Platform2 is a unique opportunity for 18-25 year olds from the UK to volunteer in a developing country and then come back and creatively express their experiences in the UK.
It's aimed at people who wouldn't otherwise get the chance to volunteer abroad, so it's fully-funded and free for the volunteer.
The programme includes return economy flights, travel insurance, local food and accommodation, a small local allowance, health screening, a medical kit, all minimum required vaccinations, transfers to and from the airport in country and to and from the project, a guidebook, and full training in the UK and in the country.
Platform2 is a 3 year programme which will see more than 2,500 18 - 25 year olds volunteer for 10 weeks in a number of developing countries including South Africa, Ghana, India and Peru.
