Terms & Conditions


Please read GGHTx’s Terms & Conditions below prior to submitting your online application.


It is the participant’s responsibility to carry the necessary documents when traveling internationally (I.e. valid passport). GGHTx is not responsible for ensuring the participant’s travel documents are in proper order to travel. Participants are solely responsible for ensuring their travel documents are up to date and valid for their planned travel.


GGHTx does not provide participants with insurance of any kind. Travel insurance is strongly recommended for each participant and participants should purchase this prior to departing on their trip. The participant is responsible for evaluating and determining the kind of insurance coverage he/she should have.

Personal Risk

The participant acknowledges and accepts the responsibilities and risks that international travel and international volunteer programs include. These risks increase because GGHTx’s programs take place in developing countries. The participant fully and solely accepts these risks as an inherent part of their planned travel. The participant assumes all liability and responsibility for any eventuality that may occur, including personal injury, emotional distress, death, and/or loss or damage to personal property. Furthermore, the participant agrees to hold harmless GGHTx, its partners, and its employees. The participant also agrees NOT to make any type of claim, financial or otherwise, against any of the aforementioned parties.


The participant agrees to indemnify GGHTx against any and all liability arising directly or indirectly from traveling, living, and/or working internationally. Furthermore, the participant agrees NOT to hold GGHTx liable for any actions or omissions of any of its partner organizations. To the full extent permissible at law, all representations, terms, warranties, guarantees, or conditions whether implied by statute, common law or custom of the trade or otherwise, including, but not limited to, implied warranties and guarantees, are excluded.

Rules & Safety Regulations

The participant agrees to abide by all rules and regulations as stipulated by GGHTx, its employees, project sites, and housing partners. The participant agrees to comply with GGHTx’s codes of conduct and safety waiver. The participant agrees to abide by all local laws, as well as all rules stipulated by GGHTx and its employees and partners. Whereas GGHTx may provide basic information about local laws, GGHTx is NOT a legal expert and it is the participant’s sole responsibility to ensure he/she is in compliance with the law.

Use of illegal drugs is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate dismissal from the program. 


Force Majeure

GGHTx assumes no liability or responsibility for any lack of performance or failure of its services or programs where that failure arises from any cause reasonably beyond GGHTx’s control.

Governing Law

These terms and conditions and GGHTx’s programs are governed by the applicable laws as determined by the participant’s destination country.
