The Cagliero Project is wholeheartedly committed to supporting overseas Salesian communities with long term volunteers. It has been a very difficult time as our program is unable to run at full capacity with the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are unable to accept applications for mid-year departures.
At this point we are unable to determine whether or not there will be departures in January 2021. We will continue to closely monitor the current situation and will see what might be possible for 2021. We are also very aware that we will have to consider each specific placement country. We may be able to send volunteers to some countries before others. At all times we will follow government advice on international travel and will consider each country and placement on a case by case basis.
Please be assured that we will resume both our long term and immersion program as soon as it is safe to do so.
Please feel free to Contact Us if you are interested in being a Cagliero Project volunteer and we will be in touch once we have a clearer idea of when we can resume.
