SONATI policy toward free volunteering and accommodation

Volunteers are part of the SONATI family, and we will never charge volunteers money to help us doing our work. But- we also expect volunteers to understand that we cannot supply free accommodation in all cases. Free accommodation is available only for volunteers at Esteli, at Leon we cannot supply this service. Volunteers in Leon can stay in a local home in the center of the city close to Sonati Hostel(up to 6 volunteers) the price will vary depending upon numbers (includes free kitchen, private bathroom, dining room). Payment is direct to the owner, not for SONATI.
