Friends For Asia

Terms and Conditions

The term “participant” refers to any individual who is (or will be) partaking in Friends For Asia’s volunteer or intern projects.

Participation in Friends For Asia projects begins when an individual is picked up by Friends For Asia staff upon arrival into Nepal.

The project fee deposit is US$195. The deposit fee is not refundable under any circumstances. The balance of the project fee (the entire project fee minus the US$195 deposit) is due one month prior to the participant’s project start date. If the fee is not received one month prior to the start date then the participant will be disqualified from the project. Once the entire project fee is received 50% of the balance of the project fee (not including the non-refundable deposit) will be refunded if the participant cancels prior to the start of his or her participation.

In the condition that a participant is unable to complete two or more weeks of his or her project due to illness, injury, or death of an immediate family member – Friends For Asia will give the participant a non-transferable credit to be used toward future participation in the originally-designated project. This credit will cover a period not exceeding the remaining number of weeks the participant will be missing and will be dependent upon dates and availability.

In order to receive the credit for future participation, the participant must meet the following requirements:

  • In the case of a death of a family member, the participant must present proof of the death and of the relationship to the deceased.
