Project sponsors can choose from a list of approved SeaAid projects and locations that have been developed in concert with local village leaders, anthropologists, and aid workers representing coastal communities worldwide. Project sponsors can choose to fund a particular project in its entirety, or they can partially fund a specific project of their choice. Donors can also contribute to the SeaAid general fund which is used to finance our projects, pay to maintain our research vessel Taza, and cover our administrative costs.
All project sponsors are both welcome and encouraged to participate directly in the project at the community level so as to be able to enjoy the immense satisfaction that comes from helping others in need.For those sponsors who choose to fully fund a SeaAid project themselves, the SeaAid Project Coordinator can set up your project as a "Volunteer Vacation" for your family, friends, co-workers, etc. who would work on the project exclusively. This option is especially appealing for corporate team-building retreats as well as for active boating families that would like to utilize their yacht for a SeaAid project. Most projects only take 2 to 4 weeks to complete, but the memories, strengthened bond, and sense of pride that you and your family leave with will likely stay with you for a lifetime!
At the end of each project, project sponsors will receive a detailed report, including photos and video footage of the project village, it's people, and of the project construction process. Many times sponsors will also receive letters and gifts from the community as tokens of appreciation to the project sponsors for their generosity.
