The volunteer will most likely live with other volunteers or with host family. The volunteer might have to share a room with another volunteer of the same gender. The project is about 15 minutes bus ride from the flat that AUS has rented for the volunteers and most of our host families are also very centrally located in Reykjavík so the volunteer should find it easy to travel to and from work. The volunteer will be provided with food or food allowance. The volunteer will be provided with a bus card.
To support this work the ABC Children’s Aid has established a market for new and used goods. People donate goods which are then resold and the profit used directly to support the children. The market sells new and used products for a good price. The market is also frequently visited by people browsing, sitting down to read a book and to communicate with staff and volunteers. The market is not just a shop but also a place for people to socialize. There is also hot coffee ready for anyone wanting to visit whether they are shopping or looking for companionship. It is a lively atmosphere with about 7 staff members and volunteers who share tasks depending on need and interest.
