You have your own bedroom, sharing kitchen and bathroom with other volunteers. The ICT Campus provides you with pretty much everything you need: a place to sleep, work space, a cafeteria, an eco-supermarket, an outside gym, and options for leisure activities. Despite high temperatures you can stay focused and watch a rural area flourish. The ICT campus is a community of motivated people who all take their part in driving our mission. Students, trainers, volunteers, staff, management, and locals are living together in an enriching and multicultural environment.Lake-view is guaranteed from every angle of the campus and the sun rising over the lake in the morning is the perfect source of inspiration for a creative day of work.
