Scope of Work
Expectations from Projects
Critical and Crucial Points
Participants should arrive at least two days before the camp starts for orientation and they should not go direct to the camp before coming to ZWA office. It is important to note that projects locations may change due to several reasons beyond our control. There might be few applications for participation, late cancellation by volunteers or the community failing to make its contribution to the project in the last minute, and finally insecure situations. Therefore volunteers are urged to be flexible and accept alternative options. On arrival at the airport, please take taxi to our office, which are in Katanga in Norton. Our offices are closed over the weekend and public holidays, in case of emergency phone us on the numbers above. Please NOTE: Do not leave your baggage with the taxi driver.
