EXPEDITIO emerged and survived thanks to volunteerism. During its existence, a large number of Expeditio activities was based on volunteer work. The first of our projects were exclusively voluntary, and the little resources that we have managed to secure from sponsors and donors would be spent on printing costs, travel, materials or basic living expenses on the field. Often, it would be necessary to invest even own funds so that individual projects and activities could be implemented. At a later stage, as the organization developed, we managed to provide minimal resources for implementation of activities and covering the fees, but we still mostly invested a substantial amount of unpaid work. Also, some of our friends and supporters helped on volunteer basis to EXPEDITIO at a time when we were not able to provide funding for certain activities (mainly translation). In the following, we shall list our volunteers, as well as some examples of volunteer support to others provided by Expeditio since 1997.
