Organisation Fees

Xu Bos goal is to build strong relationships between people from all over the world and carefully selected host projects. Xu Bo is a non profit organisation and programs are fully funded by participant fees. Host project organizations are never asked to contribute to or absorb the direct costs associated with taking part in our programs.

The participants fee pays for your direct program costs such as orientation, language training, materials, host family and project screening, local transportation, food, lodging and ongoing program monitoring. To provide participants with a consistently high quality program Xu Bo does also maintain a proper infrastructure and has to cover general administrative costs including rent, salaries, record keeping, communication, and information services.
