What problems can arise during the Project?
Not all projects can 100% fulfill your expectations because all organizers, countries and culture are different. Unfortunately, association „Unique Projects“ cannot be responsible for that and ensure fulfillment of all your needs.

Situations you should immediately inform our organization about: programme or activities not taking place and/or does not suit provided activity table completely; you are forced to do unacceptable works which are not related to the programme etc.

In case of theft or accident not in the place of the Project, neither association „Unique Projects“ nor receiving organization is responsible. In case of an accident in the place of Project is responsible receiving organization (which is not association „Unique Projects“).
