ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
Normally all the volunteers live in shared flats, have their own room but share a kitchen and a bathroom with 3 other volunteers. Food money will be paid out to you as well as money to buy the local transportation monthly ticket or you just buy a bike. Leipzig is a very nice city to ride a bike. If you wish we can as well try to organize a host family.
