Liability Waiver


Please Read Carefuly


Dreamers Wish Foundation acts only as an agent for the accommodation providers,
organizations, and transportation companies that we use abroad. We do not accept
responsibility for any damage, loss, injury, or other irregularities in connection with any
transportation, accommodation, or other service provided. Our refund policy states that clients
may not cancel trips but may transfer for 12 months. Other expenses incurred by a volunteer
such as flight and insurance are not covered by Dreamers Wish Foundation in the event of a
program cancellation. As such, volunteers are strongly encouraged to purchase trip cancellation
insurance to cover these additional expenses. Special requests and dietary restrictions will be
accommodated where possible but cannot be guaranteed.

Services and refunds

For the Independent Volunteer Program, Dreamers Wish Foundation agrees to provide the
following services:
Airport reception on arrival Transfer to Dreamers Wish Foundation. Orientation & language
training (upon request). Accommodation during orientation and training and during volunteer
placement will be provided. Unless an option is selected in the extra package, all volunteers will be
provided with breakfast but not lunch and dinner. Lunch and dinner meal plans may be
purchased at checkout. Additional services provided will be listed at checkout in the itinerary
included at booking.
Additional language training if selected for Group Programs, Dreamers Wish Foundation agrees
to provide the services listed as included for the program. Dreamers Wish Foundation staff are
available to work with volunteers and organizations to help ensure an effective placement
experience. However, in the event that a placement is not meeting the expectations of a
volunteer, the volunteer must bring this forward with a Dreamers Wish Foundation staff and
request a change of placement. Refunds will only be issued in cases where Dreamers Wish
Foundation failed to deliver any of the aforementioned services. As Dreamers Wish Foundation
often must pay for services in advance for volunteers, no refunds will be issued for a decreased
program duration once a volunteer has arrived overseas. If a volunteer decides to leave after
arriving for any reason such as dismissal due to bad conduct, or personal reasons, there will no
refunds or transfers. However, transfers will be allowed for cancellations due to acts of god or
sickness with a verified doctor’s note.

Code of Conduct


You are expected to act in accordance with all local laws while you are
participating in a program. You should be aware that in many countries where you may work,
penalties for crimes such as possession and/or trafficking of contraband substances are very
severe and range from long-term imprisonment to death. Failure to act in accordance with these

local laws will be considered a breach of this contract and will result in your immediate dismissal
from the program. If such a case were to arise, we accept no liability or responsibility for you,
financial or otherwise. As a volunteer, you may be working closely with members of the
community that you have come to assist. You are expected to respect and abide by the local
cultural customs as much as possible. While we recognize your right to have an opinion that
differs from the communities that you will be working with, we request that you not attempt to
force your opinion on the community and its members. Aggressive, belligerent assertion of your
opinion on matters of religion or cultural norms will not be tolerated and will constitute a breach
of this contract. In such a case, you may be removed from the program. If such a case were to
arise, Dreamers Wish Foundation accepts no liability or responsibility for you from that point on,
financial or otherwise. While consumption of alcohol or other legal inebriates is permitted
(provided that consumption of these substances is in accordance with all local laws), we require
that this is kept within reasonable limits. If you are jeopardizing your safety or the safety of
others, or your actions are not in accordance with locally acceptable behavior, you may be
requested to leave your program. If such a case were to arise, Dreamers Wish Foundation
accepts no liability or responsibility for you from that point on, financial or otherwise.

Receiving Payment for Volunteering


Some organizations may offer you an allowance or
payment in exchange for your volunteer work. This is entirely at their discretion and is beyond
our control. As a participant in our placement program, you agree to never request any
remuneration, financial or otherwise, in exchange for your volunteer work. Should such a
payment be offered to you and you choose to accept this payment, you agree to pay all
applicable taxes, act in accordance with all local laws governing such activities and ensure that
you are not acting in violation of the terms of your visa. Should you breach the terms of your
visa by working for pay, you risk immediate removal from your placement, deportation from the
country, fines and/or imprisonment. Therefore, we strongly recommend against receiving
payment for the work that you do abroad and if you choose to disregard this warning, you do so
entirely at your own risk.

