It is the responsibility of the volunteer to carry all necessary documents when traveling abroad. While KIPOK AFRICA may advise the volunteer on required travel documentation, KIPOK AFRICA is not responsible for any supporting documents necessary for the volunteer’s travel needs or other purposes. Volunteers are responsible for ensuring their travel documents are up to date and valid for travel.
KIPOK AFRICA does not provide the volunteer with insurance of any kind. Travel insurance is mandatory for each volunteer, and the volunteer must purchase this prior to departing on the trip.

This must cover their entire travel period.
