email us to with a copy of your cv.

Working Hours

Exact working hours are not fixed and depend on the nature of the work. Volunteers are expected to work on their own initiative and organize their own pattern of work. As a guide, office hours are 9 - 5pm but volunteers may be required outside of these hours with breaks during the day. The majority of the sectors are closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
