Trips and Volunteer Vacations
Why pay to volunteer? This is a commonly-asked, but easily answered, question.

Most of the programs that offer international volunteer opportunities charge volunteers a fee in order to cover their year-round coordinating and operational costs. Many also need to raise funds to contribute materials and other resources to the overseas project.

A host community generally will cater for accomodation, feeding and  field transport where necessary. If they had the funds to pay a stipend, they would probably hire a local person instead - someone who speaks the language, understands the community and culture, and is more inclined to stick around.

That said, there are a few international volunteer programs - such as the Peace Corps, International Executive Service Corps, and a few others - which will cover the cost of your room, board, and airfare. In most other cases, part of volunteering abroad means a commitment to fundraising.
