Volunteer - Finance
Generally speaking, volunteers are expected to finance their own stay here.
For long-term volunteers, getting off-campus housing is recommended. You can rent a decent size apartment for about $350~$400 a month. To rent a house, our estimate would be around $800-$1,000 a month.
Food costs can vary greatly, depending on your preferences.
Groceries are generally much cheaper than the average western country. Imported products are more expensive though. For example,
- a large bag of rice: $10
- a bag of potatoes: $2
- 1 kg of fruit: $3
- 1 whole chicken (uncooked): $6-7
- a box of cereal: $7-8

For a couple, $100 a week for food would probably be plenty even if you ate out a couple of times (again, depending on what kind of restaurants you go to).
