Shadow on Concrete Wall

Programs 

There are many reasons for you to embark on a volunteer program whether it be getting exposure in your line of work while you study, taking time learn more about yourself or even go a gap year where you’re  just here to stay in this beautiful part of the world while making friends and international contacts.

 

Enjoy the freedom of the weekends to explore the town and its nightlife or take up one of the adventure activities so you too can experience the tourist attractions in the area.

 

Our dedicated team at Firefly Falls takes care of all general basic home-stay arrangements such as serviced accommodation, meals, transport to and from assignments, laundry, WiFi. We are thus always available to support our volunteers with any routine and/or more specific requirements, and assist with practical recommendations on exploring local leisure-time attractions, as well as for any further planned travels through the country.
