There are several ways that you can help the Birds of Paradise
Please bear in mind that this is a grass roots project with very little money in the pot - often no more than 50 Euros at any one time. This means that we can't offer our volunteers free accommodation, an allowance, or unlimited support.
But what we can offer is our sincere appreciation, our friendship, high fives from the kids, and advice as and when you need it.
Please check out our Volunteering section and FAQs to find out more about teaching for us. From there, all you need to do is tell us a little about yourself and when you'd like to come, and if we think you're a suitable fit for the project, we'll book you in for that period.
We can help you organise an airport transfer to Dahab, but finding accommodation will be up to you - there's information on our FAQ page.
We always appreciate teaching materials as it's often difficult or expensive to buy them in South Sinai. If you're travelling to Dahab and have some room in your luggage, any art materials, educational books, flashcards, games and toys for primary school aged children would be gratefully accepted.
Dolls, cars, fancy dress outfits, face paints, etc. are other ideas that would be welcomed.
To arrange delivery to the project, please contact us.
Occasionally, people offer to donate funds to the project which are invaluable to go towards:
- Monthly rent
- Electricity bills
- Ceiling fans
- We're also saving for an air conditioning unit as it gets so hot in the summer months - up to 48 degrees some days
If you decide to donate funds, we'll get back to you and let you know what we've decided to buy with your money. You can choose to donate anonymously, or we'll post to our Facebook page with who you are and what we bought with your contribution.
For further details please contact us.
