GO Fellows play a vital role in our vision of sustainable orphan care throughout the world. Acting alongside our field operations team, they operate on the front lines of our efforts, working to make the GO Project vision a tangible reality.
About the GO Fellowship Program
The GO Fellowship Program requires a six-month commitment to living and working overseas. Although GO Project will provide for our fellows’ basic needs such as: one round-trip airline ticket, two meals per day (which is all the locals eat) and room and board, GO Fellowship is a VOLUNTEER opportunity. Those accepted into the program will be required to raise support for all other expenses related to the position.
