Project hosted by

A group of 8 volunteers are invited to spend 10 days in south London. But it won’t feel as if you are in a city: volunteers will stay at a Scout Centre in the midst of woodland with no houses in sight! Dulwich is a pleasant, quiet corner of London.

Requirements

HOSTING FEE: It is difficult and expensive to stay in London so we have to charge £140 GBP for the 10 days. This will pay for the accommodation and a basic budget for food. The fee should be paid upon arrival.
