Program Fees Include:
Several IIMAC programs self funded and supported by volunteers. However our school most needed items are volunteers and resources including teaching and classroom materials, we cannot afford to cover all of the costs associated with training, travel, insurance, and other expenses related to placing a teacher overseas. Because Illegal Immigrant Mother And Child receives no income from government grants or an endowment, we ask each volunteer to contribute or fund raise the cost of their placement and training in these countries, while the host community provides housing and a small stipend to support you during your service.
By requesting that volunteers help fund their service overseas, IIMAC is able to provide volunteers with necessary accommodation and materials to teach in our free education classrooms for the poor that would not otherwise be able to afford qualified teachers .The majority of our volunteers end up fundraising at least some portion of their program cost.