Visas and Travel Documentation - (Please read carefully)

The type of visa we ask volunteers to apply for is a tourist Visa. These costs have varied widely
over the last several years but can range from 50 USD for a single entry and 100 USD for multiple
5-year entry. We can help with your visa application. Your pre-departure information will provide
details about how these visas are acquired and their current costs. However, these costs are not
within our control and can change without notice. As such, we cannot guarantee that the visa
fees will not change from what is listed in our materials. The cost of these visas is not included
in our program fees and is the responsibility of the volunteer. The other countries in which we
will be working do not have a visa specifically designed for short to mid-term volunteers.
Therefore, most of our volunteers come on a tourist permit or visa. The details regarding the
process to acquire these permits or visas and their associated costs will be outlined in our
pre-departure materials but can change over time without notice. Volunteers are also
responsible for ensuring that they have a valid passport that will not expire for at least 6 months
after their scheduled return from their host country. Please note that volunteers will need to have

this passport in order to receive their visa and it can take several months to apply for these
documents, so your prompt attention to these documents is essential.


Payments and Cancellation

To register for a program, you must submit your non-refundable registration fee of USD 250.00.
If we cancel the program, we will refund this deposit. However, if you remove yourself from the
program for any reason, this deposit is non-refundable. Your ticket will be eligible for transfers
within the 12-month period after purchase. Final payment is due 60 days prior to the scheduled
start date for your program. While we will do our utmost to minimize any penalties charged,

Vaccinations, Inoculations, and Medical Advice


It is your responsibility to seek medical
advice regarding the vaccinations and inoculations that are appropriate for a visitor to your host
country. While we include a link recommended by the CDC for covid testing and yellow fever
shots at your local Health Clinic, you must recognize that we are not medical experts and in no
way should this list be viewed as qualified medical advice. It is only included to provide you with
a guideline of what to expect when you do meet with a medical professional prior to your
departure. It is also your responsibility to ensure that you have met with a medical professional
regarding your personal fitness and that they have indicated that you are in appropriate physical
condition to take part in your program. You are also responsible for ensuring that you do not
take part in any activities that would jeopardize your health and safety and if at any point on
your program you feel that an activity is putting you at risk, you must discontinue your
participation in those activities immediately. Should you choose to participate in an activity that
you feel is unsafe or in any way jeopardizes your personal well-being, you are doing so
completely of your own choosing and against our recommendations.

Alterations to Program Content, Location, Duration or Activity


Many of our programs take place in countries and regions where external influences beyond

our control may force us to alter the content, location, duration, and/or activities of your program.

Some of the factors that may contribute to these changes include but are not limited to the

following: war or other military conflict, acts of terrorism or threats of such acts, epidemics, severe weather, fire, riots, natural disasters, and any other circumstance that threatens the safety and well-being of you or other

participants. While we will do our best to make alternative arrangements for you if such a case
were to arise, we cannot guarantee that another placement will be available for you. Given that
exposure to these risks is a part of traveling and volunteering abroad, we cannot offer refunds or
be held responsible for any costs that you might incur where such a situation to arise. Dreamers
Wish Foundation also reserves the right to change accommodation providers without notice
should it be required. As such, while uncommon, volunteers may need to move from one
accommodation provider to another at some point during their program. Periodically, an
organization may choose to shorten a volunteer placement or to alter the tasks that they require
of a volunteer. These actions are beyond the control of Dreamers Wish Foundation and, in such
cases, Dreamers Wish Foundation will work with the volunteer to find a suitable alternative
placement. As these actions are beyond the control of Dreamers Wish Foundation, no refunds
will be issued for changes to the content.

Personal Information

We will not share your personal information with any third parties. However, there may be
occasions where we need to transfer this, or other personal information provided to us by you or
