What kind of gift will be good for my host family?

There are number of gifts to get for your host family while volunteering abroad. However, the type of gifts does not relay matter since you are making a kind act. Your idea of presenting something will be appreciated more rather than the type of gift you present. It is good to buy something simple and not too expensive when searching gifts for host family. Some of the common gifts to present your host family are chocolates and candies. Try to find something unique and that represents the country, city or place you belong. Either way, your kind gesture will be appreciated more rather than what gift you present.

Do I Need To Bring A Gift For My Volunteer Project?

Again, bringing a gift for your volunteer project is not mandatory. However, you may want to consider bringing gifts depending upon the type of work you'll be doing. If you are volunteering in an Orphanage or a School, you may want to bring some gifts for children with whom you are going to spend a lot of time. it is also true that the orphanage and schools are lacking supplies for the children so, if there is anything at all you can bring for those children will be highly appreciated.

What Kind Of Gift Would Be Good For Project?

Most of the volunteer bring gifts for children. It is advisable for you to bring educational and recreational items such as pen, pencil, story books, notebooks, coloring books, games, clothes, etc., especially for children. However, don't complicate your gift buying process. You can also get some idea about gifts for host family/volunteer project by doing research on the internet and reading past volunteer reviews. If you are willing to get a gift for your volunteer project but don't have any idea on what to get, you can contact your in-county coordinator to identify the needs. It is a good idea since you are sending your money on something which is extremely need for the project and people.
