Note that Nanquanu works both with volunteers and paid workers, and persons who mix both forms, depending on, among other things, available financial means and someone’s individual situation. Nanquanu strives to pay anyone for the agreed contributions. However, specifically in new projects, voluntary contributions will be indispensable to gain the momentum for acquiring the financial means to do so.
