Funding and fundraising

The project is fully funded for all volunteers.


  • In return all Team Members are asked to fundraise a target of £400. 
  • The Team Leader will be responsible for supporting the team to deliver at least one team fundraising event, and will support the team members to reach their individual targets.
  • Fundraising training and support will be provided by Azizi Life, the Team Leader and the University Volunteering Team. 
  • This will contribute to the project and to the work of Azizi Life, and you’ll be able to see how the money is spent once in-country.

  • Arrange and pay for return flights from the UK to Rwanda.
  • Cover the cost of a tourist visa on arrival in Rwanda.
